For your private holiday or birthday party!
Julie and Crystal DO also teach dance, theater, older children, plus private in-home lessons in voice, piano and guitar-just ask. We also both do grown-up gigs like jazz bands, other styles of music bookings, theater shows and more!
creating musical experiences
It's easier than you think to make interesting music at home. Make a water drum in the bathtub with a large bowl and spoon. Turn the bowl side up and tap it while it floats during bath time. If you'd rather go outside on a hot day, you'll need two or more bowls. The larger one should have enough water to float a smaller one upside down inside. Tap with chopsticks, hands, spoons, etc.
Save your recycling and fill empty and clean plastic bottles with various rattling bits. Glue AND tape the top closed!! If you have very young ones-try to fill the bottles with something that would be relatively safe if it broke open, spilled and they ate some, such as cheerios orraisins. Choose sturdy salad dressing bottles or plastic peanut butter jars rather than water bottles. The thickness of the plastic will help for sound and durability. For an easy home made rain stick, fill a long thin bottle entirely with toothpicks, then add just a tablespoon of dry rice or seed beads.
Previously we provided music classes for UCLA Family Commons. In summer 2013, when the venue closed, we moved to a new location right across the street. Join us now at the First Presbyterian Church of Santa Monica, on Wednesdays, with more locations, days and times available!
