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”.
Maximum enrollment: 10
There are 2 Music Box sessions each week (Mon/Wed or Tue/Thu), each 1 hour long. Parents/grandparents are strongly encouraged to attend the class as well to support the child’s exploration.
Each 1 hour Music Box session (there are 2 per week) introduces students 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.
This year, The Shedd is offering three different class options for The Music Box! Each class will meet multiple times per week to offer an enriching music experience. The class options are as follows:

The Music Box - Mon/Wed from 11:00am-Noon (parents please attend too!)
The Music Box - Tue/Thu from 4:00pm-5:00pm (parents please attend too!)
Music Box Plus - Mon/Wed/Fri from 3:00-5:00 (parents encouraged, but not required)
