Hagerstown Junior College's Division of Continuing Education is holding a registration for three 10-week "Kinder Klasses" for the Spring 1998 semester.

The courses offered will be "Music for Parents and Babes," Music for 2's and 3's," and "Music for 4's and 5's."

"Music for Parents and Babes" allows parents to enjoy music with their six through 24-month-old child through movement, singing, and sound exploration activities. Parents learn new ways to introduce their baby to sound and music. The first class meets Feb. 9 in the Music Room at Paramount Elementary School.


In "Music for 2's and 3's" parents and children work together to explore sound and play instruments. Two classes that begin on Feb. 2 and 4 will meet in the HJC Kepler Theater while the third class will meet at the Paramount Elementary School in the music room on Feb. 4.

"Music for 4's and 5's" allows children to create their own music and explore instruments such as trumpet, violin and clarinet. The class begins Feb. 10 at the Kepler Theater and on Feb. 11 at Paramount Elementary School.

Parents of all Kinder Klasses receive "Music Notes," a weekly guide for home music fun. For information, call 301-790-2800, extension 236. Voice TDD.
