Classes for Toddlers & Preschoolers
Classes will give children the opportunity to play a variety of instruments including percussion, strings, keyboard, winds, and their own voices. Children will use percussion instruments - bells, rhythm sticks, sand blocks, shaker eggs, maracas, tambourines, drums - to learn to feel and copy rhythms. Familiar songs, along with new child-friendly songs, will be taught to promote the development of the child's fine motor, cognitive, communication, sensory awareness, social, and motor skills. Activities will promote joint attention, learning to follow directions, making choices, imitating sounds and words, and concepts such as colors and counting. Parents and/or caregivers are encouraged to support their child's participation while experiencing the joy of music together! This is a great way to promote the adult/child bond.
