Tickling the Ivories…..Big Kids Music Tour wraps up keyboards with fun!

Big Kids Music Tour, a four-part series of fantastic music lessons recently wrapped up the keyboard session to the delight of parents, participants and instructor Melissa Monforti. BKMT is part of Mile High Music Together and is located ont Tennyson Street in Northwest Denver.

Keyboards offered your virtuosos the opportunity to learn basic scales, tempo and theory of piano in a super-fun and creative setting. The class also included a giant floor keyboard where students learned scales by leaping from key to key. Based on participation, exploration and fun, Miss Melissa ensured keyboards was a huge success.

We can’t wait for the next session, which is guitar and scheduled to begin January 9th.

 

Keyboards…..Big Kids Music Tour is at it again.

Fall has begun and with it a new semester at Mile High Music‘s Big Kids Music Tour. This stop on the tour features keyboards and what class would be complete without a giant keyboard you can jump and dance on. Ms. Melissa leads this group of eager young musicians through movement, stories and play to understand that a love for the keyboard is not just black and white.

BMX Clinics at County Line…..Plus Size BMX teaches kids how to Go Fast!!

Plus Size BMX has teamed with SE Bikes, Joe’s Bike Shop, Black Market Bikes, VP Components and Pryme Protective Gear to create a series of fantastic clinics teaching young riders the fundamentals of racing, street and park riding.

More Drums…..Big Kids Music Tour introduces the snare

I had the opportunity to get back into a second Big Kid Music Tour Drum class last week. Miss Melissa was introducing the snare drum and everyone was very excited to experiment with the snazzy sounds of the snare. Another great day and more great images.

Lots more leaping…..Leap Dance Studio covers Denver with opportunities for young ones

I had previously posted about the fantastic ballet class that my daughter attends through Leap Dance Studio. I am now pleased to say that I have had the opportunity to photograph almost all of the classes that Leap offers at all three of their locations around Denver. The locations Scheitler Rec Center in Northwest Denver, Cook Park Rec Center in south-east Denver and Central Park Rec Center in Stapleton give families many choices for children to pursue their favorite dance styles. Creative movement for the little ones, ballet, tap and hip-hop are all offered by the wonderful instructors at Leap.

As this semester comes to a close all of the classes are very busy preparing for the final recital. The excitement and dedication from the young dancers is amazing and the production should be fantastic.

Blasting Beat & Raging Rythmn…..Big Kids Music Tour drums up fun with Mile High Music.

If you happen down Tennyson Street on a Wednesday afternoon you may be walking to the beat of a different drummer or drummers as the case may be. Mile High Music holds their Big Kids Music Tour at their facility in the north Highlands neighborhood. This class is focusing on drums and the group of 5-10 year old are definitely finding their rhythm and beating up a storm. Miss Melissa, their instructor leads this enthusiastic crew as they explore, learn, dance and beat their way through each class.

Please note that this is a drop off class and parents may only enviously watch the fun from the waiting room.
