Kids MusicRound Class

A music and movement class for infants, toddlers and preschoolers along with their parents or caregivers that promotes musical learning across ages.  Activities includes playing rhythmic instruments, having fun with finger plays and singing and dancing to music of different meters and tonalities.  A mixed-age setting allows children the freedom to develop basic skills like singing in tune and keeping an accurate beat at their own pace.  Since there is no set age for these skills to be acquired, these classes provide a non-performance opportunity for musical exploration that the whole family can enjoy

Benefits of the Kids MusicRound program include:

  • Early music competence
  • Bonding between children and parents or caregivers as they learn to play musically together
  • Social development
  • Physical development: children move their bodies during class
  • Language development: through early exposure to music which studies show promotes language development

Each class meets once a week for 10 weeks.  The first class will begin in September, although exact dates have not yet been set.  To get more information, please fill out the form below or contact Karen Smith at ksmith@empower-wny.org or (716) 297-0798, x 163 or x189.
