Taos Youth Music School announces Spring classes

Taos Youth Music School announces Spring classes. These are free tuition after school programs. We have openings in the following classes:

Kindergarten and First Grade General Music Class
Tuesdays 4:00-5:00 p.m.

As TYMS is an “after” school program our biggest priority in the K/1 class is FUN! That having been said, students in this class work at developing both skill and understanding in the basic elements of music via experiences in body percussion, speech, singing, movement, games, reading books that can be sung and the playing of pitched and un-pitched percussion instruments. Within any one class, the activities might be mixed, i.e., beginning with moving to a short piece of orchestral music, playing a game, working with a poem, adding instruments, creating movement and gesture that act out the text, etc. Taught by local musician and ORFF trained teacher Rachael Penn.

Intermediate Guitar – Sixth through Twelfth Grades
Thursdays 4:00 – 5:30 p.m.

Students in the intermediate guitar class need to know open chords and have at least 7-10 songs or song riffs under their belt. They have to be able to comfortably handle the guitar. This class will advance their skills and fluency with the instrument. Taught by local musician extraordinaire Sarah Martinez.
