YOUTH MUSIC

______________

Christ Chapel offers music programs for children ages 0 months through 12th grade. If your children have an avid interest in music, performing, singing or more, we’d love to have them be a part of the fun.

Oh sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done marvelous things!

Psalm 98:1

Baby Class: Newborn to 16 months:  Designed for parents and their babies to take together, these weekly classes help you learn how to play musically with your baby. Each class features bouncing and rocking songs, wiggle and peek-a-boo games, and other fun activities for the two of you. A take-home music kit lets you continue the fun with the Musikgarten’s outstanding recorded music, a parent guidebook along with rhythm sticks, a soft wooden rattle, and colorful scarf.
Musikgarten for babies:

  • Increases your baby’s curiosity about music
  • Develops listening skills and a sense of beat
  • Establishes a foundation for singing and musical thought
  • Helps you form a closer bond with your baby
  • Gives you and your baby a chance to interact with other parents and babies

Family Music for Mixed Ages:  Baby through 4 years old. This four-semester program is designed for all ages of preschool children and their grownups to experience the joy of music making together. It will nurture your child’s musical aptitude and listening abilities, while developing key skills that are vital for all learning: listening, following directions, impulse control, communication, and positive social interaction.

In each 30 minute weekly class, kid friendly folk songs help to develop your child’s language, singing, dancing, and listening skills. They’ll also experience a variety of simple instruments and like all Musikgarten courses, it will enhance your child’s social, emotional, intellectual and physical development, while building a foundation for future music proficiency.  That’s important for you to know, but for your child, it’s all about the pure fun of music and movement shared with you!

Cycles Class: This class is for children 3 to 5 years old who can manage longer listening time and more complex physical movement. They will explore musically one of the four seasons each semester and be introduced to eight new animals each season through songs, pictures, listening and mini-discussions. In this class we begin to transfer their early experience of rhythm and tonal patterns to instrument time with the addition of more intricate rhythm and tonal patterns using a wider variety of percussion instruments.  Each child will have opportunities every semester to play fun impromptu instrumental solos.
