~After School Music Classes~

Coburg Community Charter School is offering two after-school music classes beginning late January, through the end of spring (May 14th). Mr. Powell, Director of Music, will teach each of the twice-weekly classes.
Drumline/Percussion After School Enrichment Class
Open to students in Grades 4 & 5. Class meets on Mon. and Wed. from 3:15-4:00 at Coburg Community Charter School. Classes begin on January 26th. Final class is May 13th.
Students in this class will play percussion instruments with an emphasis on rhythmic fundamentals, rhythmic notation, stick and mallet control and improvisation. Students will work with snare drums, tom toms, bass drums, pitched percussion (piano, marimba, etc.), cymbals and world percussion instruments including African, Latin, Asian, and Middle-Eastern drums. The class includes one or more performances displaying each student’s ability to play various percussion instruments and also demonstrate their ability to perform in a group setting. Maximum – 25 students. Fee per student – $150. Scholarships are available.
Elementary Chorus and Percussion Class
Open to students in Grades 1 through 3. Class meets on Tues. and Thurs. from 3:15-4:00 at Coburg Community Charter School. Classes begin on January 27th. Final class is May 14th.
This class is an introduction to the joy of group singing while emphasizing proper posture, projection, movement and clarity. We will also include the use of percussion instruments such as marimba and xylophone, piano, and a large array of drums and small percussion instruments. Music notation will be introduced as well as improvisation. Our repertoire will include classical, popular, and international folk music. Singing and drumming develop coordination, focus and concentration, build team spirit and are fantastic as a preparation for learning other instruments.
The class will culminate with a group performance. Maximum – 20 students. Fee per student – $150. Scholarships are available.
If you are interested in either of these Enrichment Classes, please contact Mr. Powell via email at mr.powell@coburgcharter.org and he will contact families with specifics.
