Movers & Shakers is a great class for a busy little person!
Each week we will use a different theme; Odd Socks, Favourite Colour, etc.. to learn about the many aspects of music. Throughout the 8 weeks your child will get hands on with rhythm instruments & will be introduced to musical signs & symbols that are used regularly in music. We will also have fun with Time Signatures, & use them to create rhythms using many fun instruments. Designed for children age 2-4 years.
This 8-week series is held at Enchanted Forest every Tuesday from 10-10:30am starting October 3 and ending November 21. There will be no class on Remembrance Day. All instruments and materials are provided. $67 for the series when using credit card or PayPal for online or in-store registrations ($65 if registering and paying in-store with cash or debit).
