Kids Rock

Get ready to rock and roll and see your child grow! Kids Rock is a music therapy group open to children of all abilities, including those with special needs.

During music therapy, fun music-based interventions (such as singing, movement to music, and instrument playing) are used to engage children and work on goals that are non-musical (such as increasing expressive language or improving social skills). We’ll be shaking maracas to samba beats, playing gathering drums and rocking ocean drums, singing blues songs, waving scarves to music, learning songs about social skills, and dancing in groups to reggae music.

Music therapy sessions are unique in that the music therapist uses live music on guitar, keyboard, and ukulele and writes all original songs that are upbeat, rhythmic, and fun!

Sessions are led by board-certified music therapist, Amy Kalas, MM, MT-BC, director of Wholesome Harmonies, LLC.

Session: April 21 – June 2, 2013
: Sundays 12:30-1:15pm
Where: Pinecrest Community Center ~ 5855 Killian Drive, Pinecrest, FL
Who: Children ages 3-7 of all abilities
