Early Childhood Music & Movement
Kennedy Piano Studio, LLC
Dynamic Music! Offers early childhood music and movement to infants and toddlers between the age of 0 to 4 years old. “Mommy and Me” classes have sessions ranging from 4 to 10 weeks at a time. There is a limit of 8 children and their “big kids who follow them around” in each class.
There are several benefits of mommy and me classes: they help increase mobility, muscle strength and motor development. This increases their confidence at a young age to be able to climb through things, or slide down an incline, and even clap hands. They develop language skills which also allows babies and toddlers to experience new sights and sounds. They allow kids to interact with one another and provide sensory stimulation. Classes help develop independence while at the same time strengthening the bond between the grownup and child. One other benefit of Mommy and Me classes are that the grownups get to make new friends, too!
Each week, class begins with a “Hello” song. Following that, we sing songs about the seasons, weather, animals, holidays, people, and friendships, for example. Besides singing, we also dance and do movement with scarves, bean bags, a trampoline, and other manipulatives. We read stories and play along to songs using percussion instruments as well! Class ends each time with a “Goodbye” song. We have a lot of fun playing, singing, and dancing in “Mommy and Me” classes!
