Summer Music FUNdamentals Classes

The Music FUNdamentals program provides a fun, activity-oriented, and nurturing environment in which children listen, move, sing, imitate, imagine, and create using the rich musical heritage of many cultures in rhyme, song, stories, and games.

Designed for children who have not yet begun or are in the early years of the study of an instrument, the sequential curriculum includes age-appropriate speech and sound activities, learning of simple movement patterns and dances, and using various percussion instruments in improvisation and composition.
