Music at home-Balance and participation

Did you realize that a learning experience that involves more than one sense can be more powerful than a single-sensory activity? Each sense activates specific neurons in the brain. The more senses being used result in more brain activity. Therefore, activities such as “The Frog in the Bog” which involves vocal sound and touch and “A Ram Sam Sam” which involves listening, touch, and movement are optimal learning experiences.

Kindermusik thoughtfully provides such experiences with a balance of calming activities in order to avoid over-stimulation. Each and every one of you, as your child’s best teacher, is able to recognize your own child’s signs of fatigue, excitement, and learning readiness. Our class is your time to observe your child’s cues and participate accordingly.

Feel free to contact me by email or to talk with me in person  if you have questions about your child’s level of participation

There will be no Friday Our Time class on October 28. This class will be added to the end of the semester. Have a wonderful Halloween weekend!
