This video does a great job showing how everyday items can be used to create musical instruments, and most importantly, it shows fun ways to introduce young children to music.

The featured image, shown on the main page, is of a Xylophone, which is a great musical instrument for babies and toddlers.

As children explore music through play, they make discoveries about themselves and the world around them. Our music course for Kids (ages 4-5) introduces young children to the world of music, helping to establish a foundation for musical ability. We offer a free trial lesson, with group music classes and private music lessons at our music center or online.  We provide music lessons to students of all ages and skill levels in Citrus Heights and surrounding areas, including Fair OaksOrangevaleRosevilleNorth Highlands, and Sacramento.
