SHEPHERDSTOWN, WV — Shepherd University’s Community Music Program is offering summer early childhood music classes on Wednesdays beginning June 13 in the Frank Center. Tuition for each class is $70.

The classes, for children age 18 months to 7 years, are intended to help develop music, language, verbal development, and spatial-temporal skills. The students will learn the rudiments of music such as rhythm, tempo, and melodic movement by working with children’s songs from around the world, stories, and movement to music. They will play rhythm and Orff instruments during the lessons and explore summer sounds like bumblebees, frogs, and birds. They will also sing echo songs and learn simple circle dances.

The following classes will run on Wednesday, June 13, 20, and 27, and July 11, and 18:
