LAM World Music Ensemble
All are welcome to join the LAM World Music Ensemble with Penelope Quesada who will guide this exciting 14 week session around the world with music.
Students will use Orff percussion instruments as well as their voices to make beautiful music from cultures near and far. This is a wonderful class to learn ensemble playing, strengthen community, learn globally, be exposed to new languages, and develop percussion and vocal skills. The session will end in a performance for families plus additional community performances. Read more about Penelope Quesada’s experience as a performer and teacher here.
No prior experience necessary- instruments and music will be provided.
Feb. 23rd- June 1st (no class on April 6th)
Taught by Penelope Quesada
The Children’s Choir at Louisville Academy of Music
This is a choir open to all singers between the ages of 6 and 10. This group setting offers a great alternative for children who love to sing but might not be quite ready for private voice lessons. Children will be introduced to concepts such as breath, singing technique, pitch, rhythm and will begin to sightread notes. Solfege based on movable ‘Do’ will be the standard. Singing is all done in unison to build intonation and group singing skills. The choir will meet once each week for 45 minute sessions and will perform in the Spring Recital at the end of the 10-week block.
Fridays 5:00-5:45 pm

February 7th - April 11th
Taught by Andrew Callaway (graduate of TIMARA @ Oberlin)
This 10-week session will cover early ensemble playing and music theory. Students will also have the opportunity to perform solo pieces from their lessons with a pianist for their peers. We will perform a final group concert and will have other community performance opportunities as a group. This is the perfect way for students to strengthen their violin playing and to build community alongside their private lessons. To create a more hands-on experience, the class is taught by two violin teachers plus a pianist for solo and group playing.
Wednesdays March 13- May 15th
Level II: 4:15-5:15
Level I: 5:15-6
That children learn to sing the same way they learn to talk and walk and eat – through play and watching and imitating their primary caregivers, whether that means parent, grandparent, babysitter or nanny. And the families who make Music Together at Shine will tell you that the class is as much for them, as for their child! Learn more here.
We are excited to host Music Together Classes at LAM in the new year!
