At Beat Boppers we believe that: children should have the opportunity to explore and learn about music through playful experiences; children should take an active part in music-making - creating their own music, singing, dancing and playing along on instruments; music is an art-form that ALL children should have the opportunity to participate in and enjoy; and that children learn best when they are having FUN!
