Repetition is one of the ways that we learn something well.

Children improve singing on pitch, learn the lyrics and melody better with each repetition.

Children will develop their musicality if you sing, move, play more often!

Keep a list of the songs and activities that you like.

You can easily find any song by using the search engine on the website.
