for Early Learners
Bring your little one and your ukulele for this very fun mixed ages and abilities music group! Kids can choose to listen and observe, help their caregiver strum the ukulele, or be active participants while singing, dancing, and playing their own instruments. All skill levels are welcome in this class! Come have fun with your child and show them that you can learn a new skill too!
Throughout the 10 week series caregivers will learn the basics of tuning their ukulele, playing a 3 chord progression (C, F, G), and basic strumming patterns. Caregivers will receive a packet of ukulele songs and materials.
Caregiver to gain confidence in the basics of playing the ukulele
Child to explore music in a nurturing musical community
Strengthen the musical bond and relationship of the caregiver and child

Join us for this mixed aged music book club where we will use 5 children's books as our themes for the class. Children and adults will be active participants through instrument play, song, movement, exploration of props, and literature! Children will gain skills in listening comprehension, conceptual knowledge of written and spoken/sung words, and develop a positive relationship with books. The best part is kids will take the books home to keep!
