Fall 2013 Classes
Clef and Canvas
Have you ever wondered where music came from and how it evolved over thousands of years? Are you an art lover, but don't know much about how it has change throughout history? Join us for a music and art appreciation/history course that will blow your mind and entice you to listen to things you have never heard before and look at art in ways you never thought possible. Instructed by Mike Walker, Katie Dukes, and Brittany Davis, this class is designed to introduce you to a wide spectrum of musical genres and their artistic counterparts. During each and every lesson we discuss how music and art evolved and interacted over time. Topics will include not only classic works, but will also venture into the exciting world of modern expression. An optional community field trip opportunity will also enrich this learning experience by enabling students to take the lessons out of the classroom, and into the real world of art and music!
*All class field trips are optional. Concert tickets and travel expenses are not included in class price!

Music, Movement, and Performance for Kids
Music and Motion is a chance for the younger artist from ages 7-8 to explore rhythm and music in a way that is creative, engaging, and physical. Students will learn to pick apart a piece of music, listen to specific elements and instruments, and find ways to embody what we hear through movement. We'll work as a team to incorporate all these elements into a short performance that's sure to look nothing like any school play you've ever seen. Having a music or dance background is not at all required. By actively listening to music and putting findings into motion, students will advance their analytical skills, team working skills, creativity and overall health and wellness.
