Sing. Dance. Play.

Learn how to develop your child’s music appreciation, musical ear, motor skills, and cognitive function, all while doing fun, musical play. In this sing-along style class, the parent and child will learn up to 6 songs, the music alphabet, and will explore basic rhythms through movements and clapping. In addition to learning and building their appreciation of music, children will be able to interact and learn to communicate with other children their age through “sharing time” and group activities. This class helps parents learn how to interact musically with their child and how to incorporate fun music lessons at home. Each child will have the opportunity to make their own musical instrument and then use it in class!

IMPORTANT: A parent is required to attend and participate in the class with their child.
