Lawson Academy of the Arts at Converse College: Music for Young Children

Guys!  We had no clue what all we’ve been missing at Lawson Academy of the Arts at Converse College!  They offer so many ways to get your kids involved in the arts starting at just FOURTEEN MONTHS OLD!

We had the opportunity to sample a Musikgarten class, sit in on a portion of a Bollywood dance class, and take a peek into some of the many lessons for children, both private and group!  Not only were we blown away with the talent of all of the kids and teachers, the environment was friendly and the campus is beautiful.

Check out the list of programs for children below or head straight to their website by clicking here!

And don’t forget about Fine Arts Day Camp where kids age 4 – rising 6th grade can experience art, music, creative writing, dance, and theatre instruction in a fun camp setting!  Registration is OPEN!  Click here!

Parenting Pros.

The parents’ perspective…

 

The teachers are experienced and very talented!

 

Classes are offered for both private and group lessons!

 

Your kids can take a lesson while you sit on a college campus and reminisce… or go to the grocery store in peace- depends on the day!

 

There’s something for all ages!

Kid Talk.

What the kids had to say…

 

“Wait, do we have to leave?”

 

“I want to sing like that!”

 

“That was fun!”

 

“I’ll be a butterfly.  You be a bee!”

Nerd Alert!

Developmental skills addressed:

 

“Musical experiences in childhood can actually accelerate brain development, particularly in the areas of language acquisition and reading skills.”

 

“Music ignites all areas of child development and skills for school readiness: intellectual, social and emotional, motor, language, and overall literacy”

 

“It helps the body and mind work together.”
