4:00pm Kids Crescendo Music
Thursday
4-5pm
Newton
View More

Join the wonderful and skilled instructors of Powers Music School to understand and experience music through movement, story, and song, with activities rooted in the popular Dalcroze Eurhythmics method of learning. They listen to and participate in live music, translating their energy into percussion by stomping, clapping, and tapping. They learn basic pitch-matching and melodies, hearing and expressing the music with their voices. Keyboard basics may also be included.

Skills build up day by day until the final performance, where students showcase what they have learned in an operetta arranged by the faculty, the culmination of the goals they have worked towards as a group. Students play the overture themselves with percussion instruments, then sing, move, and act out the music through story (usually based on a familiar classic tale).

Students leave Kids Crescendo at the end of the session wanting to continue with piano, violin, voice, or even another instrument. It's a fun and creative way to feel the rhythm inside of them and start them on their music journey!

Classes will be held outside as often as possible.

Friday
7am-10pm
Zoom Session
View More

JCC Greater Boston is here to help you and your child thrive on remote learning days!


Virtual Study Buddies provides families with experienced instructors with relevant academic and professional backgrounds. Each instructor has years of experience working with and teaching kids, and believes in the social and emotional wellbeing of our children. Instructors will keep kids engaged and on-track with school assignments, while breaking up their session with virtual games and movement to ensure their time together is rooted in activity, routine and connection. Instructors provide parents with regular feedback about your child to support a connected learning environment.

Packages are purchased by number of hours and can be used in any regularly scheduled arrangement. For example, a 12 pack could be used for two hours once per week for 6 weeks, or one hour twice a week for 6 weeks. The Virtual Study Buddies program is extremely flexible, and we will work with you to accommodate your specific schedule. The program will run for the current school year through June 2022.


For questions and more information, contact family@jccgb.org.
