First Steps in Music

The Music Ministry is so excited to offer this program designed especially for little ones from infants through two years of age. The First Steps in Music classes are held during an eight week session that begins in August and runs through the first week of October.

We invite parents to come and spend some special musical time with your children as we move, sway, sing, and play instruments. Besides developing musical gifts, these special music classes will help your child build language skills and help him/her become a good listener.

These first steps in music making will help your child’s physical and mental development in all areas and it will give you an opportunity to get to know and fellowship with other parents. The classes are thirty minutes long and are offered to all parents with little ones free of charge.
