Class Descriptions

Little Folkies Music Class

Little Folkies is a folk music class for children ages 0-5 and their grown-ups. The classes are mixed ages with babies, toddlers preschoolers, parents, grandparents and caregivers all getting together every week and singing together like one big family! After the first few weeks the students gets more and more comfortable and familiar with the music and by the end of the semester everyone is singing along and doing the movement to the songs. Even the little ones join in and although some may be shy in class they’ll usually sing the songs like nobody’s watching in the comfort of their home. The sound of everyone's voices ringing together and the sweet, gentle and simple songs with lyrics easy enough for baby and grandma to sing along to is soothing to the child and creates positive early musical memories for them which they’ll carry with them throughout their life. Here at Little Folkies we share the knowledge that music is at the core of every human being, and we believe that all children should experience genuine, heart felt, acoustic music making which will increase their musical confidence and give them a healthy relationship to music right from the start.

Little Folkies Big Kid Ukulele 

The Little Folkies Big Kids' Ukulele class is for preschoolers who have outgrown the mixed age classes.

The class incorporates the songs from the Little Folkies repertoire as well as familiar folk songs to sing and play on the ukulele! They learn one chord—that chord goes a long way. While playing they learn how to keep a steady rhythm, listen, and play along with the other kids while gaining confidence as musicians.

The classes are pure fun, and also have an educational element. Kids will learn the five musical elements—rhythm, pitch, melody, harmony, and dynamics—through lots of musical games and activities that help build a foundation for the child’s musical competence. Thee students learn basic note values and musical symbols through drawing, playing, moving and throughout the class there will be a lot of ukulele jamming!

This is a parent-participation class, and students must be accompanied by an adults during class.
