Musikgarten Baby Music Class (Infant-Pre-walkers)
All babies are musical!  Learn how to nurture your infant's innate music abilities through active music making in a variety of tonalities, meters and styles.  It's never too early to begin. In fact, research indicates that the earlier you begin, the greater the opportunity you will have to influence your child's lifetime music potential!

Play with your baby in a warm and nurturing musical environment.  Music and developmental play activities delight infant and parent alike.  Awaken your child's natural curiosity about music and stimulate brain development in this delightful class for infants.  Through singing, movement, bouncing and rocking, we tenderly nurture the young child's music aptitude, laying the foundation for beat awareness, vocal production and aural discrimination.

Activities include singing, gentle bouncing songs, rocking songs and lullabies, simple dances and movement, finger plays, body awareness games, peek-a-boo with scarves, and lots of time to wiggle, giggle, and cuddle!
