Weekly and Daily Summer Programs
We are excited to be offering Summer Clubs for Kids this July and August! Summer Clubs for Kids encompasses several different programs, depending on age level and frequency of meetings. All of our programs are virtual and many were built to foster independence in attendees, so that mom and dad at home can work while the kids make music!
If you are looking for a program that helps your child find community, create bonds with peers, foster independence and builds upon digital skills they’ve learned through remote school, then these programs are for your family.
Junior Explorer (ages 5 – 7) and Explorers (ages 8 – 10)
This week-long program will be a group theatre experience where each day has a different story for your child to tell! From a “Trip to the Beach,” to a “Voyage to Space,” Explorers will work together to create fantastic short stories using songwriting, dance, costumes, and instruments. This experience will run Monday through Thursday with two time options, 9AM – 10AM or 3PM – 4PM. The first week begins on June 29th, with additional weeks offered in July
Super Sprouts (ages 5 – 7)
This weekly class meets Wednesdays for 4 weeks and is a new addition to our Sprouting Melodies suite of early childhood classes. Whether you are a “graduate” of Sprouting Melodies, or checking it out for the first time, this class will engage your elementary schooler in a whole new way! We will continue to utilize familiar Sprouting Melodies songs and interventions while also incorporating basic music instruction. This integrated group will nurture leadership skills and support social and emotional interactions. We will spend time each week introducing adapted piano instruction to start learning the basic structures of music like rhythm, tempo, and dynamics. Children can use a keyboard or piano at home, easy to download apps on a phone or tablet, or play on a printed picture of keys to get started.
Techies (ages 10 – 13)
Is your tween looking to perfect their musical tech game, then this is the class to sign up for! Each week we will deep dive into digital apps such as Garage Band, GrooveMaker, etc to create music with others. Use your own device to explore lots of new ways to compose, improvise, and record songs using your iPhone, iPod or iPad. Recommended apps will be shared in advance so that everyone is ready to rock! Come explore the world of digital music-making in this virtual space with us!
Music Therapy Club (ages 3 – 7 and 8 – 12)
Music Therapy Club is a unique musical place where all children can be free to create and join in music making that is specifically tailored to assure engagement, joy and success for all. The focus of this group centers on providing a supportive, facilitated atmosphere for children who need music experiences that take full advantage of individual strengths while minimizing the impact of difficulties.
Junior Explorer and Explorer Summer Series begins Monday, June 29th. Other programs begin July 11th. Register for all of our programs online!
