About This Activity


This class is closed to further registration.

(Ages 1 - 3 with parent/caregiver)

In this engaging class, children and their parents/caregivers experience the joys of making music by exploring the rich and vibrant folklore of Spain and Latin America. Children bounce, sing, dance, listen, move, and play simple games in Spanish.

Whether you want to continue the Spanish your child already speaks at home, or just want your child to have some fun and learn songs and dances in Spanish, this is a wonderful way to experience music with your child. No previous knowledge of Spanish necessary.

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
  • Increased social development and exploration
  • Encouragement of individual response
  • Cultivation of creative expression
  • Development of identification skills
  • Reinforcement of Spanish language skills

En esta clase, los niños y sus padres/cuidadores van a gozar de hacer música explorando el folklor vibrante de España y América Latina. Vamos a cantar, bailar, escuchar, y jugar juegos en español. Si desea continuar el español que su hijo/hija habla en casa, o solamente quiere divertirse con su hijo/hija mientras que aprende canciones y bailes en español, esta es una manera maravillosa de hacer música con su niño.

Actividades y beneficios de la clase incluyen:

  • Oportunidades para tocar instrumentos de percusión básicos como maracas y tambores
  • Repertorio de canciones y actividades para usar en casa
  • Actividades musicales apropiadas para la edad que apoyan el desarrollo infantil
  • Mas desarrollo social y exploración
  • Fomento a la respuesta individual
  • Cultivación de expresión creativa
  • Desarrollo de habilidades de identificación
  • Refuerzo de habilidades para hablar Español

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.
