Together with Heather PreSchool Adventure

Together with Heather Music classes are designed to instill a lifelong love of music, starting at a young age. Based on the understanding that children learn best through play, the focus is on being involved and having fun. The kids don’t even realize how much they’re learning! Besides early music concepts involving tempo, pitch, and rhythm, other important pre-school concepts such as sharing, turn-taking, and being brave are approached, all in a comfortable group setting where children are encouraged to participate at their own comfort level. In any given class you can expect dancing or movement, introduction to a new instrument, puppets or other visual props, and more – plus LOTS of original music that parents enjoy as much as the kids. You may be singing the songs for years to come…
