Course DescriptionThis 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.
Toddler:18 to 36 months
Toddler classes are designed around children’s increasing independence and desire to explore and play. Locomotor movement activities allow children to explore their music environment. Teachers will incorporate the children’s spontaneous movement and vocal explorations into classroom songs and chants. Additional manipulatives (co-operband, parachute, and gathering drum) provide opportunities for cooperative group movement and music making.
