Whereas some music classes focus on teaching to the little musician, Music with Mar. classes teach to the whole child using music. A good music foundation for later on as well as an all around good academic foundation is laid out through the use of well thought out lyrics and movements.
Music with Mar. is a class where a caregiver and a child participate in music together using activities that enhance the four main areas of development-cognitive, social, motor and language. (THE ADULT attending MUST be able to participate with the child for the child to get the full benefit of the program.)
Music with Mar. classes:
*focus on the total development of the child, and not on musicality
*know that children learn best through play and activation of many senses
*provide an environment where the parent and child are comfortable
*help children start to understand how to behave in this setting.
*a class can be brought to parent/teacher groups on request
*Class length is 45minutes
*Adult attends with Child
