Ages 4 years to 5 years

Songtogether Jungle & Move®

By this age your child starts to sing simple songs and phrases with more accuracy, as they gain the greatest control of their voice and their ability to change the way to pitch, dynamics and tempo. As their ability to hear, move and play to the beat improves, they can also begin experimenting with good rhythmic patterns. the child at this age can express himself by making up his own songs and moving very freely to music. At four the world of music will now really begin to open up for your child.
