Twist & Turn! - Summer 2016
Ages: 6 months - 4 years of age
Day and Time: Wednesdays, 3:45-4:25 pm
Dates: 7/6, 7/13, 7/20, 7/27, 8/3, 8/10, 8/17, 8/24
Twist & Turn is based on nursery rhymes – the beloved poems and chants handed down from generation to generation! Nursery rhymes offer today’s children the wisdom of the ages as well as what research and experience tell us children need: communication, movement, interaction, repetition, and cultural customs – all experienced in a playful way.
This class is designed to be taught to children of mixed ages. Activities are written for the core age group, ages 1 – 3, with adaptations for babies and extensions for preschoolers provided. We vary the activities according to the makeup of each individual class. Mixed age classes allow families with limited time to all come to the same class and give families an opportunity to develop a shared repertoire of music and childhood games.
Watch your child’s imagination, language skills, cognitive development, motor skills, and self-confidence take flight in these fun-filled classes.
Class materials include a CD of all the songs and dances, a parent song book, and an instrument or scarf.
Tuition: $275, including materials. EARLY BIRD REGISTRATION of $235 if you sign up before June 1.
13th Annual Southampton String Festival (Ages 6 - 19)
Our 13th season! August 8 - 19, 2016 • Monday - Friday
The mission of the Southampton String Festival is to give students (violinists, violists, and cellists ages 6 to 19) an opportunity to intensively study classical repertoire and skills in a hands-on, fun, creative way while broadening the scope of their musical knowledge and appreciation. Classes are taught by highly-skilled musicians and teachers who have a passion for inspiring students to learn and discover. Year after year, parents are astonished and amazed by how much their children learn in such a short period of time — and more importantly, how much fun they have doing it.

MUSIC TOGETHER BY THE DUNES (Newborn - Age 5)
Music Together is an internationally recognized music program for children from birth through age 5 – and the grownups who love them. At Music Together we understand the importance of music in early childhood – Music learning supports ALL learning!
At the core of the Music Together approach is the idea that young children learn best from the powerful role models of parent/caregivers who are actively making music. Our program brings families together by providing a rich musical environment in the classroom and then facilitating family participation in spontaneous musical activity at home in daily life – which is so important to music development and early childhood learning. It’s based on the recognition that, in a supportive environment, children can learn to sing in tune, keep a beat, and confidently participate in the music of their culture. Music Together creates that environment by emphasizing actual music-making experiences instead of passively consuming music from the media.
We dance, sing, play instruments, create musical verses, do rhythm chants and sing tonal patterns. Come to a class - you will be immersed in music making, while bonding with your child and having a lot of Fun! Families always say “Miss Ina’s class” is their “favorite class of the week”!
Music Together is now offered in 40 countries around the world in 2500 locations. Ina Ferrara offers classes here at the Southampton Cultural Center with Music Together by the Dunes.
