NEW- FUN WITH MUSIC HISTORY:  A LAPBOOK APPROACH TO LEARNING! 
Ages 7 & Older

What is a lapbook?  A creative, hands-on, multisensory method of learning!  If you love music and also enjoy arts and crafts, or if you just want to learn more about the great classical composers and have fun in the process, then this may be the class for you.  Students will learn more about music and the great composers as they creatively assemble their lapbooks to take home as a lasting memory of what they have learned.  All materials will be provided in class.  No prior musical experience is necessary to take this class, which would also be a wonderful enrichment offering for anyone studying piano or another instrument, or just interested in art and music.  Instructor:  Vicky Ostwald
