Hands On! A Musical Experience offers age-appropriate music classes for children ages 4 months to 5 years using a specially formatted, instrument-based music curriculum. Our classes introduce children to musical concepts, instruments and activities that enhance other learning such as the acquisition of language, listening skills, auditory discrimination, social understanding and personal discovery. Hands On! classes are designed to include music, story, movement and the exploration of various musical instruments that children can see and touch.
