Youth Classes & Experiences
An introduction to the basics of music including note values, time signatures, dynamics, and more. Imagination is key in these classes as we move like bears, foxes, skunks, dragons, trees, snowflakes and more! This class is led by the piano and a Dalcroze teacher.
Our imagination takes us many places as we learn how the different musical elements feel as we move them. This feeling is translated into descriptions and words as we describe how the music sounded and how it made us want to move. These descriptions are named as musical terms that are the building blocks of music. Learning first through the body and movement enables long-term retention and understanding of music theory concepts.
