Earth Jams offerings

Happy almost winter, music friends. I hope you are faring well these dark days (interpret that as you like).

I wanted to tell you about some fun musical opportunities for your kiddos. First off, the new Music Together semester begins the week of January 2nd. You can sign up here. This is a great class for parents of young ones (infant-preschooler) who are looking for a doorway into the world of making music with your kids. It is a fantastic curriculum. I have been teaching it for over 10 years, and I never want to stop, because it is so much fun. You’ll learn some great songs and also how to make up your own little ditties to keep the rhythm flowing through your life at home.

And here’s a great chance for you home school families to bring some music into the lives of your students. This is a Tuesday class from 10:30-11:30 at the Brunswick Curtis Memorial Library in which we learn about music through singing together, songwriting, listening to music, dancing, art work, eurithmy, and playing rhythm instruments. Find out more about the class and RSVP here.
