This is a magical age when children are learning to make sense of the spoken language around them, preparing to speak their first word. A very similar learning process also happens at this age with music as they intuitively internalize all the nuances of how music works. Classes at this age help internalize rhythms and contrast through movement and games, awaken awareness of the body and provide the child’s first hands-on experience with a variety of instruments. Just as you speak to your children with a full and rich vocabulary and do not simplify your language to one-syllable words, we believe that it is important to expose the children to a varied and rich musical vocabulary at this age as well. We draw on songs from all over the world and music by great masters from Tito Puente to Willie Nelson, Mozart to Duke Ellington. The structure of the class also offers a beautiful opportunity for parent or caregiver to bond with the child in a loving musical way.
