ROCKPORT, Maine — Music Together Big Kids comes to Bay Chamber Community Music School. Calling all 5, 6, 7 year olds and the grownups who love them. Bay Chamber Community Music School is offering a new class this spring. Come experience it for yourself at our Music Together Big Kids free demo class on March 28 at 3:30 p.m. and learn about the changing musical needs of your growing child! Parents are required to attend the sample class. Space is limited, call 236-2823 to reserve space for the demo today.

Music Together Big Kids is a 60-minute class geared to the interests and abilities of 5, 6, and 7 year-olds. The program blends the elements of Music Together that parents and children love with new activities, skills, and challenges that are developmentally appropriate for this age group. Big Kids classes lay the foundation for Basic Music Literacy, complementing music instruction in school or instrument lessons, and leading to a lifetime of joyful music-making. The curriculum includes solfège, solos and ensembles, folk dances, harmony singing, vocal development, and drumming. In a safe, fun environment, your child can experiment with new activities like conducting and improvisation, story songs, and game songs.

Spring classes begin April 4 or April 7 on Wednesday from 3:30-4:30 p.m. or Saturday from 1 to 2 p.m. Classes run for 10 weeks and the cost is $175 (all materials included) $145 for a second sibling. Scholarships available.

Parent attendance is welcome but not required (except for the first and last class- parent/caregiver must attend). Each family receives a Big Kids songbook, CD, solfège cards, and HomePlay activities, so that the entire family can continue the fun and learning at home and parents can stay connected with what the child is learning in class.
