Sprouting Melodies Class Descriptions

Sprouting  Melodies  1

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  joining  in  simple  song  structures  that  increase  their  awareness  of  themselves  and  others,  nurture  healthy  bonds  and  develop  trust  with  the  world  around  them.  With  all  that  we  know about  brain  development  in  infancy,  it  is  really  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  2

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  isdesigned  to  support  children  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  find  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

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.
