Music for Toddlers~ 18 mo-3 yrs
Music Kids~Cycles of Seasons- Ages 3-5




Music for Babies - Saturday am (Newborns - 18 Months)30 minute classes once a week

Music for Babies~ Newborn to 18 mo.

All babies are born with an aptitude for music. But research shows that their aptitude diminishes if it is not nurtured. The best way to nurture a child's music aptitude is through active music making. By singing and dancing for and with our children in a variety of tonalities, meters and styles we are helping our children reach their full music potential.

This class offers adults the opportunity to play with their babies in a musical setting, experiencing music and movement activities designed to delight the child and awaken his or her curiosity about music. By singing, dancing, bouncing, and rocking, the child's music aptitude is being carefully nurtured, laying the foundation for beat awareness, vocal production, and aural discrimination.

Activities include singing, bouncing songs, rocking songs, dances, finger plays, body awareness games, and echoes. 
An adult must accompany each child.

Materials:$39.00 a CD, colorful song and picture book

Music for Toddlers - Saturday am (18 months - 3 Years)30 minute classes once a week

Music for Toddlers~18 mo. to 3 yrs

Develop a strong musical bond with your toddler while singing, chanting, moving, dancing, listening, and playing simple instruments. These activities bridge the natural connection between music and movement while enhancing and further developing your child's musical aptitude and listening abilities. Classes provide an active, hands-on musical environment appropriate for this age. An adult must accompany each child.

Specialists agree that early exposure to music plays an important role in children's emotional, intellectual and social development. Developmentally appropriate activities build fundamental musical skills and help prepare children for a wide range of music and school activities.
