A Mini Music class is a forty-five minute interactive musical experience. Infants, toddlers and preschoolers (ages infant-5) are accompanied in the class by a parent, grandparent or caregiver. From the time the class begins to the sweet closing song, it is a journey through both upbeat and mellow movements, major and minor song keys and different time signatures and rhythmic rhymes. Children and grown-ups will play instruments including resonator bells, drums and other percussive instruments, and dance with props including parachutes, ribbons and scarves.
Each session comes with a CD containing twenty to twenty-two songs - original, traditional and modern - recorded by Ali, Warren and various local musicians.
Over the course of the ten-week session all songs will be introduced and developed. Rhythmic and tonal patterns will be practiced encouraging growth in both babies’ and grown-ups’ musical understanding. Movement and dance will provide a visual and visceral musical lesson in addition to being fun and engaging.
Mini Music classes are highly educational, rich with joy, and provide a beautiful bonding experience between child and parent or caregiver never to be forgotten.
