Our classes are designed to encourage joy, fun, and active participation and play with a parent or caregiver through music, both Jewish and secular! Through singing games, fingerplays, poetry, rhythmic exploration, and movement, we help children find their singing voices and develop their musical 'ear' for matching pitches, their beat and rhythmic skills, exploration of artistic qualities in music, and their creativity.
We will be holding free trial classes on Feb. 4 and 5 as follows:
Feb. 4 from 9:20 am - 10:10 am for ages 2.5 - 4 years
