Music for Early Childhood

Teaching artists introduce students to the world of music using developmentally appropriate songs, creative movement, rhymes, and music vocabulary.

We deepen children’s school experience by offering positive and fun music programming through developmentally appropriate songs, creative movement, rhymes, and music vocabulary. We are the dedicated music program provider for these organizations.

Seeing all twenty children in our classroom get so excited every Wednesday to learn songs, play music and dance has been by far the cutest thing to see all year! They have learned rhyming and rhythm. They can follow the beat to music and have learned about repetition. They have also been taught new songs that we haven’t sang in the class yet. It is always exciting to have music in the classroom! We absolutely love seeing how all our children want to participate every Wednesday morning!

We started every class doing affirmations, stuff like “I am strong”, “I am capable”, “I can do hard things!” And by the end of the year they would get so stoked from doing the affirmations that the little kids were screaming “I AM STRONG” with such enthusiasm that it made me laugh every single class. Growth moments like that were some of my favorite parts.
