We all know a drummer who's always tapping a beat, a horn player who repeatedly hums bits of their latest piece, or a piano player who quickly dances their fingers across any surface, imagining they are playing the keys. Once music has entered the mind and soul, it never leaves, and that's the magic. Which is why it's such great news that the Thurnauer School of Music at Kaplen JCC on the Palisades is opening their doors for the Fall 2022 semester! Classes begin on Monday, September 12th and registration is ongoing, so there's no need to wait to start your kids' lifelong musical journey. Get a preview and join them on Sunday, September 11th for their community-wide Expo. There will be activities for all, food, refreshments and hands-on concierge registration services.
Thurnauer's top-notch educators' vast knowledge and passion for music education ignites the love of music in their students, whether they're virtual or in-person. According to Early Childhood Director Emma Brondolo, "In our signature Musikgarten classes for children ages 3 months-7 years, we've found that our classes give children feelings of connection and joy. We sing songs, move to music, play musical games together, and listen to exciting musical stories." And who couldn't use a huge dose of that kind of fun right about now?
In addition to their options of in-person and virtual, this fall they've also introduced tons of super-fun new classes for young kids. There's Instrument Exploration! Young Drummers, Ukulele Strummers, and several of Musikgarten's trademark, highly successful early childhood music classes. Looking for a more social after-school option? Semi-Private Lessons are the perfect way for kids to hang out with their buddies while learning a new skill – and the hefty discount doesn't hurt either. For more information, or to register for one of their dynamic, forward-thinking classes, please visit the Thurnauer School of Music website.
