Family Music for Babies

Newborns to 16 months

In this 40 minute class, adults have the opportunity to play musically with their baby so that their well-being and total development might be served.  Parents, or caregivers, will learn many songs for touching eyes and ears, hands and feet  to help Baby learn about the body and to build body awareness.  We will experience songs for wiggling and tickling which help Baby enjoy the delight of music,  and songs for movement to allow baby to feel the flow, beat, meter, phrase, and nuance for music.

This class is rich in interactive  bouncing, rocking and dancing songs.  We sing rocking and quiet songs, to help Baby calm him/herself. 
Baby  will be starting to play with rattles, rhythm sticks, scarves, and drums as we explore  sound, timbre, and vibration.  There is much repetition from week to week because repetition of simple songs and rhymes enhances memory, oral expression and later written language.


Our goal is to awaken Baby's natural curiosity and response to music, to develop aural perception, a musical sense, and a sense of beat, and to encourage pleasure in listening to and making music together at home.  Come enjoy a wonderful playtime with your baby, and meet other moms, dads and caregivers!
