Early childhood is the perfect times to nurture children’s natural musicality and to encourage singing, moving, and playing with sound. Music inspires creative movement. It calms at rest time. It fosters listening skills. Through music children can learn about patterns, rhymes and new vocabulary.
Our music teachers are all unique in creating playful environments that are musically rich and allow children to engage in music as an exploratory activity, one that is interactive, social, creative, and joyful. This is just what young children need to develop a love of music!
Join one of our fabulous music teachers for a super fun, joyful and enriching music activity. From drumming to singing, dancing and instrument play, all of our music classes at Books and Cookies will delight your little ones!
