“Pay attention to what your children are fascinated by, and praise them for their effort.” -Carol Dweck (Researcher and Author of Mindset)

Parents and children participate in a weekly interactive music class in which young children develop rhythmic and melodic awareness, memory and social skills. Teachers and parents work together to build a repertoire of lullabies, action songs and nursery rhymes in the child’s environment through repetition and positive reinforcement. Parents and children listen to their curriculum CD at home and repeat the songs and rhymes daily.

Parents become skilled observers of their own children. Children observe the actions of teachers, their parents, other children of various ages and gradually begin to imitate them. This sequential and gradual growth is celebrated and enjoyed as each new development is observed.

The outcomes of these activities are listening skills, increased vocabulary, socially acceptable behavior and sensitive group participation at an early age.  These skills serve as an excellent preparation for involvement in a school environment,  membership in other classes, and music lessons of any kind.
