Kids Band: A class of Music & Self-Expression
Kids feel like rock stars while their literacy improves and confidence soars.
Music activities: Kids create & write lyrics, sing & record songs and work together to create rhythms and rhymes on the instruments and microphones. The Kids Band has monthly performance opportunities to rock out including Kids Open Mic and community performances.
Self-Expression activities: Kids Yoga & Exercise, dancing, costumes, skits, and Recycled Art. The Self-Expression portion of the class is planned according to the themes of the day and songs the kids are creating.
Recycled Art The song Reduce! Reuse! Recycle! describes it best when the kids sing “use old stuff again.” Recycled Art teaches kids to reduce waste, conserve resources and use our imaginations to transform trash into treasure. Community Rocks! uses reused, recycled and environmentally-friendly art supplies to create new and fabulous up-cycled art.
Kids TOUR Band: WE WORK TOGETHER, WE ROCK!
The Kids TOUR Band is the Kids Band and much more. Children and teens learn microphone technique and how to set up a P.A. system for live shows. In addition, there is an equal emphasis on “behind the scenes” of the music business including; running the sound board, promoting shows and organizing events. Putting it all to the test, the TOUR band hosts various Kids Open Mic Nights throughout the year. They set up, clean up, perform and are the “sound engineers” for the night.
The Kids TOUR Band requires an audition and interview. Though talent is important, acceptance into the band has less to do with talent and more to do with enthusiasm and dedication. Lead by Sara O’Brien, the band “tours” to festivals and events throughout the tri-state area. In addition to performing original songs and dances, the TOUR Band kids become involved in community service and outreach projects.
