In these fun & interactive classes, your child will build a foundation and appreciation for making music while developing language skills, social skills, ability to focus, coordination, etc. With the use of percussion instruments, singing, fingerplays, puppets, movement exploration and props, your child will learn about tempo, rhythm, pitch (via solfege), dynamics, and more.
Caregiver participation is required.
This summer I will be offering both outdoor, in-person classes and online virtual classes. Due to Novel Coronovirus/COVID-19, participation in outdoor, in-person classes is at your own risk.
In regards to the outdoor, in-person classes, I will do my best to follow steps which will help to reduce chances of Covid-19 transmission, such as, class sizes will be limited to 8 families per class and each family will be encouraged to space themselves 2 metres/6 feet apart from other families. I also ask that if anyone (yourself or anyone in your household) show any symptoms of Covid-19, to please stay at home. If it happens to rain or there is a fair chance of rain, we will have our class on-line that day.
Everyone will need to bring a blanket or towel to sit on, as the grass can sometimes be wet in the morning. There are a couple of options for using instruments during class: 1) I can bring instruments that have been disinfected prior to each class (which I normally do anyways to avoid transmission of regular cold & flu) or 2) you bring your own instruments or things we would use for the virtual classes. Once registered, you will receive an email asking which option you prefer.
Outdoor, in-person classes: Hastings Community Centre (outside on the West side of the building, near the water park) starting Thursdays July 16th – August 20th from 9:45am – 10:30am or Saturdays July 18th – Aug 22nd 10:00-10:45am Or Pandora Park on Wednesdays July 15th – August 19th from 10:30-11:15am
On-line virtual classes will be offered on: Fridays starting July 17th – August 21st from 10:30am – 11:15am
If there is a high demand for these classes and they fill up, other days/times/locations will be added.
As well, if the cost of the classes is not within your budget, please email me and we can work something out 🙂
