Music is best learned if informal music guidance is begun as early in life as possible. In Music Play classes, students are exposed to a playful and rich musical environment that nurtures their music development needs with singing, chanting, moving, creating, and listening. Experienced teachers musically interact with each student, guiding them through the music learning stages with individualized instruction and engaging group activities.
