RATED TOP MUSIC CLASS IN TORONTO by SavvyMom.Ca, Music in the Barns Early Childhood Music Program at the Artscape Wychwood Barns is designed to introduce children to the fundamentals of classical music in a fun and playful setting.
Children will learn, sing and play a wide variety of percussion instruments while encouraging interaction, exploration and discovery. Children enjoy music-making through singing, live instrument demonstrations (cello, violin, piano), favorite melodies and playful movement activities.
