Enrollment is being accepted now for three fall Kindermusik classes for children from birth through age 7 and their parents.
The program is based on research demonstrating the benefits of music at each stage of a child’s development, says instructor Amy Levin.
The “Our Time” for kids ages 18 months to 3 years starts Sunday, Aug. 28, from 4:30 to 5:15 p.m. and meets at a private home in South Davis. The course fee is $95 for a six-week session.
The “Family Time” class brings together parents and children of all ages. The session starts Thursday, Oct. 20, from 6:30 to 7:15 p.m. and runs for five weeks. The course fee is costs $75 plus $55 for a home kit, which will be reused in the second and third sessions.
The “Young Child” class for kids ages 4 1/2 to 7 will start in September as soon as a minimum of six children sign up. Participants will learn to play the glockenspiel. The fee is $75 for instrument and materials plus $95 for each five-week session (total of 15 weeks).
Both the “Family Time” and “Young Child” classes will meet at Congregation Begt Haverim, 1715 Anderson Road in Davis.
Discounts are available for siblings and referrals to friends. A portion of the money from these classes will be used to fund the music classes at the Mustard Seed School for homeless children at the Loaves & Fishers shelter in Sacramento.
