The activities in this Family Time Class are for children from 12 months to 5 years of age. This is a 14 week class, with each weekly class 45 minutes in length. Your tuition includes the Fiddle Dee Dee curriculum package with two listening CD’s, two literature story books, a Home Activity book to continue the learning at home, and a pair of Fiddlesticks to shake, rattle, roll and tap. If you have two or more children participating in class there will be an instrument for each child.
What A Parent And Child Will Experience In Class:
Instrument exploration and ensemble skill development Children will explore the physical characteristics and sounds of age-appropriate instruments which will eventually lead them to discover their potential for beat, rhythm, melody, and ensemble playing. Vocal play Through vocal play, toddlers learn to form vowels and consonants, say words and phrases, and imitate rhythm and vocal inflection. In Kindermusik Our Time, vocal play is presented within the context of songs, chants, and activities done in class. Exploration Time Children will love discovering specially designed instruments, textures, sounds, and movements. Story time and early literacy Listening to stories enhances language and speech development and fosters awareness of sounds, teaches use of language, and sends the message that words and symbols have meaning. The same experiences that help toddlers learn to read a book also help them learn to read music. Movement Activities Each class provides various opportunities for movement such as synchronized movement, group dances and circle games, and even expressive movement. Together Time Kindermusik is the essence of quality time, allowing parents to make the most of the fleeting toddler years, giving them the time and the tools to make music and memories together in class and at home.
|In Fiddle Dee Dee, we'll meet many animal characters in our books, activities, and songs—each specifically chosen for a toddler's emerging interests and physical skills. With silly, bumpy lap bounces we'll help your child develop rhythm while further developing his ever-emerging language skills. With a special stringed-emphasis in the music from class, you can bring home the violin, cello, and orchestra sounds to help your toddler stay a happy and engaged learner at home, too.|
