Look What I Can Do!

Engage in fun musical play activities such as chanting, listening and playing simple percussion instruments and help develop a strong musical bond with your child. Movement activities develop balance, coordination, self-expression and body control and bridge the natural connection between music and movement. Instrument exploration encourages creativity and builds eye-hand coordination as well as confidence. These activities lay the foundation for singing and dancing and further musical development.
