MUSIC AND MOVEMENT FOR TODDLERS
Music and Movement is a perfect and fun way to introduce young children to music! Children will learn songs, nursery rhymes, develop inhibitory control, use a variety of instruments, and enjoy energetic movement while in class. Class time will involve interspersing fast and slow movements, moving and stopping, as well as discussing and identifying high sounds, low sounds, exploring the many moods of music, their aspects they relate to, and more! This class is intended for children between the ages of 2 and 3 years old.
We will have two different different sessions. The first one from January 12th to February 23rd. The second session from March 2nd to April 20th. We are currently deciding on a time based on what works best for those who are interested. If you are interested, please select all times that will work for you in the form down below.
