Music for Moms and Dads
Learn how to support your budding musician at home by creating an environment of shared family learning.  By the end of this course, students will be able to support their children’s study of music in a positive manner.  Students will also have gained the necessary tools to make educated decisions about their child’s future endeavors within the world of music.

 

Music Through the Ages
Travel through time and learn t appreciate music from a new and expanded perspective.  Who, where, and why?  These are the questions that we will answer during our exploration of music from the free melody of Gregorian Chant to the new found emotion of the Romantic and Impressionist periods, and finally the evolution of new age and world music.  By the end of this course, students will be able to expand their recreational music listening to include different styles and repertoire from different periods of history.

 

What are Music Festivals, and Should my Child be Participating?
What is all of this talk about festival entries and deadlines?  We will demystify the whole process.  How do I sing my child up?  What will they need to do to be prepared?  What should they play?  What should they wear?  What should I do to help my child with performance anxiety?  Why do they always schedule them during the day?  What are the benefits of my child participating?
