Boogie Bugs – Summer show news, AND Saturday Morning club is coming back!!

cropped-boogiebugsjpeg1.jpgOur Littlest music makers have a busy time ahead, with our Mini Music Makers Saturday club starting again soon as well!

Our regular Wednesday class will be preparing for a wee summer show, nothing too serious, we like to make sure at this age that the focus is not on traditional ‘shows’, but on performance preparation, fun, creating a love of music, singing in the mic, taking the stage, trying lots of different kinds of music and instruments, sharing and learning together and fostering confidence that will stay with our children.  We’ll be singing you a few songs we’ve been learning together before we break for Summer hols, and we think you’ll love them ❤

Wednesday class continues till the end of June, but we’ll also be re-starting our SATURDAY MORNING CLUB soon too in The Exchange!  2 hours of crafts, instrument making, and singing dancing, trying new instruments, parachute games, microphone work etc.  This MINI MUSIC MAKERS series was always jammers last year so keep an eye out on the page for upcoming dates OR pm me now if you’d like to be contacted about those classes.

As summer approaches, we can also welcome some new kiddos to our Wednesday Boogie Bugs class which runs from 4-5pm in The Exchange in Buncrana, so let me know if you have a wee one that wants to be part of our happy musical family!
