BEATS & BEETHOVEN
Early childhood music classes located in Madison, Alabama
Beats & Beethoven classes are an introduction to the joy of music-making! Children and parents will be introduced to musical concepts in a fun environment, through traditional folk songs, children’s songs, and classical music, all explored through singing, movement, and active listening. These experiences lay a foundation for any child to continue studying and appreciating music throughout his or her life.
MEET THE TEACHER
Hi! My name is Savannah Sumners. I am mom to two beautiful daughters, and wife to the silliest but most supportive man I know. I have been passionate about music from a young age and grew up taking classical piano lessons in Fairhope/Spanish Fort, Alabama for about 8 years. I competed in numerous competitions throughout the state and was crowned Alabama State Winner for piano one year. I also actively participated in singing and music in our church, and continue to do so.
In an effort to expose my daughters to music at a young age, I have become zealous about early childhood music development and its profound and positive affect on little minds. I was first introduced to the Clap for Classics curriculum by attending a toddler music class taught by Elizabeth Nixon (founder). My girls and I attended multiple sessions, and fell in love with her style of teaching. I am thrilled for the opportunity to base my classes on the Clap for Classics curriculum, knowing the quality music education it provides at such a young age.
All classes are held near County Line Road and Huntsville Brownsferry Road.
Current theme: All things winter! We will enjoy folk songs and classical music based on this white, magical, and chilly season.
Each child must have a caretaker with them, actively participating in class. Parents, grandparents, and babysitters are all welcome!
Please keep cell phones on silent mode. They may be used to take pictures and accept emergency phone calls only.
Please make every effort to have your child prepared for class before you arrive, i.e. bathroom, snack, well rested.
If you have two children you'd like to enroll in Beats & Beethoven classes, it would be ideal to enroll them individually in the class that best suits their age and development. However, if you need to enroll them in the same class, please discuss which class would be best. I can give insight into class enrollment and curriculum, to help you decide which class will benefit both of your kids the most!
