Musical Steps has started in Exeter and in Woodbury. It offers real musical expertise to babies and toddlers, helping children learn to co-operate, take turns, share, create, listen, communicate, and grow in confidence in a fun and musical way. It also develops their musical awareness and ability which will prepare them for further musical activities when they are older.
