Music and the arts at the CFSC
To complement and complete the robust academic curriculum, music and the arts at the Child and Family Study Center begin with the infants and toddlers and continue throughout the preschool years. Integrated throughout the day, children have opportunities to express creativity through a wide variety of media and music.
Movement to music, songs and chants (including cultural and folk), playing instruments, and exposure to instruments such as the violin, ukulele, keyboard, marimba and autoharp are examples of music experiences. BrainDance, a series of eight fundamental movement patterns, is also part of our music program. The eight fundamental movement patterns of BrainDance help "wire" the brain and lay the foundation for reading, writing, mathematics, socializing, and other healthy behaviors.
