Kids Music Thera-Play with Miss PJ: Preschool (Age 3-5)

$20.00

Caregivers must be present for the first 10 minutes of each class; not required to participate, although required to intervene if needed by the teacher. Caregivers must return for the final 5 minutes of class. Siblings up to 7 yo can participate with purchase of additional child ticket. 

  • This engaging group led by PJ will explore rhythmic activities and creative play to help enhance cognitive, social, and motor skills.  We will be using our imaginations and will have plenty of opportunities to express our autonomy.  Think songs and games regarding colors, numbers, feelings, and taking turns with peers.
  • Developmentally, this group is a bit further along in their motor skills (jumping/hopping, hand/eye coordination, balancing, dressing, etc.).  Socially this group demonstrates working well with peers and discovery of empathy.  This age group is starting to understand things like complex language structures and pretend play.

WHAT IS MUSIC THERAPY?
Music Therapy is the evidenced-based practice of using music as the medium while working in a therapeutic relationship with the client to reach non-musical goals. These goals can encompass developmental, cognitive, social, emotional, or sensory needs.

PHILOSOPHY
We believe in the ability and need for creative expression in all people. We take a person-centered approach to music therapy by celebrating and building on the strengths of individuals while also supporting them in achieving wellness goals through music intervention.  We strive to create and foster a safe environment where each client can reestablish their relationship with themselves through curiosity and vulnerability.
