  • Music with Julie

    Throughout the week, children will use different instrument, props, and games to help learn basics of rhythm and melody. As we sing, dance, drum, and shake, we will focus on various aspects of music, ie. different types of notes, dynamics, tempos, songwriting, etc. This will be a time to have fun, and to be silly and creative through music making. At the end of the week, the group will have the opportunity to show the rest of the program a song, game, or musical story.
