Music Play Class with Michaela

Very young children can learn music. Music development takes place in children’s lives in a very similar way to language development. Children learn to speak their native language first by hearing those around them speak and engaging with that in playful ways. They babble random sounds, pay attention to how that feels, watch adults speaking about the things they are interacting with, imitate sounds, and are a sponge for information. In the same way, children can understand the ins and outs of music, learning how certain pitches, patterns, rhythms, and sounds fit together to form a beautiful piece. Long before formal lessons begin, children can form an internal repertoire of patterns through these same processes.

In Music Play class your child will participate in song and pattern dialog. The teacher will model singing songs and patterns leaving spaces in which children can respond in their own way. This takes place while incorporating favorite toys such as stuffed animals and colorful scarves. The responses from children can vary and could include silence, babbling pitches or rhythms, imitating patterns, and singing. All of these responses are an important part of music development. By hearing and responding to music through play, children develop a music vocabulary that they can easily refer to once they begin formal study.
