Fill in the Gap Music



"Music is the art of thinking with sounds."
-Jules Combarieu





When Can My Child Take Formal Music Lessons?

I've heard that question thousands of times in the last ten years!  Every child is different, but generally, unless you are working with a teacher or program which incorporates 'play time' and a well thought-out, developmentally appropriate curriculum, you are wasting your money if you start them too young!  Formal lessons require children to have a good attention span, ensure that they will practice, and are 'mechanically' able to manage an instrument.   


Our new FIG (FILL IN THE GAP) music class, taught by Gail Burnett (Miss Gail), will help your 6-8 year old grow musically and help prepare them for formal instrument lessons down the road.

We will blend new activities, skills and challenges suited to this age range with 'fun' structure which will lay the foundation for further and more formal music learning... These activities include basic rhythm notation, large and small movement and dances, vocal awareness and singing, solfege, games, drumming, basic conducting, improvisation, 'music' stories AND UKULELE!! Each child will get their own ukulele as part of class materials. It is a fun and fairly easy instrument for this age to start with. So technically, we are learning an instrument, but one that can be learned in a manageable way for this age group.

The fee for this eight or ten week class includes a 1 hour weekly class, materials, AND the child's own ukulele (available in several fun colors; we will be ordering these after the start of classes and beginning instruction on the third week of class)

If your child will be coming directly from school or home school classes, lunch will need to be provided for them and child will need to be walked to the room and picked up by a parent. We will not be able to provide a 'lunch monitor' service.  This is a 'drop-off' class, but parents are welcome to stay if they wish! (no younger siblings can participate unless they meet guidelines and are registered).
