Music and Movement

Also taught by instructor Cynthia Reifsteck, the Music and Movement program introduces children to the basic elements of music (instruments, rhythm, pitch, dynamics, music styles and cultures) while also focusing on traditional preschool concepts. The class is designed to nurture the development of the whole child, emphasizing six major learning domains: physical, emotional, social, cognitive, language and musical. The focus of the curriculum is on process, not performance.

Early integration of music into a child's routine means improving his/her ability to think, reason, create and express. Exposure to music, especially in the early years, plays a crucial role in a child's musical, intellectual and social development, plus Music and Movement is fun!

Each week children will have the opportunity to play different types of instruments, learn new songs based on the theme, explore different movement activities and sensory items such as scarves, hula hoops, balls or streamers. This is a wonderful opportunity for children to interact and learn in a small group setting…and have a marvelous musical experience at the same time!

Classes are available for Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten students.
