The Early Childhood Music Program at CSA provides a musical culture where children and their families create meaningful musical experiences. through singing, movement, instrumental exploration, games and musical play, children (and parents!) will experience a great variety of musical styles and genres, as well as develop their sensory awareness, language, motor cognitive and social skills. Our goal is to foster a passion for music, even from the earliest ages.
For a per-family fee of $135, children and their parents can register for EC Music Classes on a space-available basis. The Music Time and Music for the Young classes will meet approximately 3 times each month from mid-September through mid-December, and again February through April. Once a month, there will be a special young children’s music event on Saturday mornings (e.g. children’s drumming or xylophone ensemble time).
