Course Description

All early years programming will be delivered online via Zoom. To better support your home learning experience, parents and caregivers will be sent Song Sheets for each class. A list of home-sourced “found sound” instruments will be provided in advance of the first class.

Enjoy rhythms and rhymes, learn some new lullabies, and have fun with your little one! 

Children are naturally curious about music from a very early age, and the positive atmosphere of this class helps foster lifelong connections with music, builds strong parent-child emotional bonds, and provides a weekly forum for social interaction. The goal of this course is to expose you and your child to the basic concepts of music through sensory awareness and self-creation, with particular attention paid to beat, rhythm, and listening skills.
 
Infants are just beginning to explore the world around them, and that includes their musical world. Even before they are born, children can hear music all around them, and our classes start from the very beginning. In this class, you and your child will start to learn about the fundamentals of music through movement, singing, and play. The course is designed to foster basic cognitive skills through a musical framework, and to help parents and caregivers learn ways to interact with the child through music. 

You and your child will start to learn about the fundamentals of music through movement, singing, and play. The course is designed to foster basic cognitive skills through a musical framework, and to help parents and caregivers learn ways to interact with the child through music. A typical class begins with a greeting song, followed by gentle bouncing games, finger plays, movement, and playing with instruments. The class concludes with lullabies or other songs for all to enjoy.

A parent or guardian accompanies their child for each class for the full session.
