is a music and movement program for infants and young children. Each class develops musical sensitivity through natural musical expression such as singing, playing of instruments, story telling and creative movement.
Children Love Music !
Through listening and active participation children develop confidence, self-control and pleasure in their ability to understand musical concepts such as beat, rhythm, tempo and pitch. (Although they think they are just having fun) Both parent and children have an aesthetic experience in a musical and playful environment. The one hour parent/caregiver not only introduces your baby and older children to many new songs and lap games but also builds a repertoire of activities for parents to continue to do at home. Parents discover the magic of music as they sing songs confidently with their children while driving, waiting for appointments and just for the pure joy of it.
During a class children will be exposed to a variety of musical instruments while they are moving, singing, listening or participating.At musical motion we have class sets of bells, shakers and drums. Jane might accompany them with her singing voice, recorder or ukulele.
