In this mixed age (4-10 years) and abilities class, children and a caregiver will explore music by playing instruments, moving to music, reading musical stories, and by bringing their own joy of music to the group. All musical activities are focused on supporting social and emotional development such as emotional regulation, impulse control, turn taking, and leadership skills. Caregivers and parents will also learn ways to incorporate music at home with their children!
