Please note, that as each child is unique, this is a general guideline of ages. Speak to our experienced staff if you have a question as to which class will be best for your child. 

Come and learn delightful musical ways to play with your baby, make friends, and nurture your baby's sensory development and natural musicianship. Babies love the gentle bouncing, instrument and prop play, peek-a-boo games and tickling rhymes included in our specialized 45-minute class. Live music accompanies our games and activities, keeping baby's attention while encouraging social interaction, language development and awareness. Smiles, giggles and coos are heard even from our youngest babies as they begin to recognize and anticipate meter, pitch and tempo changes in our songs. Our rhymes and chants are designed to stimulate and mimic the sounds babies naturally produce at this age and encourage them to produce new sounds.

For our older children movement becomes the key ingredient ss they discover their mobility. More instruments and props are added to our repertoire to extend the child's movement and vocabulary. "Songtime" is introduced as children begin to sing along to their favorite songs. As the program progresses rhythmic sounds, movement games and the use of specially chosen instruments help toddlers to walk, play and sing successfully.
