Bring a blanket and a smile! This class introduces music and rhythm to babies through a series of nursery rhymes set to music, both vocal and instrumental. By using the power of music and props, this class helps to develop and stimulate the neurological network, and make sense out of sounds and rhythm. This in turn helps them eventually comprehend words. The class will enable the parent or caregiver to strengthen the bond with their child and have fun doing it. Between ribbons, a parachute, bubbles, soft toys, drums, and games involving bouncing, wiggles and tickling, peek-a-boos and finishing with a calming lullaby, see your baby’s eyes light up as they discover the interactive world of music!

This class involves a different theme every week, with an instrument hiding in a “magic box.” The class is designed to stimulate your child’s imagination through a series of story telling involving singing, chanting, playing instruments, marching and movement. The children will learn how to play more advanced instruments such as bongos, xylophones, 1/8 size violins, recorders, accordions as well as shakers, drums, bells and to move in time to music. We use props such as a parachute, beanbags, ribbons, furry toys, a “magic box” 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.
