tucker's preschool pop*rock (3 - 6 y.o.)
mon. 4:30pm (tucker)
Tucker Booth has been teaching kids of all ages for nearly 20 years...but most specifically he has created a "Preschool PopRock" class for 3-6 year olds that incorporates singing, varying musical instruments, dance routines, classic rock music appreciation lessons & beginner group songwriting exercises. A typical class would consist of voice and dance warm ups, a featured classic rock song, varying instrumental activities & time for the class to perform for one another on an open microphone. Tucker also will show the kids how to come up with topics, lyrics and notes for fun songs that they will write as a group in each class. There will also be times where Tucker leads the kids through a “recording session” that involves their newly written songs.Tucker will also sing and play guitar & bring in a small PA speaker so that other music can be streamed by Bluetooth on his phone. This Preschool PopRock class should give each student a solid dose of classic rock and pop music education, basic lessons on a number of musical instruments & hopefully the confidence to eventually speak publicly & perform musically in front of audiences.
