What is Discovery Early Childhood Music Class?
Discovery Early Childhood Music Education classes are designed for children ages 4-7 and promote development through musical and social engagement. Class activities include singing, chanting, moving to music, playing assorted percussion instruments, and developing fundamental aural and rhythmic skills. Following Discovery, when a young musician is ready to choose an instrument, we can assist in the selection process and recommend one of our master teachers.
Why are early childhood music classes important?
To answer this question, we should think about our body and, in particular, our brain. The brain is our supercomputer, and, like any computer, we have to program it. As our body grows, so does our brain. Therefore, teaching our brain advanced, complex patterns starting at a young age and throughout our growth and development will open up neurological pathways and set the stage for endless possibilities.
Simply put, music further develops a child's brain, and the earlier a musical education journey begins, the better! This is where Discovery comes into play. Discovery lays the foundations upon which a child can start to play an instrument throughout his/her growth years in a fun, socially engaging weekly class.
Included with Discovery:
Complimentary Annapolis Symphony Orchestra concert access (Live or Online via Symphony+)
