Janita Mestre- Melody Music Appreciation
At five years old Janita Mestre began learning music at a music conservatory in Portugal. Since then, she has pursued her love for music and play the violin, cello, piano, guitar as well as singing. This class is designed to improve your child’s knowledge and interest in music. Every month a new instrument will be introduced, followed by music theory and songs. They will also learn about historic composers and their musical pieces. I will bring in the instrument of the month, play a song for the kids and let them have a hands on experience with the instrument themselves. This is an interactive, hands on and exciting class!
