Music Makers  |  Grades K-3

Students participating in our Music Makers group will have opportunities both to learn and perform. Students will sing as an ensemble and prepare songs for the Christmas concert, but will also focus on becoming comfortable performing individually as well. Students will learn and sing rounds, folk songs, musical stories, and move and dance. Solfege will be introduced and used as we learn to read music. Students will also have the opportunity to play melodic and rhythmic instruments in the classroom.

Music Makers is a general music class for children in Kindergarten through 3rd grade.


Diane Ryden is excited to join TCHA!  She taught elementary classroom and choral music in the Twin Cities for 14 years before stepping away from teaching full-time to raise a family and homeschool her kids.  Since then, Diane has stayed musically active by singing with Deo Cantamus and participating in the music ministry at church.  

Diane graduated from Augsburg College (BA in Music Education) and the University of St. Thomas (MA in Music Education with an Orff-Schulwerk certification).  She is passionate about helping her students develop their musical gifts to bring joy to others and to glorify the Lord!

 TCHA has enlisted the services of Active Network for our online registration. If you have run any charitable marathons you are probably familiar with Active Network. They have expanded beyond marathon registration to camps and classes, which is the specific service we use.

When you click any type of “register” button on the TCHA website, you will be redirected to our page within the Active Network. Here will find a list of our current classes.  Use the filters in the left column to find a specific type of class, grade level, what time a class meets or a particular tutor. You can register one child or multiple children in multiple classes; either way, you will have one convenient and secure check out process with options to pay in full or make a partial payment.

If you have any questions about our registration process, please contact Dana Piper, Executive Director.
