In this class, Sarah will introduce young students to the joys of music making and creativity through singing, movement games, and improvising on instruments. Students will have fun as they listen to and  "show" the patterns with their voices and bodies. By doing so, they will begin to internalize beat, as well as  rhythmic and melodic patterns. Students will also spend time acting out stories and sight words, taking turns listening, watching others, and actively engaging. The classes are also a great way to develop fine motor, verbal and literacy skills, as well as confidence.

*This is a drop off class and students must be potty-trained.
