Our Infant Mental Health (IMH) program is partnering with the Michigan State Community Music School (MSU CMS-Detroit) to offer early childhood music classes called Hip Hop Tots. The free classes encourage children’s musical, cognitive, social and emotional development through musical play. Christine Lower, from #MSUCMS, leads the classes, which meet once a week for eight weeks.
“We just finished our fourth class and I’m already seeing the positive impact,” said Luz Zuniga, an IMH specialist at Southwest Solutions. “Little by little, the kids are becoming more confident in interacting with the teacher and other kids. Just as important, the moms are really engaged in the fun musical activities.”
