This weekly music series can focus on one instrument, or many! Guitar, Base, Drum, Keyboard or Piano. Or all of the above!
For the 4-week sampler series, kids will gain exposure to multiple instruments and sounds as they begin to explore music-making:
Week 1: Guitar
Week 2: Base
Week 3: Drums
Week 4: Keyboard/Piano (not provided)
Or, focus on a single instrument to dive deeper into its composition, musical history, and, of course, learning to play it. Layered throughout this series are lots of lessons on sound, sound waves, and how sound is generated. For example with guitar, kids will explore picking and strumming with one hand and fretting notes with the other. Whatever the instrument, they'll get to play in a freeform and exploratory way to gather a feel for how the instrument responds to their inputs.
There will also be listening activities to expose kids to iconic riffs they might have even heard before. Again with guitar as an example, "Smoke on the Water," "Seven Nation Army," Eye of the Tiger," and more. The goal is to inspire and get kids excited about all the sonic possibilities of an amazing piece of musical machinery. Best for ages 6+.
Gather a group of friends to turn up the fun, and the price goes down for everyone.
