MUSIC MONKEY JUNGLE SING ALONG is a good old-fashioned, community style sing along for music monkeys of all ages, sizes, levels and abilities. We’ll sing, dance, laugh, play, move, imagine and create while focusing on melody, unison, range, dynamics, tempo, call & response and having a rockin’ good time.
THE MUSIC MONKEY JUNGLE JAM combines the goodness of the sing along with a beginner percussion experience. The Jam is filled with music monkeys who rock, roll, move, groove, bounce, bop and jam their rhythms on the drums. This interactive experience is the precursor to Music Monkey Jungle Drummers.
MUSIC MONKEY JUNGLE DRUMMERS is percussion instrument exploration for music monkeys who love all things rhythm. We’ll play body percussion, gathering drums, hand drums and auxiliary percussion while identifying, writing and reading patterns of quarter notes and eighth notes. We’ll also work together and independently for the development of coordination, balance and listening skills.
