Music & Movement

The Music and Movement for Young Children program introduces children to experiencing music before learning to read music. Classes will emphasize voice and movement through singing games/dances, beat and rhythm through body percussion. The MMYC instruments (xylophones, drums, tambourines, wood blocks, etc.) are used to bring the child to an understanding of beat and rhythm.
