July is here! I hope everyone has a great 4th. Though this is the month of vacations, we’ll still be singing away our weekday mornings (Tuesdays and Wednesdays 10 AM and Wednesdays at 11:30 AM – Baby and Toddler Music in Fishtown, Kensington). We couldn’t help ourselves – its too often that people want to come by to see whats happening, or visit their old classroom for some familiar songs on their old day and time. So, if any classes are too small this month, we’ll still hold them as open music/open house (mixed with some story-time). That said, in case the summer schedule does change due to all the summer fun, please keep in touch with our calendar, or join our newsletter to receive email updates (NO CLASS 7th & 8th of JULY). You can also check out our Saturday dates for the summer.
Also, Joe and I are looking forward to having a special guest this month! Sarah Whitehead will make some visits to our baby music classes throughout July to accompany me with her cello. Sarah plays a variety of instruments (piano, guitar, violin, and cello), and we’ve been finding exciting ways to use music to express stories, feelings, and ideas. Sarah has also worked with some older kids in museums and art camps, and she’ll be teaching kids private lessons for cello in addition to our more family-style sing-along classes. Sarah is also constructing a group beginner cello class for the Fall for kids. The concept is based around classic beginner-cello pieces, which Sarah is adapting for a variety of age levels (5 and up). Group classes are really great for beginners, as kids can observe others at varying skill levels and learn from them. Kids can also get a feel for playing together, which puts a simple and wonky beginner melody into context with other parts. That can really liven up the music learning process. Also, group classes cut the price of lessons in half! So its a super affordable way for families to explore music lessons (we also have affordable kids cello rentals, so you don’t have to make a huge instrument investment). Classes still provide ample attention for each student, as we try not to go above 5 kids per class.
I’m pretty sure we’ll be having endless fun inventing creative ways to engage kids with music in the coming months! Feel free to contact us to come visit and see what we’re about.
