MUSIC THERAPY

Music ignites all areas of child development, including the cognitive, verbal, physical and social-emotional skills to improve school readiness. It encourages the body and mind to work together and develops positive behaviors that your child will carry with them beyond kindergarten. Exposing children to music during early development gives them additional tools to learn crucial skills, such as the sounds and meanings of words, enhanced motor functions and strong memory skills.

 

While music facilitates effective adaptation of the skills below, it also infuses students with joy, which they are encouraged to express through movement and creating music themselves. Introducing these creative forms of learning and interacting to your child as early as possible opens developmental doors that may not be available to them in a traditional school readiness program.

MUSIC TOGETHER PROGRAM

Untitled design (29).png

Kids in Rhythm is excited to incorporate Music Together into its inclusive preschool programs. Music Together is an early childhood music and movement program for children from birth through age eight—and the grownups who love them! First offered in 1987, these music classes help little ones develop their innate musicality—and much, much more.

 

The early childhood music curriculum has decades of research behind it, in both music education and child development. We know what we're talking about, and we're good at what we do! And because we recognize that children learn through play, we make everything we do in class engaging and fun.
