clap for classicsClap for Classics

If your little one loves nature and music, this is the class for you! We are happy to bring back this amazing program for our “Sprouter” crowd in partnership with Clap for Classics, based out of Madison, AL.

Schedule:

August 9
August 23
September 6
September 20
October 4
October 18

During each class children (ages 2-5) and their parents will be introduced to foundational musical concepts as we will explore where nature and music intersect. We will listen to classical music inspired by nature, sing, dance, and play instruments. These experiences lay a foundation for children to continue studying and appreciating music and nature throughout their lives.

Chantal Wilkinson is a Madison resident, mother of three young children, a nurse, and a life-long musician. She started a life of music at age five in a community choir called “Music Makers” and went on to performing in choirs internationally and with professional organizations, such as the Los Angeles Opera. She volunteers teaching music to toddlers in her church and loves singing, dancing and laughing with her own children, nieces, and nephews.

Class size is limited so sign up early!

Location: All Clap for Classics! sessions will meet in the Anderson Education Center Classroom and then go outside for the remainder of the class. Classes will be held inside if the weather requires it.

Time: 10:00 am – 11:00 am

Age: 2-5 (parent and child class)

$8 for the first child, $5 for each additional sibling in the same family.
