Music Together Supportive Family Class
For children ages 1-4 years with special needs and their siblings
Because music forges connections in the brain—integrating mind, body, and emotions—it can be beneficial to include music in therapeutic interventions for children with a range of language, cognitive, physical, emotional, social, and neurological needs and impairments.
Your child will learn basic music competence including rhythm, pitch, and melody while enjoying special bonding time with parents and caregivers, and meeting new friends!
