This nationally recognized program develops the very young child's potential in music and helps parents recognize and nurture their child's music making. The program provides a carefully planned sequence of music learning for children who are accompanied by parents or caregivers and uses the natural human inclination for chanting, singing and movement as the first steps in understanding melody, rhythm, and improvisation. Through interactive music making with parents and teachers, children discover the body as the primary music instrument.
Infant: up to 18 months
In infant classes, parents and children experience music by participating in gentle flowing and rhythmic movement activities. Infants’ spontaneous vocal responses, or babble, are viewed as the first attempts at music making and are incorporated into songs and chants. In class children will experiment with manipulatives (egg shakers, scarves, and beanbags) to help stimulate curiosity and foster body coordination.
