Kindermusik registration open for kids 2-5
Kindermusik registration is open for children ages 2 to 5. Class size is limited and children will be accepted in order of registration.
“The weekly sessions for parent and child are a time of joyful participation for everyone,’’ said the instructor, Carol Berry. “Singing, moving, listening and playing rhythm instruments together fosters a musical bond between parent and child.”
The international program is designed to develop the whole child through the joy of music. Research has shown that music in a young child’s life stimulates brain development and is vital to their total development.
Registration is due by Feb. 6. Call Berry at 406-782-9837 to register, for the cost and details.
