Updated: Apr 26

A list of everything you'll need for your virtual Stages class broken down by class!


THIS WEEK'S SCHEDULE:

Haven't enrolled yet? Visit stageschicago.com


BROADWAY & ME (Hamilton)

  • COMPUTER, IPHONE, IPOD, IPAD, TABLET, ETC.

  • BUBBLES AND/OR BUBBLE MACHINE

  • CLEAN-UP BIN: Hampers, Tupperware, Baskets, or Ikea Bags work great!

  • CASTANETS: Help us keep the beat! We'll be using castanets but any blocks, drums, shakers or any percussive instrument works! Wondering what a percussive instrument is? It's an instrument that keeps a beat rather than playing a melody.

  • FIRST WORD BOOKS: We'll be putting our minds to work! Have your favorite book (or books) handy.

  • SHAKER MARACAS: Don't have a shaker maraca? You can make one with some rice and a water bottle or tupperware container! Needing to keep it simple this week? Any instrument your child can control will do! Try to avoid toy instruments that are battery operated and atomically play music.

  • RED, WHITE, + BLUE'S: Grab something red, white, and/or blue to wave in the air!

  • ROOM TO MOVE with a table or counter nearby to put your electronic device on. We want to be able to see you!

  • A PRIVATE SPACE Please find a quiet, private place for your child to participate in our virtual classes. Video conferencing can be difficult if there's too much going on in the background and we know some of our K-8 friends don't like when moms, dads, caregivers, and siblings watching them practice. 😉
