|The Community Music Program offers lessons for adults and pre-school children|
The UND Community Music Program is again offering voice lessons for beginners to adults. The lessons are scheduled at the convenience of the student and instructor.
Musiktanz classes for ages 15 months to 5 1/2 begin Sept. 14 in the Hughes Fine Arts Center, room 258. Musiktanz is a curriculum developed by Lorna Lutz Heyge, an internationally recognized author and early childhood music educator. She is the founder of Kindermusik and author of the early childhood curriculum, "Cycle of Seasons." In the Musiktanz program the teacher acts as a role model to assist the parents/care givers in working musically with their children. The parents/care givers attend the children's lessons and participate with them in classes comprised of a variety of developmentally appropriate musical activities including singing, moving, playing, creating, and listening. Emphasis in these classes is on having fun while building musical skills and developing a love of music. Moreover, research has shown that participation in such programs may improve skills tied to academic success as well.
Level I (Ages 15 months - 3 years) meets at 6 p.m. on Monday nights.
Level II (Ages 3 years - kindergarten) meets at 6:30 p.m. on Monday nights.
Both classes meet for half an hour, ten times during the semester. They are taught by an experienced music teacher. Cost for each level is $65 per semester.
