One of my favorite Preschooler Songs in Gymboree’s Music III class is “On St. Paul’s Steeple”. It’s the perfect example of how Music Classes for Preschoolers supports school readiness. We sing and play this delightful scale song on a set of eight Hand Bells during our N.W. Isles music lesson. It is so rewarding to see preschoolers lined up shoulder to shoulder with their minds at work and their social skills engaged in the challenge of working cooperatively with their peers. Their success is no small feat! It requires them to listen, take turns, and decipher the order of the musical tones that lead up to just the right moment to play their Hand Bell! What a valuable lesson in working with others to create something and achieve a goal and can only imagine how proud they are when their masterpiece comes out right! Musical activities like this “Hand Bell Ensemble” and others explored in Gymboree Music classes for infants, toddlers and preschoolers touch every area of your child’s development and teach them valuable musical skills too!
