Seeing the children’s bright eyes sparkle while they are enjoying their music class is very rewarding. It is very important to teach the basics of rhythm and musical terms as well as solfege (do re mi) at an early age. It builds a musical foundation that can be applied to ANY instrument the child may choose to play later on.
