The Singing Giraffe Family Music Class is open to multi-generations. Either a parent or grand-parent or guardian should stay and participate if your children are younger than 6 years old. Then it is optional, but encouraged, since it is lots of fun for the whole family to learn and sing the songs. We will sing old and new tunes about serious and silly topics. Life includes both and music reflects life. Movement and sign language and a variety of rhythm instruments and props enliven our musical experiences.
We hold a fall and spring session that ends with a celebration. For new singers being part of the larger group increases confidence. For more confident singers there are opportunities for solos and small group numbers.
Notes from current participants (and parents)
"When someone makes awesome songs and teaches them really great, you just have to say thank you. Of course! So we will! (Sam )
The girls absolutely loved singing for you. I hope they join again next spring. I really love your "Love Makes a Family" song. My 4-year-old repeats that line all the time. It's been lovely hearing your songs sung around our house for the past few months. (Jeni, a mom)
Thank you thank you thank you for a beautiful concert
and for creating such a beautiful experience for our daughter.
She truly loves singing, and chorus is very exciting for her.
We look forward to seeing you again in march. (Jennifer, a mom)
My daughter had a blast and cannot wait to do it again. Thanks for giving the gift of music to her. It is such a special contribution to her life.
We were so impressed with Sunday's performance by your talented (and brave!) students, Dorothy. The kids were amazing - their enthusiasm was both beautiful and contagious. And they all knew the words!
It was equally wonderful to watch you in action. You are still an incredible teacher - thank you for continuing to share your joy with Valley children. (Jeanne and Earle Shumway)
