    Sundry Music Exploration
    Sundry Learning (jhfarm@gmail.com)

    Sundry Music Exploration is a chance for kids to learn about and play instruments from all over the world. During most classes we go around our circle at least once for kids to share with the class what they can play and/or sing. Each child is then given their own turn to have the class join in on parts or just listen. This gives each child a chance to be an active listener and sing and play songs that they have made up or that they have learned before. We also like to start each class with a book about music and then incorporate some of that into our own music. I also encourage kids to bring their own instruments if they can and share them with the class, unless of course they are wind instruments. Most importantly it is a fun place for kids to express their own music in ways that they may or may not have been able to do before. I also teach them age old classic songs like Down by the Bay and a few educational ones that I have wrote. Looking forward to making music soon! Check out my website at www.sundrylearning.com You can sign up by sending your name, phone # and email, your childs name and grade and mail a check to John Bradshaw 3376 Ross rd Palo Alto CA, 94303
