Ginny Latts, Instructor
Join us for active learning in this theory class for young musicians! Sing, move, listen, create, read and write music, play instruments, learn together in a small ensemble setting.
Eurhythmics is a study of music through movement and is based on the interaction of ear, mind, and body. Students develop a knowledge of note-reading, solfège, music theory fundamentals, rhythmic skills, ear training, introduction to instruments, repertoire, and creativity.
Young students who've already started private instrumental lessons or are planning to start lessons will benefit from joining this active theory class. Students learn the fundamental concepts of music theory while developing musicianship and leadership skills, ensemble awareness, and creativity. The sequence of classes is taught through games, problem solving, and improvisations. Take this class prior to and concurrently with private instrumental instruction, as a theory component.
