Music comes alive in KinderConcerts – free 30-minute concerts designed especially for children 2- to 5-years old. No worries about wiggly tots sitting still for a concert – they’ll dance and move while listening to the music. Then they’ll be mesmerized by hearing a story being told with musical accompaniment. Members of the A2SO join child movement expert Gari Stein and pianist Kathryn Goodson for a guided introduction to the instruments of the orchestra. Parents, grandparents, teachers, and day care leaders can introduce classical music to even the youngest listeners at your local libraries.

In order for all children to participate and have a successful experience, please let us know if your child has any special needs that we can accommodate. Call Jessica at 734-475-8732, ext. 208.

Do you feel like you often resort to lecturing, coaxing, negotiating, or yelling? There are ways to prevent these scenarios! This talk will cover specific strategies that parents and other caregivers can use to encourage cooperative behavior in their young children. These strategies will focus on how and when parents should communicate with their children to help them learn appropriate behaviors.
