At Music-in-the-Box, we design each 6 week Music Masters theme with the "Child In Mind And The Theory Behind". Everything we do is based on building musical intelligence through the parent, teacher, child triangle so important in learning during the early developmental years. In the Music Masters classroom, children are engaged through all their senses simultaneously to reach each child through their strongest learning channel and develop the others. Language, Motor Skills and Cognitive Skills are all emphasized in everything we do.
We work with Occupational Therapists, Speech Therapists, and Education Professors to stay abreast of the latest research in Child Development and how Music can be used to enhance the development of the total child: Mind, Body & Senses. Our newsletters provide so much information on why we do what we do.
