Music playschool – Interaction, Learning by Hearing, Creative Expression
Music playschool is for 0 – 6 years old children. Children have a natural ability to search and find new ways to act more creatively and we want to support this intrinsic creativity from a very young age. Interaction, learning by hearing, and creative expression are essential for rhythm music. They together form a base for the rudimentary education of rhythm music. Living through music in a daily basis is important – every experience is valuable!
In music playschool, we offer different types of groups for pre-school children, who come to a lesson once a week, 45 minutes at a time. Visit our page in Finnish https://popjazz.fi/hae-opiskelemaan/musiikkileikkikoulu/ for more information and enrollment.
