Music and Movement Classes
Music and Movement is a structured musical play class for young infants aged 6 months-18months. The classes are based around learning melody and rhythm through the use of songs, activities, dance and musical instruments.
It is aimed at giving children the basic love and feel for music and is a great basis for learning a musical instrument, or simply to experience music while having a lot of fun, building confidence and coordination, and learning listening skills.
Music has so many benefits for your baby or toddler from improving memory and brain development to enhanced social skills and coordination.You are your child’s most important teacher and we aim to support you in this very important role. You are the expert when it comes to your child. We provide the structure and expertise to allow you to be the expert musical parent. We support you to participate in the sessions with your child through singing, moving to music, playing instruments and in improvised musical play.
Your child will participate in music making and music games that supports their development in so many ways:

- Cognitive (concepts, following instructions, listening and attending, imaginative play),
- Physical (fine motor instruments playing and dancing to music)
