Musical Storytelling

Spooky Stories & Sound Effects

Our musical storytelling program teaches children how musical elements like rhythm, dynamics, and pitch can be used to represent characters in our family friendly spooky stories. Students will explore different sounds using unique instruments and sound processors.

Glockenspiel Closeup

Festival of Bell Instruments

The soundtrack of the holidays always includes the sound of bells. Our program teaches children how to create harmony and melody using hand bells, pan drum and a glockenspiel (metal xylophone). This is a hands on program that allows participants to explore all of the instruments.

Countdown to Noon

We had a great time in 2019, but it’s time to prepare for 2020. Our Countdown to Noon program celebrate’s the end of 2019 with an interactive New Years Parade. We will play a marching snare and children will play hand drums and horns to ring in the new year.

Our library programs are designed for children ages 1-7. As with all of our lessons, every participant will have the opportunity to play instruments, including professional instruments, every session. What makes our program unique is that we give you a variety of program options, or we can customize a program that fits with a theme or curriculum you provide.

Every Music Play Patrol lesson is designed to have three components:

1. Movement Activity (Physical Activity/Dancing)

2. Education/Musical Storytelling Activity (Instrument Discussion)

3. Hands-on Activity (Learning through play)
