Each year, the Schubert Club hosts inexpensive KidsJam homeschool workshops at the Landmark Center. These events sell out fast, so it is a good idea to plan ahead. Here is the schedule for the 2018/2019 season. Extend the visit by exploring the Schubert Club Museum while you are there.
What to Expect from KidsJam Homeschool Workshops
Workshops last 60-minutes and are interactive sessions that are designed to help students experience musical performances but also get involved through creative activities and movement. They will also learn about the background of the music. The workshops are designed for kids ages 5-12. Parents accompany their children.
