This program is for Preschoolers: Ages 4-5
Music Moves for Kids classes are 10-week classes designed to build a strong foundation for your child's continued music learning throughout their life. Music Moves for Kids guides the innate music capacities of young children, while giving adult caregivers the techniques to guide musical learning while at home.
An adult caregiver (ex: parent, grandparent, uncle/aunt, guardian, or others) must attend each class with your child, this does not have to be the same person each week but it is encouraged for continuity. The primary purpose of the adult caregiver is to help maintain a safe environment. Adult caregivers will also learn new repertoire of songs and become familiar with how to nurture your child's music behaviours at home. Adult caregivers do not need to be musicians to enjoy what happens in class or to be of musical value to your child. Music Moves for Kids can be a learning experience for the whole family!
Classes expose children to a wide repertoire of songs and chants. Teachers model simple, creative movements and encourage children to move. Props such as scarves, balls, egg shakers, and hoops are utilized to help children engage. Class activities are orchestrated to create a playful environment where music becomes the toy. Children are encouraged to interact with the music in whatever way they feel most comfortable. Facilitating music interaction and building upon children's natural responses are key components of a Music Moves for Kids class. There are no right or wrong responses to the music and movement activities in class and every child's uniqueness is valued!
