The University of North Texas College of Music has opened enrollment for the winter session of its early childhood music program.
UNT's Early Childhood Music program offers music classes for children from birth to 5 years old. The classes are designed to accelerate children's development in song, rhythm and expression.
The 10-week winter session includes two classes, one held on Fridays from Jan. 5 - March 9 and the other held Saturdays from Jan. 6 - March 10. All classes are held in Room 115 of the Music Annex Building, located at 1630 W. Highland St. at the corner of Avenue C and Highland on the campus.
The cost for the infant class - for newborns and babies up to to 24 months old - is $150. The cost for ages 2 to 5 years old is $170, with a $20 application fee per family once per academic year. Families who enrolled in the fall session do not need to pay the application fee for the winter. Families who enroll more than one child will get a 50 percent discount for each additional child.
Sessions will be divided into four different age groups:
· Infant - 0 to 24 months
· Toddler - 2 to 4 years
· Pre-K - 3 1/2 to 5 years
· Multi-age - 0 to 5 years
Visit the Early Childhood Music program page for more information or to register. Registration is now open and required by Jan. 3. Each child must be accompanied through each class by an adult.
On Fridays, a Parkmobile lot - a public lot where motorists pay for spaces through the Parkmobile app - is available at the corner of Highland Street and Avenue C for $2.25 per hour. Saturday parking is free in the faculty-staff lots. For more information on parking, visit the transportation website or view the UNT parking map here
