Cost: $10 (1 class) for one child and their caregiver.
Ages: 2 - 5
Location: Whipple Hall Conference Room (429 Main Street, New London)

While children sing, listen to music, play, and move to music, they will learn basic music concepts and develop essential music skills such as beat competency, singing on pitch and understanding rhythm. These skills will become the foundation of future music study and a life-long enjoyment of music. This class will include music-based stories, playing rhythm instruments, exploring the sounds our voices make, singing, dancing, and creative movement activities. As you have fun and bond with your child during class, you will also develop your own music skills and learn ways to bring more music to your home. Experience pure joy as you share music with your child and hear my favorite words: “Again, Again!”
