Sample Experiences:
Out of This World! – Students learn about our solar system and the 8 planets using the 8 notes in the musical scale.

Musical Math – Students will discover all of the many ways music is related to math! This experience includes student participation, singing, and performing in groups.
The Science of Music – This experience combines how light and sound waves are produced and culminates in a trying to produce sound in a vacuum. Very fun!

Period music/experience – Is your class learning about a particular place in time? We’d love to teach about traditional dress, dance, and music of the period!
