Theory classes

One-hour group classes are taught in the school studios. This instruction is suggested when a more sustained learning progression is sought. La Petite Fanfare can also adapt this class to a student’s specific needs. Please communicate with the school office for more information.

Group classes

The students discover and work on voice (CHELSEA GLEE, ADULT JAZZ CLUB) and chamber music repertoires. These groups are open to community members. Please call and inquire about participation in those groups.

Musical awakening

The musical awakening program is taught to small groups of children (5 children or less). It is intended to initiate the 3-4 year-olds to the wonderful world of music. While playing, children learn the scale, intensity and duration of sounds, sound environment, rythm and pulses, instruments, and different kinds of music. This program is offered in weekly 50 minute classes.
