Toddlers and Tykes Make Music
This is the “first step” in our early childhood music program and is for our youngest toddlers/tykes and their parents. In this class you and your toddler/tyke will learn delightful songs, dances and musical activities that focus on singing and keeping a beat to enhance timing, coordination, listening and language skills. High- quality percussion instruments are used as well as puppets, stories and colorful props to make this a very special music time. Repetition assists language development and memory, and improves coordination and timing. Helps children express their feelings productively, and develops their imagination and ability to focus. Please bring the music kit to each class. At-home participation with your kit is the key to the full benefits of the program.

Early Childhood Music and Movement Program

The Music Rhapsody program, developed by internationally renowned music educator Lynn Kleiner, addresses each age and stage of childhood development. It meets your child exactly where he or she is. Beautiful, diverse songs, singable phrases, repetition with variety, the use of instruments, puppets and visuals all foster the love of music in an exciting and creative environment. It is a program that, to its core, acknowledges and values the input and creativity of each and every child. Lynn Kleiner"
