Come and join our new Eurhythmics workshops here at the center!

What is Eurhythmics?
It’s an approach to music education which involves teaching concepts of rhythm, structure and musical expression through movement.

What’s the benefit?
By stimulating our children’s mind and body through music we can improve and develop their concentration, sharpness, judgment, memory and spontaneity. This method can help cultivate a child’s creativity, expressive power and ability to cooperate with others in a group. It will enable a child to learn an instrument effectively.

5/13 Tue (for age 2~4) 11:00~
5/14 Wed (for age 2~4) 10:00~
