Opening Acts is a great way for young children to get an introduction to music. Children, ages 2-5, and their parents/guardians will attend weekly virtual sessions on Saturdays from 12-12:30pm. Together, children and their families will experience music by singing, dancing, and participating in rhythmic and movement activities aimed at developing musical internalization and expression. In addition to being a fun activity for children, this class helps prepare them for enrollment in private lessons by introducing them to different ways of music-making and fostering a sense of musical creativity. Summer Session 2020 will be comprised of seven 30-minute class sessions via Zoom, and the cost for the semester is $70 per child.
