Young Musicians @ BOP STOP - T, 11:15am (Summer 2017)

This unique Dalcroze inspired offering invites children to learn music through body movements. It encourages students to explore music by associating familiar motions such as walking and running with the rhythm of music. Activities involving singing and playing help children to develop listening, improvisation and coordination skills. Notes: Please wear comfortable clothing as you will be sitting on the floor with your child.
