As we all know, music is a great way to help children grow, develop, and express themselves in a creative way. Getting kids excited about music at an early age can really unlock their potential and help their creative side grow. Whether you come from a naturally musical family, or even if you don’t have a knack for music, don’t worry. There are plenty of places where kids can learn all the musical skills they need.
Here’s a list of some the best places to send your kids to learn all about the wonders of music here in Indianapolis:
As the world’s leading percussion museum, the Rhythm! Discovery Center is a great place for both children and adults to learn about the history, use and cultural impact of percussion instruments all over the world.
