Each week you’ll see how music helps your family laugh together, share and take turns in this multi-age (newborn up to seven years old), multi-child class. A class where all your children, regardless of age, are welcome to participate together, a class that promotes the social skills necessary for a family to strengthen its emotional bond. In this curriculum, families will sing, dance, and move their way through an exploration of several elements of music: beat and rhythm, concepts and contrasts (such as staccato and legato, high and low, the major scale, and arpeggios), the human voice, instrument families, and ensemble.
