Music for the Very Young

Early childhood music education exposes children to many different kinds of music and movement with a fun curriculum proven to enhance brain activity.

Every child is musical. Through musical play, we encourage children's musical, cognitive, social and emotional development.

Child/caregiver group sessions help children develop tonal and rhythmic awareness while building skills in the physical, interpersonal, and language domains.
