HomeLink Elementary Music Theater Workshop
Grades 1-5, Mondays, 9:30-1:30; Cost $90/month, September-June
Students will cultivate a deeper understanding of the Middle Ages and the Age of Discovery as they prepare musical dramatizations of stories from this historical period. Three formal performances will be conducted. In preparing for the plays, students will receive lessons in music, drama, art, and history. Homework assignments in history and language arts will be given to enhance learning and provide guidance and accountability for those who need it. We have expanded this program to include science and math.
