Also provided are opportunities for age-appropriate movement, with a focus on guiding children to move in a sustained, continuous, and relaxed way. Parents of children younger than three are required to participate with their children in class activities. Parents need not be musicians to enjoy what happens in class and to be of musical value to their child.
