BEMIDJI — Headwaters Music and Arts will resume its Music and Movement class for young musicians, ages 5-8, from 4 to 4:45 p.m., Dec. 2 through Feb. 3, at Headwaters, 519 Minnesota Ave. NW.

Led by Suzuki-trained and long-time music teacher Julia Anderson, the eight-session class will explore music through songs and movement while introducing students to a variety of instruments, a release said.

"An exploratory group class, Music and Movement offers a positive and encouraging environment to explore the basic building blocks of music such as pitch, rhythm, and tempo through group songs, dance, and games," a release said.

This fall, students will have an opportunity to explore piano, (no practice at home is expected!) and if they plan to join for the winter and spring eight-session blocks they can expect to explore the recorder and then the violin and ukulele, respectively.

At the end of the fall block the group will have a showcase so that students can show off to friends and family what they have learned. There is a one-time fee for an instrument kit containing a shaker egg, kazoo and recorder which students can bring home after they are through.

The cost to participate is $150 per child and a $10 charge for the instrument kits, with limited financial assistance available.

Space is limited and advance registration is required. There will be no session on Dec. 21 or 28.
