We are so excited to offer music classes to the LLDSS community. Created and led by music therapist Rachel Rambach, this class is designed to instill and foster a love of music as well as develop basic skills for both musical growth and daily life.
The Listen & Learn curriculum is comprised of both original and familiar songs that you can start singing along with at the very first class. Activities are designed based on specific goals and objectives. Skills that are addressed through the Listen & Learn curriculum include (but are not limited to) fine and gross motor movement, rhythmic foundations, intonation, peer interaction, turn-taking, and academic concepts.
As a parent or caregiver, you are welcome to attend the class with your child to provide support and encouragement, or if you prefer, you can stay in the waiting room. Each 30-minute class combines structured activities (movement, singable stories, group instrument play, etc.) with free time for children to explore various instruments and interact with one another.
Payment can be made via PayPal or by check.
If you are using LLDSS funds, I am happy to invoice them directly.
