Music Classes To Grow On

Created by the music faculty of Third Street Music School, Music To Grow On introduces young children to the joy of early music, movement and dance participation.  Drawing inspiration from the very best approaches to early childhood music education (Kodaly, Dalcroze, Orff and Suzuki), Music To Grow On offers young children and their parents a range of musical experiences to share and enjoy. Children love taking one, two or three classes simultaneously, creating their own musical menus. Classes are designed for infants through five-year-olds. Register for the full year or by semester.
