Vet Kat Musiekstudio has been with Harvest Seedlings for 7 years, Susan the music instructor comes to school weekly on a Wednesday and has an interactive lesson with all the children, starting from 2 years old. Her lessons are fun and children really enjoy learning to read music and understand rhythm and beat. Music ignites all areas of child development and skills for school readiness, including intellectual, social-emotional, motor, language, and overall literacy. It helps the body and the mind work together. Exposing children to music during early development helps them learn the sounds and meanings of words. Dancing to music helps children build motor skills while allowing them to practice self-expression. For children and adults, music helps strengthen memory skills. In addition to the developmental benefits, simply put: music brings us joy.
