Start the new year off right by learning all about Hoff-Barthelson Music School’s Early Childhood Program. Children ages 6 months to 5 years and their adults are invited to join in the fun of a music and movement class at 10:30 am, followed by a brief Q & A with faculty, and a reception during which you can socialize with other families. In the event of snow, the Open House will be held the following Friday, January 24, 2020 at the same time. Weekly classes incorporate exercises and games that involve singing, moving, improvising, and using small percussion instruments to promote keen inner hearing and rhythmic sensitivity. Props such as colorful balls, hoops, scarves, and puppets animate musical concepts and engage the senses and imagination. Even the very youngest children develop focus, spatial awareness, fine and gross motor skills, social skills, and the ability to work with others—all while having fun. For families interested in taking the first steps in learning to play an instrument, Piano Together (group piano classes) Little Pipers Recorder Classes, Suzuki Pre-Twinkler for Violin and Beginning Ukulele are hands-on classes for older threes and up. Classes are available for parents/caregivers with their children as well as in a “drop-off” format for children who enjoy attending music class independently.
