Class Descriptions

Sprouting Melodies 1 (0-9 months)

Even at the earliest stages of development, we know that infants are stimulated and comforted by music. Babies 0-9 months old participating in Sprouting Melodies 1 with their parent or caregiver will be participating in simple song structures that increase their awareness of themselves and others, nurture healthy bonds and develop trust with the world around them. And with all that we know about brain development in infancy, it is all that we can't see at this age that is so incredibly vital to healthy growth. The repetition of musical experiences designed specifically for your little one will lay the ground work for a life full of learning!

Sprouting Melodies 2 (6-18 months)

For babies and young toddlers, music is all about exploring! Exploring the sounds, the touch, the feel, and yes, even the taste of everything around them! The active music making and music listening in Sprouting Melodies 2 is designed to support 6-18 months old as they build trust and increase their understanding of the world around them. The engaging songs immerse the babies in the musical experiences and provide many new ways to learn about themselves. They also learn that they can control many things as they learn to make music independently with a variety of instruments including drums, maracas and bells. Socially, these young children begin to anticipate and initiate the play as they explore being in music!

Sprouting Melodies 3 (18 months-3 years)

Between 18 months and 3 years of age, each day is an adventure full of growth and exploration! Songs become learned and mastered, and young children want to show off their new skills and independence. Within our music experiences, Sprouting Melodies 3 provides the routine that toddlers crave yet provides the freedom and creativity for children to grow in self-expression and to build social relationships with their peers in music. Through instrument play, movement and singing songs, children in this group will be supported as they move through their own personal journey of social, emotional, physical and cognitive growth.

Sprouting Melodies 4 (2 1/2 -4 years)

Your child is growing so fast now and exploring new ways of playing, interacting, and making music. As young children develop between two and a half and four years of age, they need lots of opportunities for freedom, imagination, creativity and social play. With increased verbal, cognitive and imaginative problem solving skills, the children in Sprouting Melodies 4 will be “leaders” in music experiences as they explore and create a musical environment that fosters growth. In Sprouting Melodies 4, the music therapist in this group serves as a guide for their newly developed ways of playing with sounds, instruments, toys, their peers and their parents.

Family Sprouts (0-5 years)

All young children can learn and grow in music. Family Sprouts gathers kids and families together and provides opportunities for children of different ages to learn and interact together. In music making, as in development, babies, toddlers and preschoolers have unique needs. Each Family Sprouts class includes active music making designed to elicit different responses from the children based on their cognitive, social and physical skills. The Sprouting Melodies Provider (R) will be able to direct parents on how the experience for children of different ages will be unique. This is also a great class for siblings and twins and will give you lots of new ways to incorporate music in your family time at home.

Sprouting Melodies 1 & 2 (0-18 months)

This class is designed to incorporate both the earliest stages of development and the beginning stages of babies exploration. The music provides stimulation and comfort for younger babies in the awareness phase of development and active music making for 6-18 month olds in the trust phase of development. We will be increasing your little ones awareness of themselves and others and foster the building of trust and exploration through active music making and listening. This class is especially fun because we can see the growth of the little ones from 0-18 months old. The older babies have the opportunity to play with younger babies and 0-6 months old love watching their peers crawl, walk, and make music all around them. Sprouting Melodies 1 and 2 is a unique class where babies, parents, and caregivers learn and play together within the fun musical structure!

Sprouting Melodies 5 (4-6 years) 
Our newest offering as our little ones grow into Big Kids!
Sprouting Melodies 5 is the first big kid class within Sprouting Melodies to
offer a group where the children will work together throughout the session to
develop their ideas, relationships with each other and grow in their own
expressions of music.
This is a drop-off

Sprouting Sibs (0-5 years)
Sprouting Sibs focuses on each family unit, incorporating 2+ siblings in each musical experience in the class. With multiple children in each family, this group supports positive sibling interactions through music. The sessions provide caregivers with lots of successful ways to bring music home to enhance sibling bonds and develop communication and play skills. Caregivers will also learn how to adapt experiences to make them developmentally and age appropriate for children of multiple ages. Children in this group will strengthen their bonds and connections with their parent or caregiver and their little or big sib.

Music Therapy Group for Children With Special Needs (3 year-7 years)
We will use the fun and motivation of music to address social, behavioral and sensory goals. Children will be singing, playing a variety of intruments and moving to the music as they engage in supportive and therapeutic music making. This is a child and caregiver class.
