Music and Movement

Full of energy, often on the move, always exploring and learning; together you will sing, chant, move, dance, listen, and play simple instruments, all actives that bridge the natural connection between music and movement.

Periwinkles is a delightful music class for babies and toddlers; and provides wonderful bonding between caregiver and the young child.

Our mixed-age class, Music for Families, is perfect for family music-making. Having families together with their caregivers singing, playing instruments, and dancing is absolutely magical. Older children are challenged to develop language skills and to use their imagination in new ways.
