Method to Music
Frank Leto shares his unique approach to passing on the language of music to young children. His method utilizes a multi-sensory approach that is designed to engage the child on many levels. Frank’s original songs are sung in an “echo”, or call and response. The songs also incorporate corresponding hand motions, making the experience fun and extremely engaging.
An appropriate music curriculum has many benefits for the young child, whether in the classroom or in the home.
Frank’s Method to music can give your child(ren) the gift of music.
