Course Overview of our Workshops

Kids’ MusicRound offers two core workshops to choose from. Aside from being the most fun you’ll ever have in a workshop, you gather a wealth of information, confidence and skill to bring into any music classroom.
 We have two styles of workshops:  live, face-to-face and online.  Online workshops have become popular allowing participants to enjoy from the comfort of their homes. An internet connection, webcam & microphone are required.  Live, on-location workshops are dependent upon scheduling.
