Music Play

Music Play classes at the USC’s Children’s Music Development Center are part of an innovative program designed to develop the music potential of young children from newborns to three-year-olds.

Music is naturally learned if informal music play and guidance are begun as early in life as possible. Through USC’s Music Play classes children and adults of all ages engage in fun, playful, socially interactive music activities that include singing, chanting and moving. The goal of the program is to help children increase their music aptitudes and develop initial music skills that prepare them for a lifetime of music enjoyment and appreciation. Learn more about children’s music responses.
