Kids’ Workshops: ‘For the Love of Music’ at Word Up

For the Love of Music is an educational program that gives young children the opportunity to experience classical music in an exciting and engaging environment. Through interactive live performances, guided listening, and explorative conversations, kids will discover how to listen deeply and communicate openly.

Each series will consist of six weekly sequential sessions, and will focus on an overarching theme that incorporates both social and musical concepts. The series will end with a final concert of the music we explored during the workshops.

The workshops are free and will be led by uptown-based teaching artists Katherine Liccardo and Matt Consul. No prior musical experience is necessary to attend the workshops! Recommended for ages 7-11.
