Genrerama Music Class!
Back (virtually) by popular demand! Genrerama Music Class is offered at GIGIL! Instructed by Cherie Sola, this music class focuses on engaging children with all aspects of music in a fun and accessible way. A mixture of original songs and classics are used to encourage children to sing, move, and play along. The class offers the opportunity to tell stories and understand simple music theory through movement, sounds, and instruments. As repetition is important for young children, each class starts with the “Hello, Bonjour” song and ends with the “Goodbye, Goodbye” song. All classes include a time for free dance and a jam session. This class is tailored for toddlers up to 4 years old.
