Music Play for Beginners


Music Play for Beginners is a fun, interactive group classes for 2 to 4-year olds that covers the elements of music and serves as a foundation for beginning private lessons on any instrument. This is a general music class that will cover topics such as rhythm, tempo, dynamics, types of instruments and more!

At every session of the Music Play Class students will explore music through movement, singing and playing instruments such as the bells, shakers and drums; while receiving the added benefits of participating in making music as a group. Through this class students will practice valuable skills such as teamwork, following directions and communication that will carry over into their time at school and other activities.

Some highlights of Spring 2016’s Music Play Class included an instrument zoo where students were able to listen to and handle instruments from the string, woodwind and percussion families, singing and dancing to silly songs, and a crafts day where students had the opportunity to make and take home their own instruments. Music Play for Beginners is an enrichment class that will give students a well-rounded introduction to music and a head start on beginning private music lessons.

Fiddle (String) for Beginners Class


Music Authority’s Saturday Fiddling Group Classes are an exciting opportunity for strings students to learn new styles of music and perform in a musical ensemble! No prior playing experience is required. Bring your instrument; however, if you don’t have one let us know and we will find one for you or recommend places you can get an instrument fom. Violinists, violists and cellists of all ages are welcome. This class will give students the valuable experience of making music with their peers while improving their playing technique and exposing them to styles of music not typically covered in private lessons; such as Celtic music, Old Time, Bluegrass and Jazz. More advanced students will also practice soloing and improvisation.

Each session of the Fiddling Class will include fun music related group activities and preparation for a performance on the last day of class. Students will be grouped by age and level of experience with activities and musical selections planned accordingly. Suzuki Certified violin instructor Veronica Cieri will coach beginning students on the basics of violin playing while teaching more advanced students the tunes and riffs that are the basis of fiddling. Students at all levels will be encouraged to learn by ear with the goal of helping students play with confidence and spontaneity.
