Music with Alyssa!

These sessions were designed by a music therapist to encourage kids and caretakers to be part of the music by singing, moving, and creating your own lyrics to songs. Preschool children may need assistance to follow directions. No instruments needed but grab any noisemakers at home (shakers, drums, etc.) for more fun!

Session links will be posted weekly for eight weeks and can be viewed until the end of September.
