NEL BLU DIPINTO DI BLU, Italian is fun! – 0 TO 4

For children 0-4 years old.

Music, colour, storytelling, movement and lots of fun all in Italian with an Italian musician educator specialised in early years.

OUR CLASSES ARE DIFFERENT! WHY?

Based on an extensive body of infant research and early year music education, our course focuses on children’s natural music attitude development. Music, among others, supports language and communication which is why we use it as the main tool to facilitate and support the acquisition of the Italian language.

In this way, children are exposed to a rich music environment and can interact with adults and their peers through sounds, voice and body movement in a holistic experience that promotes both language and musical development.

The sessions are led by Monica and Tiziana, both Italian musicians and early year specialists, that will interact with the participants using singing, moving, musical instrument and proms.

EVERY TUESDAY 10.00AM – 11.00AM at Highbury Park Music (N51TH)
