Class Description: For the first half of the session, we will listen to different styles of music (both live and recorded) and talk about how these different pieces make us feel. Depending on the ages of the participants, they can also embody these musical feelings with dance movements. We will also talk about harmony, melody, and rhythm in simple and fun terms. For the second half of the session, participants will make their own instruments, like shakers, kazoos, and mini guitars, and then put their newfound knowledge to use!
