First Steps in Music
First Steps in Music is a free music class for children age three and up. Classes last approximately 40 minutes and run for 8-week sessions. Ms. Beth will provide a wide repertoire of age appropriate musical activities, songs, rhymes, movement and playing of simple instruments, as well as a weekly SongTale. Participation in music classes helps children develop accurate rhythmic and coordination skills, and sensitivity to the expressive qualities of music. It also helps the development of early literacy skills, socialization skills and their ability to follow directions. Above all, music enriches their lives and it is FUN! No registration is required - join us when you can make it! Check our calendar for class times.
