Bring out the musician hiding inside your child with this fun program that starts your little rocker on their way to learning rhythm, timing and melody. They'll have fun using clapping and tapping techniques to build coordination between hands and feet, moving to improvisational songs teach children to use their bodies as a rhythm keeper and popular rhymes introduce rhythm and phrasing principals. No special instruments are needed to have fun with this exciting program; you and your child will learn to make instruments like shakers, wood blocks and drums right in your home.

Developing a sense of how music works early helps children grow intellectually and creatively. It's proven that kids who have a solid foundation for musical principals learn better at school.
