Early Childhood Music Classes

Philosophy: Mrs. Misty believes that music is learned in much the same way that language is learned.  Just as children learn to speak from being in a rich, language-filled environment, children become musical through exposure to a rich, music-filled environment.  Like language acquisition, musical development occurs sequentially, moving through stages of listening, vocal exploration, and music babble, which eventually lead to beat competency, accurate singing, and instrument playing.
