Does your child want to get more involved in the arts this spring? Join Parks, Recreation and Marine for three brand new youth courses in dance and music!
Ukulele Kids: March 6
Ukulele is not only a fun instrument to play; it’s also a terrific way to prepare little hands for guitar later on. Students will learn basic chords, melodies, rhythm, and note reading in a fun and supportive atmosphere. Bring your own ukulele or rent one from us. This course is for children ages 5 to 7 years old, with a cost of $105 per student. Class takes place Tuesdays from 4 to 4:50pm, March 6 to April 24, at Jammin’ Music (4228 Atlantic Ave).
Youth Piano: March 7
Piano is an essential part of musical learning for any child. This beginning- level class is for children with little to no previous instruction. Students will be taught note reading, hand positions, proper finger technique, and simple melodies in a fun and supportive environment. Each child will learn on an individual electric keyboard. This course is for children ages 7 to 12 years old, with a cost of $105 per student with a $5 material fee. Class takes place Wednesdays from 4 to 5pm, March 7 to April 25, at Jammin’ Music (4228 Atlantic Ave).
Youth Break Dancing:
March 10 Break dancing is one of the most dynamic and entertaining forms of dance out there. This class is for kids with little to no dance experience.
