LITTLE ROOTS CLASS DESCRIPTIONS
The Little Roots Family Class is an enriching and engaging community music experience for the young child and their grown-ups. This is your little one’s introduction to the joy of music. As longtime professional musicians, Little Roots founders, Annie Stevenson and Maggie Shar, recognize the value of quality live music for people of all ages. Maggie and Annie select and write songs rooted in a variety of folk music traditions. The repertoire is fun and accessible, including elements of storytelling and exposure to various instruments. Children will enjoy group singing with guitar, banjo, or ukulele to accompany, hand and stick drumming, bells, movement, dance, and more!
The Little Roots Bedtime Class is a mellow spin on the online family music class. Get into your jammies, cuddle up on the couch as a family, and join Annie live on Zoom for calm and quiet songs and stories to wind down the day.
Little Ukes (4-6) is a fun introduction to playing the Ukulele for children ages 4-6 yrs who have outgrown the mixed age classes but are still too young for private lessons. Our curriculum includes some familiar instruments and songs from the Little Roots repertoire, and the children also learn to sing and play familiar folk songs on the ukulele. They will learn two or three chords, how to keep a steady rhythm, and how to listen and play along with other people. The classes are fun, hands-on, and interactive. We focus on rhythm, pitch, melody, and dynamics through musical games and activities. The students learn basics like parts of the ukulele, how to hold, how to strum in different ways, names of strings, through playing, moving and lots of ukulele jamming! Taught online by Maggie.
Little Ukes II (7-9) is slightly more advanced than "Little Ukes", this class includes chord learning, song playing, and exploration of rhythm using songs and concepts from the Little Roots repertoire. Taught online by Mia!
The Little Roots Show is filmed music series for families featuring Little Roots & Special Guests.
