Welcome to Opening Acts
Opening Acts is a great way for young children to get an introduction to music. Children, ages 2-5, and their parents/guardians attend weekly sessions on Saturdays. 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.
