Call and let's get started!
These weekly classes are action-filled - full of energy, often on the move, always exploring and learning - and their parents/caregiver. Together you’ll sing, chant, move, dance, listen, and play simple instruments, all activities that bridge the natural connection between music and movement through each wonder-filled semester.
Each lesson features movement activities for coordination, body awareness and control, exploration of space, and instruments such as rhythm sticks, jingles, rattles, drums, and resonator bars.
Additionally, you’ll receive a wonderful CD/Digital Download, a parent activity book, and a manipulative to use at home for more fun times together.

In these classes we combine Music Makers Around the World, with Music Makers At the Keyboard, and the children learn about The British Isles, Amerindians, Germany and African American heritage. They will learn folk songs and dances of the various cultures, learn about the musical background of each area, study maps, hear stories, and even sample some of the food!
This class continues to progress through the skill sequence as the children learn to become musically literate. Once the aural foundation has been laid, it is time to focus on symbols that represent the familiar tonal and rhythm patterns that make up the repertoire. Presented in the form of notation games, children are provided endless opportunities for repetition, ensuring that they become well familiar with both the sound and the look of these basic building blocks of the musical language. When the time is right, the children delight in finding the same patterns – and singing them – in the song pages that are provided for many of the songs being learned in the unit.
These skills – being able to hear the notation pattern that you see in the written music, and being able to see what you hear – are imperative for success in instrumental instruction, whether that is in the form of our keyboard class or as part of the school instrumental music program. Allow your child this year of excitement and exploration to ensure his or her success in future music-making activities.
Helpful home materials and CD's enable parents to work with students on musical patterns and notation games, listening exercises, and singing games to include the whole family. Involvement of the family is the key to success in the learning process.
A keyboard (not necessarily full size) or piano is absolutely crucial for practice at home of these simple melodies and chordal accompaniment we will work to develop throughout the weeks in these keyboard classes.
Interested? Invite a friend and come have lessons together!
Younger students (ages 6 - 9) should first complete the keyboard series before seeking private lessons in Miss Vicki's Music Studio. Please see the description of this fabulous class on CLASS DESCRIPTIONS.
