Class Descriptions
Show classes for:
Sprouting Melodies 1 (0-9 mos)

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 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 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.

Music Therapy Club

Music Therapy Club is a unique musical place where all children can be free to create and join in music making that is specifically tailored to assure engagement, joy and success for all. The focus of this group centers on providing a supportive, facilitated atmosphere for children who need music experiences that take full advantage of individual strengths while minimizing the impact of difficulties.

Explorers (8yrs - 10yrs)

Take a journey without ever leaving home! Group members will join up with their guide on a creative story-telling experience using instruments, movement and song writing. The Explorers will record their journey in their Explorer Log as the story develops.

Junior Explorers (5yrs - 7yrs)

This week-long program will be a group theatre experience where each day has a different story for your child to tell! From a "Trip to the Beach," to a "Voyage to Space," Explorers will work together to create fantastic short stories using songwriting, dance, costumes, and instruments.

Techies (10yrs-13yrs)

Come have fun and learn how to use music apps such as Garage Band to create music with others. Use your own device to explore lots of new ways to compose, improvise, and record songs using your iPhone, iPod or iPad. Recommended apps will be shared in advance so that everyone is ready to rock! Come explore the world of digital music-making in this virtual space with us!

Super Sprouts (5 - 7 yrs)

Super Sprouts is a brand new level of Sprouting Melodies that continues to utilize familiar Sprouting Melodies songs and interventions while also incorporating basic music instruction. This integrated group will nurture leadership skills and support social and emotional interactions. We will spend time each week introducing adapted piano instruction to start learning the basic structures of music like rhythm, tempo, and dynamics. Children can use a keyboard or piano at home, easy to download apps on a phone or tablet, or play on a printed picture of keys to get started.
