About Mr. D's Music Club
Mr. D’s Music Club offers a comprehensive school music program for children in grades K-8 or as a modified after school program for grades 3-8.
We explore the power of music, the complexities of different styles, the joy of singing and the creativity of writing original music. As the program progresses we learn about recording, editing and performance culminating with an end of year performance organized, choreographed and performed by the students.
This is the opportunity for your child to discover not only their hidden musical talents, but they can learn so much about the technical and creative side as well. Each child is different, so as the class progresses and new elements are brought in, every child finds something they want to learn more about whether that be recording, producing, lighting, dancing or performing.
Mr. D has a knack for finding the hidden talents in kids and helping bring them to light so they can shine. Check out more of the website for a full overview of what Mr. D’s Music Club has to offer your child or school.
