Music in Me (Session 1)
In this class children and caregivers explore the universal language of music with instruments, movement, and songs. Early exposure to music in this playful environment positively impacts children’s cognitive, social and emotional development. Students experience percussion, string and wind instruments in developmentally appropriate ways, as well as begin to find “instruments” and music all around them in everyday life. Children observe, sing, dance and play along in this nurturing environment, absorbing musical concepts that lay important groundwork for development of the whole child as well as future music study if desired.
This class is taught by Rebecca Wierks in collaboration with the Holland Symphony Orchestra. Rebecca has a bachelor’s degree in music, and currently teaches Kindermusik classes and private music lessons in Holland.
