Description

Let’s Make Music
“To you, O Lord, I will make music.” Psalm 100:1. In this class, students will discover and experience various forms of music. Singing in rounds, singing to an accompaniment track, playing with bells, being part of a stomp band, learning how to use good quality rhythm instruments in a musical piece, learning sign language to some songs, and learning basic chords on the ukulele. (Children will need to bring their own ukulele. These will not be needed until later in the session.) This is for kids at all levels of music experience and the goal is to have fun making music.
