Current Class Descriptions:

Fairy Lights (ages 0-3+) meet Tuesday and Friday afternoons 4:30-5pm. A lovely oasis of an alternative to that often-challenging window between nap time and dinner! The classes are lovingly designed around the Musikgarten Family Music curriculum, a multifaceted gem of a method with plenty of singing and movement, age appropriate focused listening activities, exploration of percussion instruments, and ear training in rhythm and pitch. Drop-ins and late entry are an option if space allows.

Piano Twinklers (ages 4.5-6+) meet Tuesday afternoons 3:15-3:45pm. The first half of class overlaps with Violin Twinklers for Dalcroze Eurythmics style movement-based activities. The second half focuses on beginning piano technique, solos and duets, ear training, and sight-reading.

Violin Twinklers (ages 6-10) meet Tuesday afternoons 3-3:30pm. The first half of class is devoted to beginning technique, playing solos and duets, and working on ear training and sight-reading. The second half overlaps with Piano Twinklers for Dalcroze Eurythmics style movement-based activities.

Viola Fireflies (by audition only) meet Wednesday afternoons 3-3:45pm.
