Early Years Mandarin Music Program

"The younger children start, the better their mastery of the tones and nuances of Mandarin Chinese. Their natural ability to hear and reproduce the critical sounds and tonal differences in Mandarin is one that diminishes over time." Developmental Linguist

1/7

"We really enjoyed it. Will definitely go back. My daughter jumped right in and was speaking some Mandarin words during her first class. She enjoyed the music too. The teacher was perfectly encouraging to the kids. They incorporated a fun little seasonally appropriate art project too, which was nice." Kate, Mom of 2y

"My 21 month old son loved this class. He tends to be a bit everywhere and scattered and I was so impressed with how the teacher commanded his attention. Great class and we are considering joining for a semester." Jane, Mom of 1y
