This popular in-person class is designed to prepare the child for later instrumental studies or voice lessons. The group will play wood, metal, and shaker instruments, sing songs and echo songs, develop their listening skills (ear training), and work with creative movement and circle dances. Younger children love to observe and copy older children. Older students will help to lead the group in musical activities and songs. Everybody will have fun!
