Description:

This is a group music class for 0-3 year olds and their caregivers, with instructor Lara DeBeyer. We’ll sing, dance, listen, and play together! The class is intended to expose your little ones to the joy of music through songs, rhymes, and finger plays, to give them a basic, bodily understanding of rhythm, beat, pitch, and melody, and to build early confidence in a group setting. They’ll also get experience playing some basic percussion instruments like drum, woodblock, and glockenspiel in addition to singing and creative movement. I love teaching these classes, and I hope to see you there!! Class size is capped at 8 caregiver-child pairs.
