Our curriculum for Winter 2019 is Making New Friends!
In our Family Music for Toddlers classes we will delight in the endless energy of your children, their joy in bouncing, rocking, and dancing with you. As we see them develop in this rich, musical environment, together we are laying the foundation necessary for success in music and in life.
Toddlers are always moving! In fact movement is not only your toddler’s favorite new-found skill, it is your toddler’s most effective way to learn. Although children eventually have to learn to “sit still and listen” they can not do it yet, and engaging them in purposeful movement activities is the perfect preparation for this all-important skill.
Listening is the cornerstone of all learning. While most children are born with the ability to hear, all children have to be taught to listen well. Family Music for Toddlers class is the perfect environment for nurturing this critical skill. Our focused listening activities direct the children to listen to short examples of familiar sounds that tie in with the activities. They hear the sound of a cat after singing Three Little Kittens, or the sound of hammering, sawing, and drilling after doing The Workshop.
All children are innate singers! In fact, the cooing of a child is very light, high, and musical. By keeping the child in a singing-rich environment your child will retain his/her singing voice and gain control of it in an ever-expanding range. And singing songs, playing instruments, dancing, and rocking with you elevates these experiences so they live on in the mind of the child forever.
