Music and movement play a central role in the Montessori classroom. For
primary-aged children, music and movement are ways to develop everything
from fine motor skills to confidence. In the primary program at our Montessori
school, music and movement are part of each day.
Children in primary education have a unique ability to appreciate and understand
music, and their brains are at the perfect stage of development to absorb
different sounds, melodies, and rhythms. Playing with different instruments
introduces children to different cultures. Naturally, music creates an
opportunity to move as well, as kids dance to beats they hear. This movement
encourages expression and exploration while allowing kids to build gross
and fine motor skills.
At The Montessori School, we embrace the Montessori approach throughout
all of our programs, from our daycare to our
primary school. Find out more about our Montessori school in Dallas by calling (972)
