The nonprofit community music and theatre arts school is offering free early childhood music classes starting Tuesday, Dec. 11 through Dec. 14 for infants and children one to five-years-old.
“Music Makers” for ages five to six gives children the opportunity to sing and dance together, learn graphic notation and how to play in an ensemble with both percussion and limited tonal instruments.
Apple Tree Arts is where children experience the joy of music making. Active music making has been proven to help build brain power, support language development and help with the development of coordination, fine motor and creative thinking skills. We use the critically acclaimed Musik Garten curriculum which provides students with a pathway to musical literacy through rhythmic and aural experiences.
Early childhood music classes also nurture critical listening and thinking skills, support pre-reading skills and assist with the understanding of math and spatial relationships.
Registration for the winter semester of the early childhood music program is ongoing. Classes are held for 10-weeks and begin in early January. Register today online at www.appletreearts.org using PayPal or call us at 508-839-4286 to use a credit card or mail-in the registration form with a check or credit card information or visit us at One Grafton Common.
