Instrument Explorers II

This is the perfect group class that will prepare your child for private music lessons. Students will get to play a variety of instruments, and learn about tempi, dynamics, musical form, beginning music notation and more as they explore many genres of music! (Caregivers wait in the lobby.)

Not quite ready for music lessons? Level 4 classes help build a foundation for formal music instruction. Children explore basic music symbols and more complex instruments, and master concepts that boost learning in other subjects.

Joel Medina

Joel fell in love with music through involvement with his church. He started to play percussion, drums, guitar, and piano there. He taught music at elementary schools in Puerto Rico and is back in Chicago inspiring students of all ages here. In addition to Kindermusik classes, Joel also teaches guitar, drums, piano, and several ensemble classes at Bucktown Music. 🎶 Learning different types of music also helped him fall more in love with the universal language of music - Jazz, Bossa Nova, Blues, Pop, Reggae, Ska, Punk, Reggeaton, Rock, Metal, Hip-hop, Contemporary Classical, etc.
