Fire up your child's imagination in this musical storytelling experience led by musician and songwriter Karlyn DeSteno! As a group, taking turns, students will invent an original story, then translate parts of the story into musical sound using instruments or sound-making household items. This class hones cooperation, focus, creativity, imagination, and builds basic musical and verbal skills.
- Bring any musical instrument on which the student can easily make a sound (even if they do not "know how" to play the instrument) -- for example, a ukulele, keyboard, or toy xylophone. If an instrument is not available, bring any sound-making household object, such as a metal pot and a spoon, metal silverware that can be banged together, a box that can be played like a drum, etc.
