Music

Our music program introduces children the concepts of music and movement. We use singing and movement to develop the basics of music theory and performance. Through song, story and the exploration of simple instruments such as claves, shakers, tambourines, and drums; children are introduced to concepts such as “beat”, “rest”, Solfege (Do, Re, Mi)! Children get to explore different genres of music and develop coordination through movement, instrumentation, singing, and body percussion! Our goal is to engage every child’s imagination to develop an early love for music
