Music for Toddlers

Check us out on Facebook!

This is a class for 1-2 year olds. The class helps children experience the world around them through singing, movement, listening, playing, and creating music. Children will have an opportunity to play simple musical instruments (rhythms sticks, drums, tone bars, and shakers), engage in listening games, sing songs, and learn simple dances. Parents will be able to watch their children’s musical growth, expand their child’s musical repertoire, and learn activities to do at home.
