Macaroni Soup Sampler
Singing, story-songs, fingerplays, rhythmic movement and instrument play will expand a child's musical experience in a fun, non-threatening atmosphere. Accompanied by an adult, children learn new songs and refresh old favorites. Classes are education based: concepts such as color identification and music dynamics (high/low, fast/slow, loud/soft) are included in each developmentally appropriate curriculum. Everyone has fun! Each session has 10 classes unless otherwise noted.
