The Handmade Music School presents Music Fun with Kari Kovick at Home: Winter Edition on Friday, January 22, 2021 at 10:30am EST.  This class is presented via Crowdcast as part of our Handmade at Home online series, in partnership with Heart of the Child Music Education. Cost is $30 and includes access to a recording of the class. You do not need to be present at the live event to access the replay. See you at home!

Are you afraid you’ll go stir-crazy this winter? Don’t! Pull out the pots and pans and instruments you have at home and join Kari whenever you like, for 30+ minutes of musical fun for your 1 to 6 year old child. Kari’s joyful interactive family music classes have been a hit for years every Friday morning on the Floyd Country Store dance floor. Now enjoy Music Fun with Kari at Home, the next best thing to being there. Her winter set includes songs about bears, sneezes, snow, owls, and ponies. It captures the magical quiet of this time of year, but also the raucous fun of animals coming out of sleep and into play. She’ll have your child galloping, stomping, scurrying and even swinging through the jungle with big body action. She’ll “Ring in the New Year” with jingle bells, and explore all kinds of ways to make sounds with drums. You will be amazed at how quickly your child (and maybe you?) will be able to play along with a steady beat, and sing along with gusto.

Curious about instruments? You can purchase Kari’s instrument bags in the Floyd Country Store online shop or improvise at home with plastic containers and kitchen utensils.
