I provide a mobile music and movement class for babies and toddlers. While discovering several genres we explore rhythm, simple intervals, percussion instruments, puppet play, and story time.
The purpose of this class is to introduce the basic music concepts, structure, expression, and theory with movement. You will notice how children start to express themselves creatively. Playing and discovering music has so many benefits. They will specifically:
Your little ones will be vocalizing, listening, creating short music pieces, discovering percussion instruments, and incorporating memory enhancing rhythmic movements. The class will work as a team in a circle time setting, which makes understanding content more dynamic for young minds. The relaxing ukulele will be the most featured instrument.

This class uses music to enhance development with the world around them. In class we include activities that require teamwork. This creates a base for continued social growth which all children need.
