Explore is an introductory music class for kids from ages 4-5. The goal is to teach kids music fundamentals like rhythm and melody while helping to foster their love of music and spark their creativity. Each month of the class focuses on a musical project such as learning to play a new song as a band, songwriting, recording and looping, and more.
Emerging Artists I is for students, ages 6 and 7, who are excited to explore the instruments that we offer and perform as a band. Students will come together for weekly, hour-long rehearsals that will include lessons in foundational musicianship skills including rhythm, melody and the basics of drums, vocals, keys, and guitar.
Emerging Artists are young musicians on the rise, eager to hit the stage and perform. This program is for kids 8-10 who’ve had a few months of private lessons or experience in Emerging Artists I and have some basic fundamental skills on either guitar, bass, drums, keys, or voice. The goal is for kids to use these new skills and work together as a band to put on an amazing show, and make giant personal strides in the process.
