Early Childhood Virtual Summer Experiences

Come join us this summer for a virtual music class experience with the Westminster Conservatory of Music Early Childhood Program!  Our virtual classes will extend for six weeks over the summer, from the week of July 6th - August 14th.  

Our classes will consist of 3 components:

  1. Zoom classes twice a week where we will learn new songs, interact with other children, and engage with Guest Musicians.  All Zoom classes are recorded, inviting the children to rewatch the classes and also allowing children who are unable to attend that specific class to still be included in the learning experience.** 
  2. Video content and interactive activities utilizing the online platform Seesaw.  Seesaw takes student’s learning beyond just watching a video and allows them to interact with both the lessons and teacher to demonstrate their creativity and engagement with the content.  View our introductory video for more about this child-friendly platform.
  3. Weekly emails (or in some cases, “snail mail”), providing each student with hands-on projects and manipulatives to enhance their learning.

This virtual experience is very flexible for families and is a perfect fit for busy summer schedules. Children can participate at their own pace and they can also repeat their favorite activities. Best of all, since the only requirement is a device with internet access, children can be happily engaged in a fun musical activity virtually anywhere - even in those long “social distancing” wait lines.  Read more about the specific classes offered below:

Introduction to Stepping Tones

For children ages 3 ½ - 4 ½ (students should be minimum age of 3 ½ by 9/15/20)

Music is everywhere!  We will be exploring ways to create music using our voices, create rhythms using items found around our house and backyard, and playing music using our rhythm instrument kit (included with the materials fee).  Throughout the 6 weeks, students will be actively engaged in music creation through songs, stories, and rhymes.

Program Costs

Tuition fee for 6 weeks: $108

Materials fee:  $35 

**Zoom classes will be conducted on Rider’s Pro Zoom platform which has been configured especially for educators with a secure-entry protocol and utilizing password encrypted invitations to all online events.
