This class introduces music and rhythm to our youngest students through child – friendly small instruments which they play accompanied by live music and movement. Instruments include hand held eggs, tambourines, jingle bells, rain shakers, maracas, ocean drums, rainbow mallets and hand drums among many others. Through interactive playing, this class helps to develop and stimulate the neurological network, and make sense out of sounds and rhythm. This in turn helps young children eventually comprehend words. The class will enable the parent or caregiver to strengthen the bond with their child and have fun doing it. Between many enticing percussion instruments, scarves, a parachute, bubbles, and games involving bouncing, wiggles and tickling, peek-a-boos and finishing with a calming lullaby, see your child's eyes light up as they discover the interactive world of music!

With a different instrument presented every week in a "magic box", this class is designed to stimulate your child's imagination through playing instruments, story telling involving singing, chanting, and movement. The children will learn how to play instruments such as bongos, xylophones, 1/8 size violins, recorders, accordions, shakers, wood blocks, sand blocks, bongo drums, bells, piano, and ukuleles, as well as how to move in time to music. We use props such as a parachute, a "magic box", scarves and bubbles to get everyone involved. This small group class encourages social interaction and will prepare them for kindergarten while having a lot of fun. We introduce wonderful pieces such as Peter and the Wolf and Tubby the Tuba through an audio/storybook approach.
