Music makes life more interesting and adds an emotional dimension to any event that greatly increases the effect of the experience. Can you imagine a movie or a political rally or almost any large event without music? So we all like music and understand its emotional impact, but more and more studies show a direct link between music and other learning. Children with music in their educational agenda may show increased math and language skills, as music learning supports all learning. And the most magical thing of all is that your child will love the music and the learning that it inspires. This program is a ten week class. Bruce and Debbie will provide everything that your child will need to participate. This is not a drop-off program, and you as a parent are the best teacher for your child. Come ready to sing and join the activities with your child and you will both have a great time. A younger sibling (8 months or younger) of a registered child may attend free. At least one parent or adult caregiver must accompany each family group. Bruce and Debbie’s goal is to provide music for young imaginations through research- based songs and activities. Their music and movement program is designed to provide musical magic for you and your child. Be ready to visit the music of various cultures around the world, play many different colorful instruments, take countless imaginary trips, feel the pulse of our gathering drums, dance with your Teddy bear or spin with a bright silk scarf, and sing the happy songs of our music collection. Come make music and make friends with Bruce and Debbie at Do Re Mi by the Sea. Feel free to give them a call at 541 961-6447. Debbie is retired from a nursing background. Her interest in music and dance goes back to her early teens when she learned to play her guitar and loved to sing folk songs. She sang in Sweet Adelines, was secretary for a local music club, violinist in a small weekly music group, and participated in several dance programs. Bruce has a background as an optician and worked for 30 years in that field. He has a BS degree in Elementary Education with a minor in Physics. He learned to play guitar in high school. His interest in music combines with his woodworking hobby, and he has made many instruments, including the mandolin and banjo Debbie will be using in class. He sees the elimination of music programs in public schools as a tragic misfortune and is pleased to bring music back into the lives of children.
