Athena Montessori School Bilingual Music Program

The Somos Amigos Bilingual Music Program immerses children in the sounds and cadence of the Spanish and English languages through singing, movement games, rhythm instruments and musical stories.  Children experience the joy of making music in both languages thus developing creativity and flexibility in thinking, in being, in expressing, and in developing friendships.  A reinforcement CD recording and bilingual songbook with coloring pages are provided for practice at home (and in the car) so parents can participate in reinforcing their child's musical and langauge skills.

Ann Benson, Founder/Director/Instructor of Somos Amigos, is a Montessori teacher and early childhood music expert and has been leading Somos Amigos programs since 1997 beginning in south Florida and now in Austin.
