How should your child pick the “right” musical instrument? When’s the right time to start? What if your child likes to sing and dance? What if they want to do it all!?! The Music Box provides an introduction to the world of music with hands-on explorations of different instruments, songs, musical styles, and some music basics to help them discover the right “fit”.
Each week you will be introduced to a new song from our Music Box CD (ranging from spirituals, folk, jazz, bluegrass and more) followed by a hands-on introduction to a new instrument led by a Shedd Faculty member. Each session will be presented in a multi-dimensional context of film, history, geography, nature, and language to make every musical workshop even richer, more educational and fun! With every musical discovery, your child grows one step closer to a lifetime of music making and informed music listening. Parents/grandparents are strongly encouraged to attend the class as well to support the child’s exploration.
Each Music Box session stands by itself and every session is different. Drop-ins are welcome and Music Box tickets may be purchased when you arrive. We also sell Music Box tickets in discounted packs of 10 which are transferable and may be used for any Music Box any time. You can also register for the entire term for a greater discount.
