Mommy and Me Sing

All children are musical! They are born with skills to excel in music, but this will diminish if the child is not exposed to different music techniques. According to leading early childhood researchers most musical skills are learned from birth to the age of nine. Children can still learn some musical skills after the age of nine, but sense of pitch and rhythm is established by age nine. To foster children’s pitch and rhythm, it is important to give them an environment of singing and moving. These classes will teach your child (and you!) simple songs, continuous movements, how to keep a beat, and rhymes. Age 2-Pre-K.
