Summer 2022: Music & Movement Sampler Classes

Summer Music & Movement Sampler Classes are a great way to experience Pakachoag’s popular school-year Music Together program; or simply tag on some summer fun!  The 5-week early childhood session is designed to teach the way young children learn: through play.  Multiple date, time, and location options are provided below.

All Music & Movement classes will be in-person and indoors for Summer 2022.

  1. More About Summer Samplers

    During each music class, the teacher will lead music activities for the whole family to sing, play, and jam along.  The teacher will show families how to make everyday items like dish towels, pots, and stuffies into musical props.  Each class is designed as an active music-making experience for little ones and their grownups.

    Parent participation is THE key, as the adult serves as the child’s role model.

    Summer Samplers provide a glimpse of the school-year Music Together program.  Children explore and develop pitch, through singing, and rhythm, through movement.  Parents serve as role models through their participation.  Classes are designed to be fun and are based on a weekly curriculum that encourages music growth, exploration, and memory development through repetition of songs and activities.

    Unlike the school year program, a song book, CD and learning guide are not provided as part of this shorter summer program.

  2. Ages

    All classes are appropriate for children aged birth through five years; an older class is also available upon request for children with and without special needs.

  3. Special Learners Class

    A Special Learners Online class designed for children 6-10 years old with special learning needs will be held if minimum enrollment is met.  Groups interested in scheduling a class for a Special Learners pod must have at least five families registered to run.

    Siblings of any age are welcome to attend with a special learner without any additional tuition.

    Please email info@pakmusic.org if interested.
