ABOUT TINY MUSICIANS ////////////////////////////////////////////////////
There will be nursery rhymes and songs, rhythm and movement exercises, simple and fun instruments, and plenty of ways to experience the joy of play! Each pair of participants — the tiny musician and their parent/guardian — will be guided through an hour of educational play, gently structured so that the child can learn, families can bond, and everyone in the group can get to know one another in a fun and nurturing environment.
THE MAGIC OF MUSIC:
Early introduction to music education has been proven to:
Enhance auditory and fine motor skills
Improve verbal communication and nonverbal reasoning
Build a solid foundation for lifelong learning
Spark social development
Strengthen emotional bonds
MEET THE INSTRUCTORS ////////////////////////////////////////////////////
AUDREY DAVIS (SATURDAY SESSIONS):
Audrey’s appreciation for music and movement was implanted in her at an early age- her mom taught aerobics while pregnant with her and throughout her childhood. As the second-oldest of four, her and her older sister were in charge of choreography and music for family reunion performances, as well as the annual performances of the dance squad they formed while in high school. This foundation of confidence with breath, flow, and rhythm became a constant reference point for her into adulthood — including a 4-year enlistment in the US Navy, 3 years of graduate and post-graduate study of art, theology and music in Rome, Italy, and into her career as a community organizer. Since she and her husband were gifted with their young daughter, Norah, she sees daily the benefit of incorporating self-expression, rhythm, musical play and movement into daily life, and hopes to help all children gain this foundation to bring years of fun, confidence, and cultural engagement to their own lives.
ESTER COPLIN (WEDNESDAY SESSIONS):
Esther is a graduate of Indiana Wesleyan University where she studied flute performance. During her undergraduate degree program she was able to travel internationally to Austria to perform in the Wind Youth Orchestra Project and to Montreal, Canada to participate in the summer Domaine Forgét program. She also participated in several wind band tours across the United States including a trip to perform in the IPFW Wind Ensemble at Carnegie Hall. These experiences broadened her understanding and appreciation both for music and the lovely people who create it.
