Hi, it's Claudette Munné I'm the Co-Artistic Director of Belle Arti Center for the Arts at Forest Hills, Queens New York
Do you feel that your child is getting bored with their Mommy & Me music class? Do you feel your child is ready for more? Well perhaps they are ready to try our signature music class, Musical Aurora®.
When I first created this class, my goal was to make music more accessible at an earlier age. And after 20 years of teaching, and after 10 years of running this class, Musical Aurora® has proven to be the best way to bridge the gap between Mommy & Me classes and starting an instrument. Musical Aurora® is designed for children ages 2, 3, 4 and 5. For me, the beauty of the process for this class is that I have the opportunity to assess each child before placing them in a group. Not everyone is ready the first time they try the class, which is why I offer free assessments every Saturday.
The program is creative, fun, engaging and is designed for small groups of 5 children. The class focuses on teaching them the fundamentals of music through games, songs, and dance, and incorporates ear training, rhythm training, and reading training and exposes the kids to the piano, violin guitar and cello in a hands on manner…They are not learning how to play it yet, they are just trying them on.
