Little Wing Music Classes Register

Little Wing is a general knowledge music class, not lessons in a specific instrument. It was developed by School of Rock to help preschool age children learn the fundamentals and basic concepts of music through interactive learning games and activities that engage their fine and gross motor skills. Little Wing students will learn real rock music from every decade. In addition, we introduce students to each of the main rock band instruments; guitar, base, drums, piano/keyboard and vocals, so they have an understanding of how the instruments produce sound and what makes them distinct.  *This program is a part of the preschool connection program. Students will be escorted to and from the classrooms.

The pre-ballet curriculum emphasizes the eight elements of movement: centering, gravity, balance, posture, gesture, rhythm, moving in space and breathing. These elements are not only the foundation of dance, but are also necessary skills as children develop physically and emotionally, in order to prepare for more formal and structured instruction. Pre-ballet is designed to encourage students to explore the elements of dance, with an emphasis on ballet, in a fun and nuturing environment, while setting the stage for future training.
