Early Childhood Music Classes 2016-17
Concordia Conservatory embraces the philosophy that all children are musical and therefore can achieve basic music competence, and that the best learning environment is one that is playful, developmentally appropriate, and musically rich. Listening, singing, moving, and playing percussion instruments, are key activities leading to reading and notating music. Through creative, engaging music play, children are given the foundation for a comprehensive music education and the tools to express themselves artistically.
