GREAT TUNES + FUN TIMES = MUSICAL LIFE
The idea for a multi-generational music class began with a conversation between Kate Risse and Rob Guillemin, two Brookline parents with children learning string instruments. In August 2012, while attending a traditional music camp in the woods of Maine, they experienced the simple and powerful strategies for musical enjoyment and success. That's when they decided to create a music education experience grounded in festivity and powered by the social energy found in living rooms, on front porches, and around campfires.
The goal of this course is to build the positive experiences and skills that support a life of musical activity and enjoyment. The classes keep students engaged with inspiring instructors, a format that supports a range of talents, and a friendly and welcoming social setting.
