Music Classes With Teacher Linda
Due to Covid19, sadly in person music opportunities are extremely limited . Currently you can visit my youtube channel to see my Music Classes for Preschoolers online here. I'm very proud of this series of 11 classes offered for free and filmed on my drummers farm in Sebastopol, CA. These classes are filled with fun, active musical activities you can do from home, while also sending a positive message about friendship and features a very special episode on gender identity appropriate for young children. (Episode 10)
More about my background and in -person classes:
I have extensive teaching experience with children of all ages and children with special needs. I have my teaching credential, site supervisor permit for Early Childhood, Masters in multi-cultural education and 20 years of professional experience as a musician and teacher. This allows me much flexibility to cater my program to your specific group of children. My music classes range from a variety of open ended musical experiences to focused lessons teaching the different elements of music and most importantly, the joy of music, dancing and singing.
I will be playing my guitar to bring in songs that are not only for children, but songs that parents love too! This is not your typical "twinkle twinkle little star" music class. We will of course enjoy songs kids love to sing already, but then we will learn songs like Rocket Man by Elton John or Space Oddity by David Bowie. Along with Rock, and Folk, drumming is also a specialty of mine.
Whatever the class, we will be exploring rhythm, dynamics and melody. For children 3 years and older, I will teach them to sing together, read simple music, play a rhythm together and lead them through the songwriting process that culminates in a performance for parents if desired. Meaningful, age appropriate literacy activities are woven into the curriculum. For me the best part about music is that it brings people together and creates a feeling of connectedness and joy.
I charge $115 per hour and bring my own instruments. For younger children, class size is limited to 12 at a time for 30 minutes.
