Class description and pricing:
🐦 Little Bird Parent-child Music Class 🐦
This parent-child music class is based on the idea that children are naturally musical. If exposed to rhythm, song, and dance from an early age, they can more easily develop their natural musicality and future interest in learning to sing and play instruments.
In this class we will sing, play, and dance together. You will learn songs and musical games that will nurture your child’s creativity and musical growth.
Children, like adults can develop their capacity and appreciation for music in a warm, playful, and calm setting. Parents are encouraged to join in to model participation for their children, and as the series builds on itself, watch as the children delight in the familiarity of the songs. Enjoy the experience of connecting with your child through music, and take that experience home with you when you go!
Appropriate for children from infancy to age five with an adult, from babies-in-arms to jumping toddlers.
Taught by musician and music teacher Gabrielle Macrae.
