Music Immersion Program
Why is Music Important? Research has shown that music is beneficial for all age groups. However, from before birth and through early childhood our brains are developing new neural connections at an extremely rapid rate. If you want to pick one activity to stimulate and enhance this process, music is it.

What will my child do in Music?

2-3 year groups
We are extending our repertoire, learning to demonstrate the beat, using physical actions, introducing basic rhythm and discovering our singing voice. Experimentation with percussion instruments is also a highlight for this age.
3-4 year groups
We are extending our repertoire, refining our beat demonstration, discovering, naming and representing basic rhythmic patterns. We are discovering the difference between our speaking and singing voice. These children will work well as a group and enjoy learning from engaging with each other as well as with adults.
