About Group Classes
My group music classes are designed for varying age groups ranging from babies & toddlers through elementary aged children. This early childhood music education uses singing, hearing, feeling, creating, sharing, reading, & movement to develop body/brain connections as well as musical aptitude. We will discover the basic elements of music such as beat, rhythm, tempo, dynamics, & pitch. By participating in musical activities together, we learn music but also experience the connection & joy that music should be.
Children respond very well to songs, rhyme, rhythm, & repetition. Watching a child’s eyes light up in response to the music & the group teaches us how to communicate with them. Music speaks directly with their right brain of creativity and develops their left brain sense of order & logistics. Parents will also find that the use of the songs in daily life help children understand concepts that normal speaking does not accomplish as well….concepts like left & right, up & down, sit or stand, stop & go, etc. We also learn things like sign language, counting, colors, annunciation, body awareness, coordination, and working with others.
Together, we learn how to interact with our children in fun yet meaningful ways. I often hear parents say that they don’t like to play with their child or they simply don’t know how. These classes will teach you very effective ways to connect with & teach your children. Please join us for a free 1st class! We are sure that you & your child will love it!
Music is a language and children can absorb that language just like any other
Body & impulse control
Connecting aural skills to body movement

My current class offering is Thursday Toddler Tunes ages 6 months – 5 years. The materials we cover are appropriate for younger and slightly older children alike. Babies under 6 months are welcome for free.
All of my classes & private lessons are parent/child. Parents are required to be in attendance & participate. I’ve learned through years of music education & Suzuki training that children learn much faster with parent participation.
