It’s time to play!  We’ll go on pretend musical trips to the park, ride a train and play on the playground. We’ll create a musical playground story with the songs and music we learn from our class time.  We’ll also enjoy playing instruments while working with a partner in our instrumental medley.

Get ready for an adventure in “Out and About”.  In our second unit we’ll use our imaginations to visit the mountains and the beach.  Children will practice their gross motor skills as they ride bikes, hike in the mountains, scuttle like crabs, and fly like seagulls!  Singing, instrument play and movement all bring this musical unit of learning to life.

Kindermusik (Mondays) is at capacity. Please email Allen (activities@stjamesatlanta.org) to be added to the waiting list.

KINDERMUSIK
Thursdays: $255 for 15 Weeks
Times: 1:00-2:00
Starts: January 17, Ends: May 9
Off: March 28, April 4

Welcome to “Feel the Music”.  Music is a powerful trigger for emotions.  Young children are still learning to feel and express their emotions. We explore how music can stir emotions in each of us.   We begin by using facial expressions as they relate to music and build up to listening to and engaging in many types of music.

There is a magic to be found in those 88 keys.  In “All Keyed Up” we explore staccato and legato through movement, instrument play and musical notions (notes on the staff).  This semester will help us understand different keyboards: piano, harpsichord, synthesizer and pipe organ.  We will also continue learning and playing parts of songs on the piano.

Please email Allen Whittaker (activities@stjamesatlanta.org) to check on class availability.

This class is a structured program designed for the early development of ballet and movement. It precisely meets the needs and limitations of preschoolers by providing a carefully paced sequence of exercises to develop physical conditioning with poise and grace. Since children naturally respond to music and movement, the activities are presented through music. Children learn self- discipline, listening and coordination skills, left and right discrimination, patterns in movement and pre-ballet. Class includes a recital in May. To sign up for Valet for Pre-Ballet see classes offered through St. James UMC!

Wednesdays: $366 for 16 Weeks
Times: 12:15-1:00
Ages: 3-5
Starts: January 16, Ends: May 8
Off: April 3

Tap Ballet is the perfect combination class with 20 minutes of tap and 25 minutes of ballet. Since ballet is the basis for all dance technique, the combinations of both work hand in hand. The technical training is taught through ballet, which in turn helps teach the proper shifting of weight and patterns in movement for tap. Since children naturally respond to music and movement, all of the activities are executed to fun music. Class includes recital in May. Check out the two Ballet Valet options offered (depending upon preschool dismissal time) by looking at the classes offered through St. James UMC!
