Thanks for stopping by A Family Place. I enjoy working with families, and sharing the power of music with them. Kindermusik provides this outlet for me. This blog will allow me to share thoughts and ideas that can help families in their journey.

Music for 7 - 10 year olds!

Orffestrations - it's not listed in a brochure for the summer 2010 classes, but if your child is ages 7 - 10 they can enroll in this special music experience. No prior experience is necessary, but a love of music is required.

What is Orffestrations? It is a music and movement class that takes songs and "orffestrates" them using various instruments. We use drums, barred instruments (xylophones, metallophones, glockenspiels), woods, metals and an occasional recorder.

What will my child gain from this camp? Ensemble skills (needed for band & chorus), listening skills (needed in life!), rhythmic & melodic reading, and creativity. All this while making music with friends!

You can check here to see an example from last year's class.

How do you enroll? Email me at and I'll give you the address where you can mail your payment. The cost is $70. (Pay by May 1 and deduct $5)
Orffestrations is offered June 14 - 18 from 10 - noon. Class will meet in the Kindermusik room on the Berry College campus.
