An early childhood music education program nurtures a child's social and musical development while enhancing the bond between parent and child. Classes incorporate movement, singing, listening activities, and playing percussion instruments. Children attend classes with their parents while they sing, dance, play rhythm instruments, and engage in chants and nursery rhymes that delight their senses and help them develop social and listening skills. All of these activities enrich the child's musical, motor, and aural development while they increase the bond between adult and child.
