DRUM CIRCLE CLASSES
The next step in musical development for children between the ages of 4 and 7
Do you feel like your child is stuck between being too old for circle time music classes and too young for formal lessons? We have developed our drum circle curriculum to fill this gap. Our classes allow kids to build on the musical momentum started in City Stomp family classes and propel children towards higher musical learning. We begin the process of teaching percussion fundamentals in a comfortable, diverse atmosphere that focuses on learning through fun in order to retain interest for a growing musical mind.
Each child will have a hand drum to use during class. A new rhythmic concept or rudiment will be taught each week. There will be 3 mini lessons in each class interspersed with large movement, dancing and drum improvisation. Each 10 week term will focus on different cultural styles of drumming like African and Latin.
Classes are taught by Ethan Meyer. Ethan is an accomplished musician in African, Latin, Jazz and Rock styles. Ethan brings his drum expertise as well as his early childhood teaching experience to make this class unlike any other music class offered.
Please see the "schedule" and "sign-up" pages to find out when the class is offered and cost for the current term.
