A circle of belonging

confirms for our youngest children that the world is good.

When we sing in harmony,

we learn to stay true to our own voice while listening deeply to those around us.

Today’s cutting edge:

collaboration, communication, critical thinking, and creativity.

Lifelong learning

begins with imaginative play

Harmony, dexterity, artistry, and focus

all contribute to a lifetime of music appreciation.
