Early Childhood Music

Did you know that babies start learning music as soon as they are born? They start hearing musical sounds and internalize them until they feel comfortable enough to make their own sound — similar to the way they learn language. Come foster your child's music-making this summer with a week-long musical experience for parent and child. We will sing, chant and move together all while using engaging props and manipulatives. This session will be offered to babies and toddlers ages 0–5.

  • Tuition: $80
  • Dates: July 16–19
  • Time: 9–10 a.m.
  • Ages: 0–5 with parent/guardian participant
