Around the World in Song! will give children ages 4-6 (or 4-8) an appreciation for music, build confidence through singing, and introduce students to languages. The Kodaly-inspired lessons will teach children basic music concepts, introduce foreign languages & cultures, and give students the opportunity to perform.
