As parents with babies and toddlers, we are always looking for new tools to help us through the most challenging parts of our day. Things that seem simple to us, like getting ready in the morning, or going to bed at night, can be the most challenging times of the day in the lives of our children. We have found that one of the most effective ways to handle these most trying times in their day is through music! We have taken all that we know about the benefits of music, along with our knowledge of child development and behavior, to create this extremely unique music class that will not only be entertaining but educational as well.
Melody Day will take you though a day in the life of your child combining original songs specially developed to guide you through the transitions of your child's day, along with old favorites that will have everyone singing, dancing and playing their instruments. Each age-specific class has a theme that focuses on a different aspect of your child's cognitive, emotional, social and physical development. This is a music class, a child development class and parenting class all rolled up into one phenomenal experience!
Class length: 1 hour each session.
This is an 6 or 8 week session
