DENTON (UNT), Texas -- The University of North Texas College of Music is welcoming children to open their minds to the world of music with its Early Childhood Music program. Infants to preschool children will learn to sing along, bang on drums, shake maracas and develop their musical abilities in the six week program.

The registration deadline is May 28 (Monday) for classes that will begin on June 2 (Saturday). Classes are $70 for infants from birth to 24 months and $80 for children from 25 months to 5 years old. A $10 discount is offered for each additional child enrolled from the same family.

Heidi Scheibmeir, teacher and assistant director for the Early Childhood Music program, said music learning is just like language learning for young children and the more that younger children are exposed to music, the more beneficial it will be for them. Once children begin singing and playing child-appropriate instruments, they also begin matching pitches and rhythms, she said.

"The more infants and young children are exposed to quality music, the more they will begin to learn," Scheibmeir said.

The following summer classes will be offered:

  • Infants (birth to 24 months) -- 9-9:30 a.m.
  • Nursery (25 months to 48 months) -- 9:45-10:25 a.m.
  • Infants (birth to 24 months) -- 10:35-11:05 a.m.
  • Nursery (25 months to 48 months) -- 11:15-11:55 a.m.
  • Preschool (3 ½ to 5 years) -- Noon-12:45 p.m.
