Fernandina Beach’s DaCoda Music is offering individual piano, group piano, music theory, composition lessons and Musikgarten classes.
Individual lessons are for ages 5 and up. Lessons incorporate music theory and music appreciation. Students will be eligible to participate in music festivals, competitions and recitals through affiliation with Jacksonville Music Teachers’ Association and Florida State Music Teachers’ Association.
In addition to traditional piano lessons, DaCoda Music offers group lessons for adults and teens that follow the Recreational Music Movement (RMM) a grassroots movement that asserts that making music belongs to everyone. The core principals of RMM are that: All people should experience the joy and benefits of music making; music making can be enjoyed without stress and performance requirements; music making can nurture the whole person and improve quality of life and overall health of the participant.
MusikGarten classes are group settings of music and movement and begin at birth through 9 years. The first classes being offered in February are for children 18 mo-3years. Classes for 3-5 year olds will be added in August. For more information about MusikGarten visit musikgarten.org.
