Music in the Box Class
Come see why this curriculum of preschool music classes is a wonderful prelude to successful music study. Children will sing, dance, and participate in activities that develop rhythmic pulse while meeting some new friends! Class is for child and parent/caregiver.
Preschool Music Classes at a Cost for Families
Though these classes appear to be ‘just fun,’ the curriculum is rich in musical content for the young child. The melodies children sing and dance to are the tunes many of them will later play at ages 4-7 on their chosen instrument, such as violin, piano, cello, or guitar. These classes are also truly wonderful for cultivating a family culture of music, instilling an early love of music, and for providing necessary experiences in matching pitch, rhythm, movement, and socialization through music. Must Register to attend. Ideal ages are 0 to 5 years old.
The Program – Music in the Box
Music development is built through rhymes, picture books and poetry, alongside rhythmic movement and tactile experiences.
This program is based on the principles of Dr. Maria Montessori and Dr. Shinichi Suzuki and prepares the children and their families for a lifetime with the joy of music. Featuring curriculum of Fiddle I Fee & Baby Beluga for Fall, I love You All the Time & Brown Bear for Winter then Victor Vito for Spring.
Parent or caregiver MUST ATTEND with the child.
Best for early walkers through age 5. If you’ve already taken MITB and your child is between 3 and 5 years old ready for the next step, then consider Music Masters!
