Music for Infants – 17 Mos.

Kindermusik Village:
Ages Newborn to 17 Months Graphic_Quote_Suzuki_MusicHeart_Facebook_1200x1200

This is a special place for you and your little one to learn and connect with each other, and other parents and
babies, through music and movement.  Making music
together enhances all areas of your baby’s
development.  Learn more about your Baby as your Baby learns more about the world!  Kindermusik Village is for lap babies, crawlers and walkers. There are as many ways to enjoy each activity as there are little ones – everyone will have fun!

There are eight independent “Village” units, each 7 weeks long, so you never have to repeat a session. Each unit features its own CD, Baby Book, Art Banners for your nursery wall, and instrument
especially designed for baby!

“Do-Si-Do” Dancing Theme (September – October): Pick up your baby and Tango, Cha-Cha, and Charleston! Dancing with your baby helps develop vital learning skills from head to toe! We’ll also play with lots of baby safe instruments, scarves, chime balls and more!

“Do-Si-Do” Village class with Seniors at Roseview Manor, 99
Shuniah Street, is a magical intergenerational experience! You can also attend both the studio “Do-Si-Do” class (Sept. 11th – Oct. 11th) and “Do-Si-Do” at Roseview Manor  (Oct. 20th –  Dec. 1st)!   Stay
after our class to relax and connect with our Kindermusik families over complimentary refreshments.

“Feathers” Bird Theme (November – December): Musical poems of Woodie Guthrie, bird songs, and sounds in nature help babies
develop an early appreciation – and accelerated aptitude – for
language, listening, movement, and music in this class!  Includes First Nations songs, too!  Learn many ways to connect more deeply with your baby through fun activities you can do at home throughout the week!

($105 if reusing Home Materials “Do-Si-Do” or “Feathers” from a previously enrolled sibling in the same program, or repeating

Benefits for
Your Baby

Baby_Promotion_Picture

• Language Development – You’ll hear lots of sweet coo’s and goo’s before your baby’s first words, and Kindermusik activities will help you develop 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, Kindermusik helps 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.
• Musical Development – Whether you are bouncing your child to the steady beat or she is doing a fledgling “bouncy” dance on her own, your baby is primed and ready to benefit from an early introduction to music through exploring instruments, listening to sounds, and moving to music.
• Brain Development – “Miss Susan” is also your guide into how each activity contributes to your child’s development. Kindermusik engages in ongoing research about music and brain development that keep us in the forefront of early childhood music education.
