Multicultural Singer and Musician
With music, children develop a cultural awareness and a respect for traditions and customs other than their own.

They will feel empowered when they learn about a new culture or learn new words in a different language, and understand that the language of music is universal.

Children will express their emotions through song, movement and dance while they are singing, providing a healthy and creative outlet for their emotions, joys and frustrations.
