Families Making Music (Birth - 5 years) – Online!
A fun music program for the whole family, for babies to five-year olds! Sing, groove to the beat of the music, and play fun musical games. This 40 minute online classes will be delivered using the Zoom platform and can be downloaded onto your computers or tablets. Your instructor, Graylen Howard, will contact all participants a few days before the classes to explain what household “musical instruments” you will be using. Each week there will be a “musical theme” and families will create a musical instrument from the comfort of their own home which they will then showcase and use in a featured musical activity with all participants.
You will play pots and pans, buckets and tubs, wooden and metal spoons, water glasses and homemade shakers. Children will be singing, dancing, playing, moving and grooving just as they would in a regular in house music class.
(One registration per household)
