What Parents Are Saying

My kid enjoyed it and started practicing the notes that were taught for the famous rhymes on her keyboard. She was able to relate the Carnatic notes to the rhymes and understand eventually what “notes” mean. She loved the story as well.

It was nice to see children being interactive. My son is usually shy but he loves stories and music and the whole event made him interactive too.😊 I wish a huge success to ShrotaHouse to organize more such events for the benefit of children.
