A Musical Note from Ms. Janet; Lower School Music Teacher
Music plays a powerful role in the lives of young children. In a quality early childhood program, music activities simultaneously promote development in multiple domains. Music shared with others in singing, dancing, and playing instruments together, is by its very nature a social experience. Music lends itself to cooperation, building relationships, sharing feelings and helps build social and emotional skills.
Most importantly, sharing music with the people they love makes very young children feel cherished and important.
I am so happy that I have this opportunity to play with your children in music. Together, we will explore the different aspects of music: singing, moving expressively and rhythmically, playing classroom instruments, creating music, listening appreciatively and learning to value music as a part of everyday life. Most importantly we have fun!
