Concord Conservatory offers winter classes for all ages

December 1, 2022

Give the gift of music this holiday season! It’s the gift that keeps on giving—learning and playing an instrument in a group guarantees an engaging and fun experience, no matter the age of the student. From newborn through adult, there’s a class for every age and ability. Register by Dec. 16 to secure a spot. Most winter group classes begin the first week in January.

Balancing rigor with the joy and fun of creating music, CCM group classes provide excellence in music education. Small classes give each student individual attention while learning and connecting with others.

Ukulele Crash Course for Kids

New this winter, the comprehensive and fun Ukulele Crash Course for Kids will give students the fundamental skills to get them started on this easy-to-tote instrument. Students will learn some practical applications of music theory, the basic care and maintenance of their ukulele, as well as strum patterns, chords, progressions, and songs. They’ll be ready to lead a group of friends in song around the campfire by summer.

For kids, the early childhood program includes Music Makers and Family Notes for the youngest musicians. Stimulate physical, language, social, cognitive, and musical development through musical play for all ages and skill levels. Each class will incorporate simple percussion instruments, creative movement, improvisation, and playful props.

For adults, whether you’re a beginner or have many years of experience, there’s a group class for you to join in the New Year. Try out ukulele, banjo, or guitar classes including the new The Hootenanny and the Folk Heritage and Shufflin’ the Blues classes. Love bluegrass? Sign up for the Bluegrass Solo Workshop—it’s for beginner and intermediate musicians who are new to bluegrass soloing, or those who have been frustrated trying to learn to play solos.
