Future Classes At Artista Bottega


Family Musique” @ Artista Bottega 937 W 7th St, Saint Paul, MN

8 week session Thursdays 10am - 10:45 Jan 10-Feb 28

(*suggested age birth-kindergarten w/caregiver - older siblings welcome;)

A fun morning of song and dance that fosters music appreciation and basic beat & pitch competency. Music is offered that catches a child's imagination and that inspires participation, play, and learning through active music making.

Children will "play with" musical materials in the same way that they learn art by "playing with" pencils, crayons, and paints or learn language by "playing with" sounds, words, and ideas. In class, we sing, dance, play instruments, laugh, and explore music and movement in a relaxed yet focused setting. Flexible environment for new students and continuing students alike.
