We found this great post by Eloise Hellyer about taking children to various concerts and we wanted to share it! If you are interested in more, her website is http://www.violinteachersblog.com/en.
A few weeks ago, a well-known Russian virtuoso came to town to play a famous violin concerto with a pick-up orchestra. I immediately called all my students and insisted that their parents bring them to the concert. Why, you might ask, is this so important even for children as young as five or six years of age?
I am super excited about our offerings this summer! There really is a little bit of something for everyone! This summer, we are hosting weekly classes for babies all the way up to big kids and summer camps for preschoolers and school-aged kids!
Our Baby & Toddler classes are an extension of what we do in our daily music classes at Little Disciples Early Learning, but WITH parents. My favorite moments of my own kids from when they were little were in our weekly music classes. There will be 8 classes from the beginning of June through the beginning of August. We’ve placed classes on Monday afternoons at the end of the workday, and on Friday mornings.
Ms. Meredith is teaching a group piano class for kids ages 4 & 5. This is a perfect way to introduce your child to the piano during the summer. The class size is small, so there will be a lot of individual attention. For students who take this class, there is an option to participate in a morning music camp with lunch in between!
Ms. Meredith is also teaching a group beginner guitar class! We’ve had a few inquiries about guitar lessons, so we thought a little intro to guitar class would be awesome during the summer!
Preschool camps are being offered 5 different weeks during June and July. Sign up for 1 or all 5- your child will love learning about any and all topics! Camp topics are Musicals, Music Around the World, Famous Composers, the Orchestra, and our ever-popular Disney Camp! Students will be learning notes, rhythms, doing crafts, and activities. These camps are definitely on the “educational” side- you won’t be disappointed!
For our bigger kids, we are offering 3 different types of camps. Musical Theatre camp is going to be a great one for anyone who loves to sing and dance! No previous musical knowledge is necessary. For our students who have been taking piano for a couple of years and want to try something different, Rhythm & Key Masters and Fun with Chords are going to be a fabulous way of taking their musical knowledge to the next level!
Are you ready to sign up yet? We are offering an incentive to sign up early before March 1st- you will receive $25 off per camper. So, don’t wait! You won’t be sorry!
