With a curriculum of both traditional and Christ-centered songs, children embrace opportunities for movement playing a variety of musical instruments and using speech in rhythm. Classical music forms the background for a wealth of experience for beat and rhythm sensitivity and free/structured movement. As German composer Carl Orff has said, “The work of children is play”.
