Both the Babies Make Music and the Toddler Tunes courses are designed for families to experience rhythmic musical games, lullabies, beat-keeping/bouncing songs, singing and movement. Designed to help parents in learning how to create a rich musical environment for their babies or their toddlers, it is a springboard to stimulate daily music-making at home.
~Visit our class schedule to enroll or email us to discuss scheduling your own quarantine pod.
~Limited to no more than 5 families per class. Minimum of 4 children/max 7
~Families will need to provide their own instruments and stuffies to maintain safety in the studio, especially since babies and toddlers love to "taste" their instruments. We have instruments you can purchase or we can guide the group in what kinds of instruments and props are needed in the class.
In our mixed-age Music Together classes, babies, toddlers, preschoolers and the grownups who love them come together to play musically.
Little ones love playing along in class, and caregivers love being a part of their children’s growth into confident music-makers. And everyone loves the songs that’ll have you tapping along in no time. Music Together is the perfect family activity! The 45-minute class for children ages birth to 5 includes a range of musical experiences, from playful free-movement to instrumental jam sessions, in a musical immersion style of learning with singing, moving, listening, watching, or exploring instruments.
At around age 3 or earlier, children can begin to associate sound with symbols, so this is the perfect time to begin taking musical concepts from experiential to more concrete.
