We have been introducing kids to the world of music since 2005. This program emphasis is placed on musical growth and development
Super musical fun for All! From the tiniest babies to big kids, there are musical milestones at every level.
We create a welcoming and supportive musical community in each class. Children grow and develop musically in this warm, nurturing atmosphere that fosters creativity and a love of music for children of all ages.
Adults are encouraged to make music with the kids. They model the skills we’ll be working on. Singing in tune and keeping an accurate beat are some of our goals.
The classes are high energy and very stimulating! We want all families to move freely to the music. There is no such thing as “two left feet”. Everybody is a dancer. The children carry this idea with them as they grow up.
We use joyful original and traditional music of many different cultures from around the world. We spin the globe each week and take a musical journey to another land. Exciting and international rhythm and melodies.
Lots of instrument play! We use all kinds of instruments and props in the classes: egg shakers, rhythm sticks, bells, drums, maracas, castanets, tambourines, scarves, balls and more.
We also play instruments from other cultures, including Africa, Asia, and South America. This enables us to make different kinds of sounds. The children can put the rhythm in their hands, and actually feel the beat.
The music selected for each session is a mix of different rhythms and tonalities. Children are exposed to various meters and musical styles.
The music is exciting and interesting, there’s always something new. We also use traditional music that is part of the American musical repertoire.
Each session features a new collection of songs. Every family receives an album download and songbook.
Dancing is a big part of our program. To feel the music, we must put it in our bodies. Parents and caregivers hold babies and move around the room. Older children dance and bop to the music on their own.
Shake, Rattle & Roll is the most musical fun you can have with your child! If you can’t come, send your caregiver. Your child will love it, and you will too when you and your child hear the music at home. We’d love to have you and your baby, toddler or preschooler join us!This
