At The Vocal Gymnasium we use the Musikgarten program which is a Family
based music program for Children (newborn to five years old) and their families. All of our music classes involve both parent and child for special bonding and developing musical skills in a fun and creative atmosphere.
In our classes we use singing and dancing with various folk songs and common familar songs from around the world. We explore instruments tapping out beats and playing to songs as a group. We use tonal and rythym patterns to introduce basic harmony and rhythym. Your child is learning basic music skills while having fun in a playful creative environment. We will dance, move and sing to simple folks, rock and spiritual songs with guitar and various instruments. The program includes fingerplays, body awareness, as well as, big and small gross motorskills development.
