ARTISTIC DIRECTORS OF THE PROGRAM
Ms. Genviéve-Ashley Spitale
Dr. Audrey Cardany
Mr. Andrew Howell
The program is designed to introduce our youngest musicians to the world of music through fun activities designed just for them! We'll sing, move and play in a weekly program (8 Fridays) in Kent Hall.
Update Fall 2020: DUE TO COVID-19 this program is currently on hiatus
Previous experience in music is certainly not required of the children to participate.
Tuition is $100 per child for the 8-week semester.
Music & Movement
A pre-chorister program first offered in 2013, Music and Movement serves our youngest musicians in Kindergarten through 2nd Grade. Music is a key feature of early childhood, and children are natural music makers who delight in the musical world around them. In this class, young musicians experience a variety of music activities designed just for them! Children sing, move expressively, create, and play instruments. While building a repertoire of songs for everyday living, children will acquire music skills and knowledge that will enrich their lives far into the future. In addition to acquiring early music literacy skills, making music enhances children’s understanding of their world, aids in language development, and contributes to their social and emotional well-being.
