Why begin music classes at birth?
Research has proven that education is essential the first three years of your child's life because most brain development occurs during this period. If brain synapses are not made during this time, the connections will not be established for the future. Children who attended classes such as this one from birth through age three show many benefits, including increased vocabulary, good memorization skills, longer attention spans, and attentive listening, which all lead to better performance in school and a higher level of learning.
What will my child learn during music class?
• Attentive listening • Language • Memorization skills • Independence • Patience and taking turns • Counting • Creativity and composition • Motor skills • Communication • Rhythm (keeping a steady beat, tapping or playing simple rhythms) • Pitch skills (recognizing high and low, matching pitches) • Dynamics (loud and soft)

• How to observe your child and celebrate each small accomplishment and growth • How to give non-verbal encouragement and praise • Activities to do at home to bond with your child • How to create a good learning environment at home • Lullabies to calm your child at night
