Stimulating their musical intelligence, the early childhood family Class offers a nurturing environment where children stimulate their musical inclinations with social, emotional, kinesthetic and linguistic developments. Music foundations of pitch, dynamics, rhythm, tempo and structure are delivered in a friendly environment that allows interaction between siblings and friends.
