Interactive Workshops @ Schools
Classics 4 Kids will come to your classroom for a 45 minute hands-on, interactive presentation. These assemblies foster creative thinking, cultural awareness and problem solving in a fun, educational environment. Our four workshops are available year-round, including summer, and are aligned with California Common Core standards for science, math and reading.
Professional musicians, hands-on instruments and arts/crafts activities bring smiles to the children, families and medical staff at Rady Children’s Hospital and the Ronald McDonald House.
