Ages 3 years to 4 years

Songtogether beat & Clock®

By three years of age your child will be singing very simple songs and phrases with some accuracy, as they gain greater control of their voice and their ability to change to pitch, dynamics and tempo. As their ability to hear, move and play to the beat improves, they can also begin experimenting with simple rhythmic patterns. A three year old can express himself by making up his own little songs and moving freely to music. At four the world of music will really begin to open up for your child.
