Baby MusicPlay Classes: For Newborns, Infants & Babies
In Baby Music Play classes, we have unique learning experiences that can be adapted for any age.
Music is one of your baby’s favorite things – AND it’s one of the best things for your baby’s developing mind. Babies’ brains are ﬁlled with billions of neurons just waiting to be connected through sensory stimulation. That’s what we do when we participate together moving through essential music learning sequences. We offer a sensory rich environment, complete with music, instruments, puppets, props, movement and fun, to create and strengthen baby’s neural pathways. The most critical time for development of musical aptitude is from birth to 18 months. Don’t miss the crucial time in your child’s musical development.
Music Play in Early Childhood
Young children newborn to age 18 months are primarily in a acculturation stage of music learning. Your child needs interactive music making, not simply listening to CD’s in order to develop the neural pathways needed for future music success. With you there to nurture and engage your child,Music plays gives your little one the perfect head start, musically and developmentally.
At Everyone Makes Music, we strongly believe that musical development for the sake of music alone, and all it adds to life, is the only reason needed for investing in your child’s musicality.
However many other side benefits come along side as a bonus.
Language Development – Music develops your baby’s language skills through vocalization in response to music, hearing his name in songs, and exploring sounds with his own voice.
Vocal Development – Being immersed in a bath of musical sound becomes the precursor to actual singing. Vocal play activities inspire your little one to begin to coo, babble, and hum – the beginning stages of learning to use the voice.
Cognitive Development – Little minds present a big window of opportunity, a window that’s actually only open for so long. Simple musical play activities increase your baby’s brain development by locating sounds though instrument and object play and feeling a steady beat.
Gross Motor Skills – One thing will naturally lead to the next as you expand your baby’s movement repertoire through activities that support rolling, crawling, and kicking during music, as well as sitting and standing independently, and later learning to walk, march, and dance.
Fine Motor Skills – From discovering her hands to learning what her hands can do, your baby will thrive on playful activities with you that give her practice in visually tracking objects and teach her how to reach, grasp, and release those objects as well as to transfer them from hand-to-hand.
Social Emotional Development – At a time when your child is becoming attached to you and just beginning to make her first connections with other people, music class can help you strengthen the precious bond with your child through cuddling, playing, humming, and dancing and also heighten the benefits of social interaction with others through side-by-side play and group dances.
