Music for Children & Youth

Praising God through music is a huge part of what we do here at Incarnation. There are many opportunities for your child to start praising the Lord through music and song at an early age! From music at our Preschool to elementary vocal and bell choirs, to our middle and high school vocal and bell choirs, we believe that our children lead us in worship when they are using their gifts of song.

Preschool & Elementary Age

Primary Music

Mondays and Tuesdays, beginning fall 2018

Incarnation offers age appropriate music classes for three – five year olds. Two 10-week sessions (Fall and Winter/Spring) are offered. Children must be three by the start of classes. This program offers young children a way to experience music while having fun! This class also creates a transition to singing in Joyful Noise. The music activities are sequenced according to the developmental needs of the children. Lessons include movement, listening, vocal development, and playing instruments.
