Summer Musical Theater Camp
For one week every summer we have a Musical Theater Camp for children age 7-12 years of age. The children create a production from the ground up by painting scenery, making costumes, learning stage direction, dialogue, songs and choreographed dances. We put on the show Friday evening for family and friends at a local retirement home.
It is a highlight of summer session.
Welcome to Sonoma County Children's Music! We are Sonoma County's favorite music program for young children and have been in Santa Rosa since 1997.
We believe that every child is musical and that music classes for children should be about nurturing the whole child and developing their passion for music making. All our classes focus on the process and joy of making music while nurturing the growth of the whole child. Our developmentally based curricula enhances fine motor, gross motor, cognitive, social, emotional, and musical growth.
Our licensed instructors have extensive training in child development along with their expertise as music educators. They create a relaxed and warm atmosphere in the classroom that is most conducive to learning. Parents are active participants in our programs and home practice is fun with the exceptional home materials that each child receives. Enrolled students and their families receive other benefits such as use of our lending library, free admission to workshops, school parties and special events, priority registration and visits from guest musicians each semester.
Our cornerstone early childhood curricula is Kindermusik, the world's leading music and movement curricula for children. We have the largest Kindermusik program in Northern California with classes for every age group. We have chosen Kindermusik over all the other early childhood curricula on the market because we have found it to be the most developmentally based, comprehensive music program with the highest quality materials available. Kindermusik offers 7 years of curricula that grow with the child from infancy to elementary school. You can view a video clip if you would like to see part of an actual class or visit one of our class photo albums on facebook.
As the child reaches elementary school age he or she is cognitively and emotionally ready for more in-depth instruction in specific areas of study. We offer a variety of instrument, voice, and summer curricula appropriate for this age group.
