AFTER SCHOOL & WEEKEND PROGRAM

For K - 5th Grade

Sept 9th 2019 - June 19th 2020

SONGLAB

Learning The Language of Music Through Song

New for 2019-20 School Year!

THE AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM IS NOW "SONGLAB"

Our new and improved SONGLAB after school program is better than ever this year! We have created an 'advanced' focus for returning students that will keep them engaged and inspired, and have a lot of new equipment, projects, and experiences planned for all of the kids to enjoy this year! 

 

RETURNING STUDENTS

Our returning students will be continuing their exploration of all things music and creativity, but with more advanced projects that will build upon and expand what they learned last year with us.  

 

SOMETHING NEW FOR EVERYONE

We have new ideas for all of the kids to explore, including basic filmmaking and film scoring; podcasting and audio story telling; and very cool audio experiments using field recordings, geo-located audio, and more!

In The Key Lab

Our Key Lab group piano classroom is where your budding keyboardist will learn to read, write, and play music through fun activities, games, and individual and group performance exercises. We use original material and traditional pieces in our thoroughly modern group piano lab for a unique and exciting learning experience each week.

 

Although our after school program does not require kids to practice at home, parents who want their kids to put in extra time on their pieces can download pdf files of new pieces as they are introduced at our blog. We also have a pdf file of suggested home practice tips to ensure your child is getting the most out of our program!

In The Band Room

Our band classroom offers students the chance to learn valuable performance, composition, and arranging skills that will allow them to share the joy and excitement of making music with their peers. Kids will get a chance to play keyboards, bass, drums, guitar, and sing.

Our non-competitive band program allows kids to explore and create in a supportive environment, teaching students to work together using songs from our curriculum, songs written by the students, and cover songs by their favorite artists. Your kids will come away from their class each week inspired and empowered to create and perform with passion and skill!

In The Tech Lab

Our Tech Lab classroom opens up the world of composition, music production, and basic filmmaking techniques using a wide variety of fun, engaging apps including Garageband, Tenuto, iMovie, and Luma Fusion. Projects in this classroom reinforce core skills, and also teach children valuable lessons in how to manage projects from conception to completion. 

Student projects are presented at our awesome Dec and June listening parties, and we also share student pieces to our blog and various social media pages.

 

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

 

SONGLAB is the perfect 2 hour after school program for families with children ages 5-12 who are looking for a unique, low-pressure, and fun music education experience! 

 

Our dynamic music program allows children to use our three modern music education classrooms to learn about the keyboard, music theory, and music composition and production; and to gain experience in group composition and performance using keyboards, guitar, bass, drums, vocals, and electronic & computer based live performance techniques.  

 

Due to our low student/teacher ratio (3 teachers, maximum of 15 students per day), we can take students of different ages/skill levels on the same day, placing them in small, age/level appropriate groups so that they are not held back or in over their head. No matter what skill level your child is at, we will provide a fun, educational, and inspiring experience for them each week!
