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.

Confident, active kids become confident, active adults! 

Set your child on the right path by engaging them in music and movement based play. This class focuses on developing gross motor function in toddlers by encouraging them to move their bodies in time to sounds and music. 

At age 2, children are beginning to develop more complex cognitive skills that will aid them later in life. These classes focus on cognitive skills relevant to music, such as sustaining attention, remembering songs, and recognizing perceptual cues. Children in these classes will learn how to apply these skills towards musical exploration, and gain greater musical independence through basic musical skills. At this age, parents or caregivers assist their child's musical creativity and gain further skills for musical interaction with their child. 

With an emphasis on the fundamentals of listening and singing, playing simple instruments like maracas and drums, and taking turns, this course helps develop music competence and fosters confidence, belonging, and security among its weekly attendees. 

A parent or guardian accompanies their child for all classes for this course.

Students are registered by age as of December 31, 2020.
