Thank you for joining us for Denise’s very first webinar “Practical Lessons and Activities for a Post-COVID Music Class”.


Denise will share suggestions for individual instrument kits and do activities with them. She’ll also demonstrate activities for creating and responding that you can do while your kids are spaced apart. This will be a practical, hands-on, activity-based session. BYOI – Bring your own instrument (rhythm sticks recommended)!


Chat will be unavailable until 15 minutes before the session starts. Please remember to be respectful! In addition to the questions that were submitted a few days ago, we will also be taking a few questions during the session. Please use the ask a question function instead of typing your question into the chat. Our moderators are quick but they may miss the question if you post it in the chat!

Technical Issues

If you are experiencing any technical issues, please refresh the page and be patient. We are anticipating a large number of participants which may slow down the service.

Looking for more?! Consider joining us at Artie & Denise 2020: An Online Odyssey.

Join Artie Almeida, Denise Gagne, and their guests this summer for a three-day online music education adventure!

As much as we had been looking forward to singing, moving, and playing together in Indianapolis this July, our more urgent wish is to help keep everyone safe and healthy during these uncertain times. We have made the difficult decision to move our symposium online. You can expect brand new live-streamed lessons, a fabulous montage of Artie & Denise’s “greatest hits” taken from 10 years of fun workshops, and several very special guests.
