Musical Aurora® for Ages 2-5 "Awakening the Mind through Music"™
Group Class, 45 Minutes, Once per week
Musical Aurora® is the number one music class for toddlers. This unique class involves a maximum of five students. Early classes in music enhance children’s natural creative impulses, helping them to develop the skills they need in order to communicate, concentrate, coordinate, cooperate and express themselves fully. Through songs, movements and playing musical games, the goal is to awaken the full creative and intellectual potential in each child. Parents or caregivers are required to sit in the classroom during class.
In some cases, students can take a private or semi-private Musical Aurora® class. These classes incorporate the same games and activities offered in the group Musical Aurora® class, but with more individual attention. Semi-private Musical Aurora® (45 minutes) is designed for two students and Private Musical Aurora® (30 minutes) is designed for one student. The director will advise you on which class best suits your child’s needs.
We offer a Free Musical Aurora® Sample Class Every Saturday!
