Show classes for:
Creative Music Kids' Club

 This is a 4 week program to help you kickstart your imagination with music.   Twice a week, after a 30 minute interactive Zoom class with Amy, you and your children will have new ideas to enjoy music at home.  Each week you'll be asked to bring 3 simple home materials  (such as a stuffed animal, a blanket or scarf, a sock, spoons....) to increase the fun!  You will also get access to a private group Facebook page for families enrolled, and be able to access videos created by Amy.  These video experiences will be short, because music for children should not be a spectator sport!  You will be singing, dancing, creating and playing in your home all through the week!  Many instruments, puppets, your classmates' creations and much more as we share musical ideas and activities.  Parents and caregivers are important to the development of a love for music, and are expected to participate with the child in class.   REGISTER
