I'm so excited to announce that I will be offering four new Kindermusik options this fall. Kindermusik has a great variety of 4-week curricula for children ages 2-4 and 4-6. I've decided to make some of those classes available in October and November. This is a great option for those of you who have wanted to try out Kindermusik but haven't been able to enroll due to schedules, time, or cost. As always, your tuition for these classes will include excellent home materials which you can use to extend your child's learning at home.
The ABC Music & Me classes that I will offer include:
On the Go gets children moving. They will use their locomotor skills—and their active imaginations—to drive in cars, chug along in trains, zoom and soar in planes, and bumpity-bump in buses. It’s non-stop learning as you explore the learning focus: “I can move quickly and slowly. I have creative ideas.”
This class will meet Saturdays from 10:00-10:30 a.m. on October 15, 22, 29 & November 5.
Home Sweet Home uses everyday tasks around the house to explore the learning focus: “I can move high and low. I can make high and low sounds. I can pretend.” Children will have fun rap-rap-rapping, pop-pop-popping, and splash-splash-splashing their way through a great big house in their great big imaginations.
This class will meet Saturdays from 10:00-10:30 a.m. on November 12 & 19 & December 3 & 10.
For 4-6 year olds:
Jazz Kitchen takes music, sounds, and instruments…..into the kitchen! In Jazz Kitchen children will explore food in its many dimensions….shopping at the grocery store, then heating up the kitchen with chopping, dicing, making toast, and cooking noodles from scratch—all to the rhythms and sounds of jazz. They’ll also explore quarter-note and eighth-note rhythms with their hands, their bodies, and possibly a keyboard.
This class will meet on Saturdays from 9:15-9:45 a.m. on October 15, 22, 29 & November 5.
Jumping Beans jumps into the rhythms of Latin America! Children will listen to a variety of Latin music styles, play instruments, dance, and investigate the concept of a musical rest. They will move and stop their bodies, explore expressive movement, sing some Spanish words and phrases, and even jump like jumping beans. Ole!
This class will meet on Saturdays from 9:15-9:45 a.m. on November 12 & 19 & December 3 & 10.
Tuition is $50 for each class. This includes four 30-minute class sessions and Home Materials.
If you enroll by October 4th, you can take advantage of our Fall 2011 Promo which allows you to enroll in 2 classes for $90. Additionally, if you enroll two siblings, you will receive a sibling discount of $90/2 classes. If you have children who fall into each age group, but would like to enroll them in the same session for convenience, just visit with me and we can make arrangements for that to happen.
Incidentally, I also have openings in my other three classes. Contact me if you are interested in finding out more about these semester-long classes.
