Each child participates at his or her own level in singing, moving, chanting, listening, watching, or exploring musical instruments. Any caregivers—parents, grandparents, nannies—can bring children. The whole family is welcome for this important family music experience. Regular classes are held at Soulshine Arts https://www.soulshineartsct.com/
