How can music benefit my child?
Studies have shown that live music and musical training can benefit children before they can walk or talk. Singing to your child prepares their ears, voice and brain for language. Dancing and moving with them teaches balance and coordination.
But I'm not a singer!
Babies are particularly responsive when live music comes from their parent. Your voice is the most important one to them - regardless of how you perceive the quality of it!
What happens in the sessions?
Sessions start with free play with musical instruments. This allows your little one to explore and interact with music, and others.
We do lots of singing and listening to live music, including traditional nursery rhymes and specifically composed songs. This exposes your child to a new and exciting vocabulary. Even if they aren’t talking yet, you will be preparing their ears, voice and brain for speech.
