Now in its fifth year, Pathways to Music offers an exciting opportunity for children and parents to discover the joy of music while singing, moving, listening, dancing and playing. Each class is a combination of age-appropriate musical activities including songs, finger plays, dances, bouncing games, circle games, instrument exploration, lullabies and more. In a playful manner, children will be gaining a wide appreciation of music while developing language, motor, creative and social skills.
