First Steps in Music is a developmentally appropriate and researched early childhood music program.  We will be offering two classes for the following age groups:

  • Infant/Toddler, Birth – Age 2, 10:00 – 10:30 AM:  Children will enjoy being bounced, wiggled and tickled by their grown up.  We will use scarves and other simple props to help us explore free movement.  Each class includes a ball-rolling activity and ends with a gentle lullaby.  This class gives parents tools to help interact with, entertain, and sooth their little one.  Children and adults will both be active participants.
  • Nursery/Preschool, Ages 2 – 5, 10:45 – 11:30 AM:  Children will begin to explore their four voices (speaking, whisper, calling, singing).  Each class will include vocal exploration activities and each child will be encouraged to sing short phrases on his/her own.  We will sing many echo and call-and-response songs.  Children will learn rhymes and simple songs that they can say or sing on their own.  Through the use of games and activities, children will explore different types of movement.  Adults will participate in all activities.

Registration is required.  The fee is $100 per child, $40 for additional siblings.  Please download your registration form and return it to our office, Attn:  Becky Murray.
