ArtsEast will offer three Kindermusik classes this fall. The classes, taught by Joanne Bump are an excellent opportunity for parents to introduce their young children to music.
Two classes, Wiggle & Grow and Laugh & Learn, will begin Monday, September 9. Sessions are held in the Community School of the Arts Building, 6th Street and “L” Avenue across from the La Grande Police Station.
Wiggle & Grow will be from 10 – 10:45 AM. It’s for ages 1 – 2 and parent participation is required. Along with singing, dancing and playing musical instruments, children will develop abilities such as gross and fine motor skills, turn taking, social skills, and active listening.
Laugh & Learn is for ages 2-4 and will be held from 11 AM – Noon. It will include age-appropriate activities that introduce early music concepts and foster independence, social and emotional skills, language growth, and self-control. Parents may stay for the class or join for the final 10 minutes.
Tuition for Wiggle & Grow and Laugh & Learn are $49.95 a month, materials included.
Keys for Kids is for 5 – 7 year olds and will be held on Mondays from 3:45 – 4:00 PM, September 16 – November 18. Children will be introduced to the piano through musical games and exercises including rhythm, musicality, and note reading. Tuition is $120 for returning students and $140 for new students, materials included.
Parents may register the first day of class or at the ArtsEast office located in the Community School of the Arts Building. Find additional information and a class application here.
