The College of Mount St. Joseph’s Music Academy is offering new Class Experiences geared toward children in grades K-12.

Students in grades 6-10 can register for “Jazz Enthusiasm.” The class meets twice a month on Sundays from 2-3:30 p.m. through May. The class teaches everything from jazz techniques to rock history to modern recording methods and how to implement them into performance and improvisation. Students will have access to computers and learn how to compose their own music. The class, taught by Joel Greenberg, music educator and  professional guitarist, costs $225.

“Music for Munchkins” is a brand new opportunity for children ages 4-6 to learn basic fundamentals of music through movement, rhythm, singing, group participation, and playing instruments. Chelsey Sweatman, music teacher at Delshire Elementary and the Director of the Cincinnati Children’s Choir’s west satellite, will teach this six-week session which starts June 11 from 10-11 a.m. The cost is $100.

“Our new Class Experiences are excellent opportunities for students of all ages to have additional instruction in music, or even for those who enjoy trying something new,” said Bryan Crisp, Artistic Director for the Music Academy. “We also offer private music lessons on all instruments, including voice, for all ages and abilities.”

Class Experiences offer discounts for multiple children and for Mount employees as well. For more information or to register, visit
