Developed to build attention and self-expression, activities include singing, chanting, moving, focused listening, musical games, exploring musical instruments, creative movement and storytelling. The Cycle of Seasons nurtures a growing child’s ability to use language and participate in dramatic play within a musical context. Fun family packets including wonderful music CDs are included for use at home to increase family involvement in the learning process. (www.musikgarten.org)
