Tweeties Topics are written by Music Kids director and CSM instructor Margaret Dahlberg to support parents of young children in the Music Kids program. Music Kids is Chinook School of Music’s early childhood music program for ages six months to five years.
Aggressive behaviour in young children is a sensitive subject. Most parents have experienced the anguish that comes with watching their child harm another little one. This is especially challenging as it can be an emotionally charged issue for any adults in attendance, let alone the child in harm’s way. The good news is you are not alone.
Each year at CSM, we are pleased to provide a unique learning and performance opportunity for students.
In our Chinook Celebration of Music Festival, students perform a musical selection for a professional adjudicator and receive both written and spoken feedback on their performances. This high quality, non-competitive, festival is for students in all instruments and of all skill levels. Students are scheduled into classes based on age and skill level. Classes are also available for adult students. All genres of music are welcome.
CSM is pleased to announce that we've added the JANOD high quality instrument line to our product inventory this year! If you're looking for the perfect birthday gift for a little one, or to add to your home instrument collection, consider one of their fine products. Drop by our office during business hours to view the selection.
