Flora Tolomei, a volunteer, has been providing music enrichment to our children on Wednesday afternoon (after snack) each week. The children and staff are thrilled to engage in this participatory learning experience. We are grateful to Flora for sharing her talent with our young ones.
Content of the program at White Plains Children’s Center: while exploring various instruments, the children will be exposed to a variety of music styles—everything from Classical to Cajun Zydeco. The instruments that they will get to enjoy throughout the session will include a Chilean Rain Stick, an Accordion, a violin and others that I have collected over the years. Also using different rhythm instruments, the children will learn about rhythm and tonal patterns. Additionally, we will explore the different music styles through dance, movement stories, finger play, ribbon twirls and scarves.
Goal of the program at White Plains Children’s Center: to introduce the children to different music styles, instruments, rhythms and tonal patterns while initiating a lifelong love of beautiful music
