All children are musical and even young children can sing in tune, keep a beat and develop listening skills. We believe that creating music is the most powerful way to learn. Complex music concepts are best learned in a fun, interactive environment through sing-alongs, dancing, rhythm play,listening and games.
Music education is good for the mind. Experts agree that music can strengthen children's minds and serve as a fundamental skill of learning. Music helps to develop memory skills, stimulates brain connections and can actually make children smarter. In addition, new research suggests that primary music development occurs before age six.
The Little Music Makers program, designed specifically for pre-school aged children, offers quality music classes that allow children to learn the fundamental concepts of music in an educational, interactive and entertaining environment.
Weekly classes give children a solid foundation and help develop a life-long love of music. Activities such as songs, finger play, nursery rhymes, movement, rhythm games and instrument play are designed to develop competency in tonality and rhythm.
