Session Three:  April 9 – May 18
   

Thursdays, 3:30-4:15

  • The Caterpillar Choir mission is to provide a foundation of creative expression, emotional and intellectual connection, and joyful exploration through the power of music.
  • In this Dalcroze-inspired class, our body will become our instrument. We will run, skip, walk, clap, snap, create, and more. Throughout the duration of this class we will learn rhythmic movement, ear training, and improvisation, while also exploring the voice and various instruments.
  • The theme for this session is Musical Forest! We will meet all the magical animals in the forest while internalizing the power of music!
  • Instructor Woan-Ching Lim, associate conductor of the Tucson Girls Chorus
