We're sorry, but this class is over. The last meeting was Saturday, January 28, 2017.
(Ages 4 to 24 months with parent/caregiver)
This class provides a wonderful opportunity for a parent or caregiver and toddler to discover the joys of making music as they participate in musical activities such as singing songs and lullabies, chants, simple finger plays, wiggles, bounces, listening and movement.
Each week, simple percussion instruments are used, such as shakers, drums and bells, and concepts such as body/spatial awareness, numbers, and colors are reinforced through musical play. Participants receive guidance on children's musical development, along with tools that support the creation of a nurturing musical environment at home.
Class activities and benefits include:
- Opportunities to play basic percussion instruments such as shakers and drums
- Repertoire of songs and activities to use at home
- Age-appropriate musical activities that support childhood development
- Fostering of social development and exploration
Please note: All classes consist of 45 minutes of instructional time followed by 15 minutes of Community Time to talk with our expert teachers, ask questions about music and child development, meet other families, and provide social time for children.
