Music in Motion
Music in Motion classes offer young children the opportunity to discover the joy of making music as individuals as well as members of a group. The classes also provide a foundation for development of musical aptitude by exposing children to a music environment at the two most critical ages (0-3 years and 4-6 years old) for maximum growth to be realized in the later years. Songs, finger plays, dances, circle games, rhythmic exercises, and whole body movement are incorporated into a positive, cumulative musical experience. These activities also strengthen coordination and increase language skills as well as social development. Creative expression is encouraged which stimulates imagination. The classes are designed so that students can participate from ages 2-5 and enjoy new songs and materials throughout that time.
Classes will meet for one hour per week. The children will learn lots of songs and also accompany themselves with a variety of musical instruments such as rhythm sticks, maracas, drums, castinets, jingle tappers, cymbals, claves and cymbals to name a few.
Our society has become a global society. Being Bi-Lingual has become more and more important, whether in a social environment or or a professional one. We are offering Spanish classes right now and they will be taught by Aux 3 Pommes, to insure the highest quality instruction. Aux 3 Pommes will utilize methods such as games, songs, drama, movies and hands on projects to make learning the language fun.
