Join Music Together in the Valley for a free demo session of its internationally recognized music curriculum for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers.

The demos run before the start of the Fall session, which begins Sept. 19. Demo classes are being held in Stillwater and locations throughout the Twin Cities area.

A schedule and registration of the free classes is available at www.musictogetherclasses.org/demo.

Demo classes are a great way to experience the fun and joy of Music Together classes. Music Together is an internationally recognized, research-based music curriculum for infants through 5-year-olds. During the 45-minute classes, children and adults share songs, rhymes, movement and instrument play, while bonding with their caregivers.

The program is based on the premise that all children are inherently musical and that music supports all learning. During early childhood, the brain is more sensitive and adaptable to its environment, and the Music Together program is designed to strengthen the neural networks essential to music and overall development.

Research shows that Music Together classes nurture creativity, self-expression, and confidence while supporting social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development.

The goal of this class is for students to see their environment to yield photographs suitable for framing. Students will be encouraged to use their photographic equipment to its fullest, rather than rely on the “automatic” settings.*

Students will gain a basic understanding of aperture, shutter speed, and ISO, and how these elements can be used to create a balanced exposure. The instructor also will address depth of field and its role in composition through an examination of photographic subjects such as landscape, close-up (macro), sports, architecture, and patterns.  Assignments will be given at the end of each class, and this work will be reviewed at the beginning of the next class meeting.

*Note:  Students must have a basic knowledge of the menu operations of their camera and an ability to navigate simple operations such as adjusting aperture, shutter speed, and ISO level to take this class. Because of the numerous camera brands and models, class time will not be used to show students how to use their specific camera. Students may hire the instructor for personal instruction by contacting him directly at 801.718.1906.

Instructor Bob Lyksett has worked as a news photographer for an ABC affiliate in Salt Lake City, freelance photographer, and photographic instructor for the Park City School District, Utah. He enjoys photographing sports of all kinds. His work was most recently published on the cover and accompanying the cover story of the national magazine Rodeo News. Lyksett also has contributed outdoor and nature photography to other publications.

Join Music Together in the Valley for a free demo session of its internationally recognized music curriculum for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers.

The demos run before the start of the Fall session, which begins Sept. 19. Demo classes are being held in Stillwater and locations throughout the Twin Cities area.

A schedule and registration of the free classes is available at www.musictogetherclasses.org/demo.

Demo classes are a great way to experience the fun and joy of Music Together classes. Music Together is an internationally recognized, research-based music curriculum for infants through 5-year-olds. During the 45-minute classes, children and adults share songs, rhymes, movement and instrument play, while bonding with their caregivers.

The program is based on the premise that all children are inherently musical and that music supports all learning. During early childhood, the brain is more sensitive and adaptable to its environment, and the Music Together program is designed to strengthen the neural networks essential to music and overall development.

Research shows that Music Together classes nurture creativity, self-expression, and confidence while supporting social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development.

The goal of this class is for students to see their environment to yield photographs suitable for framing. Students will be encouraged to use their photographic equipment to its fullest, rather than rely on the “automatic” settings.*

Students will gain a basic understanding of aperture, shutter speed, and ISO, and how these elements can be used to create a balanced exposure. The instructor also will address depth of field and its role in composition through an examination of photographic subjects such as landscape, close-up (macro), sports, architecture, and patterns.  Assignments will be given at the end of each class, and this work will be reviewed at the beginning of the next class meeting.

*Note:  Students must have a basic knowledge of the menu operations of their camera and an ability to navigate simple operations such as adjusting aperture, shutter speed, and ISO level to take this class. Because of the numerous camera brands and models, class time will not be used to show students how to use their specific camera. Students may hire the instructor for personal instruction by contacting him directly at 801.718.1906.

Instructor Bob Lyksett has worked as a news photographer for an ABC affiliate in Salt Lake City, freelance photographer, and photographic instructor for the Park City School District, Utah. He enjoys photographing sports of all kinds. His work was most recently published on the cover and accompanying the cover story of the national magazine Rodeo News. Lyksett also has contributed outdoor and nature photography to other publications.
