This December, we are thrilled to offer Little Jingles — a holiday mini-session for young children and their families. This session is designed for little ones, though there is no age limit. We will sing both original and familiar Christmas-themed songs, play with instruments, and get into the holiday spirit! This mini-session is 3 weeks in length, and includes a CD and song binder.
All classes are held at Music Therapy Connections,
located at 1234 Centre West Drive, Springfield, IL 62704.
