Early Childhood Music Programs
Why chose a music therapist-run music program for your child?
Music programs that are designed by music therapists involve so much more than just learning music!
Don't worry, you will still have lots of opportunity to practice singing and rhythm skills, explore instruments, dance, and everything else you would expect from a children's music class. But you'll also have a program that is designed specifically for the children attending, to address not only their current musical ability, but important developmental skills such as social interaction, communication, gross and fine motor skills, on-task behaviour, pre-academic knowledge and other skills that will benefit them in school and later in life. Music will be specifically chosen to provide the most benefit to the children, give them a diverse repertoire of tonalities, rhythms, and cultural music, as well as ensure that both children and adults involved will enjoy themselves.
Preschool and Day Care Music Classes
MasterworX Music Therapy is pleased to offer Preschool and Day Care Music Classes!
These classes will incorporate a wide variety of both children's and popular songs, and many different types of instruments. While the main focus will be practicing musical skills, other skills will be worked on, such as counting, spelling, spatial concepts, social skills, sharing and turn taking.
Programs are designed specifically for each site, taking into consideration their unique set up and needs, and is able to be adapted to include themes or goals from other aspects of the preschool or day care's program.
Family classes allow children and parents (or grandparents, aunts, uncles, or whomever else decides to attend with the child) alike to explore music and other important developmental skills through song, dance, instruments, and other engaging activities. A wide variety of music and developmental skills will be addressed during each class, along with plenty of opportunity to interact with other children and parents and grow closer as a family. Favourite songs of the participating families will be incorporated, along with familiar favourites and brand new songs!
