Early Childhood Music Program opens registration

Helping young children develop an inherent musical understanding has long been the purpose of the UNT College of Music’s Early Childhood Music Program. This fall, a new face will continue building upon that goal.

New assistant director Sandy Cubero, right, will serve as instructor for the program, which begins Sept. 18 and runs through Nov. 20. Cubero joins Early Childhood Music Director Warren Henry in the program, designed to create a rich musical environment for babies and young children.

As a mother of a 1-year-old son, Cubero understands the importance of introducing children to music during the early formative years of their lives. Sandy Cubero

“The program includes songs, chants and activities that appeal to young children in a way that helps them understand musical basics such as tone and rhythm,” Cubero said. “Children learn about music in a way that is similar to how they learn language - through fun and play - all in an environment that allows them to socialize with other children and bond with their parents.”

The classes, taught in room 115 in the College of Music Annex, begin Sept. 18 for the Friday track and Sept. 19 for the Saturday track and run for 10 weeks.

Registration is preferred by Sept. 14, but the program will accept participants later if space allows. Additional children may attend at a 10 percent discount. An adult should be present for each child.
