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, and are open to children ages 3 ½ through incoming 2nd graders.
Our classes will consist of 3 components:
- 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.**
- 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.
- 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.
