• MUSIC

Children love music.

Music has the power to soothe and calm a child or elicit joy and giddy merriment. However, studies show that the long term effects of music in a child’s life go much deeper. Children who are actively involved in music typically do better in reading and in math, are better able to focus and to control their bodies, play better with others and have higher self esteems. At Starbright we integrate music across the curriculum. Every day includes music appreciation time. During music appreciation children listen to new songs and melodies, learn to hear the beat and try fun new dances. Musical part of the day takes places in our spacious multi-purpose room, to the sounds of a live piano. To show off what they learned throughout the year, each group performs for their parents during the Mother’s Day Recitals in the spring.
