Overview: Musical Beginnings

This class awakens children to the exciting world of music through singing activities, movement to music, drumming, listening to music of many styles, and exploring different instruments. A parent participates in the class with her or his pre-school age child to help build a family culture of music making together.

The first five years of life are a critical time for a child's musical development. Without proper musical activity during this window the brain will have difficulty later in life with musical concepts. This class is an excellent way to ensure that a child will later have success learning an instrument and enjoy music deeply for a lifetime.

"I like the curriculum of traditional songs interspersed with literature at the early levels. I'm especially impressed with how the Musical Beginnings feeds right into the next 2 levels."
