Gail Burnett, of “Miss Gail and the Jumpinâ€™ Jam Band”, will give your family the tools to nurture your child’s musical lifeÂ journey. Even as early as birth, children’s brains are making important musical connections! It’s all about exposing them to music in the right way, at the right time! This class, offered in once-per-week 45 minute sessions, is for ages 0 through 4, along with a parent or caregiver.
What does a class look like?
In class, we sing, dance, keep steady beats, move, wiggle, play child-safe instruments… all to help your child achieve ‘primaryÂ musical development’, which is keeping a steady beat and singing in tune which they need to achieve prior to moving on to â€˜formal music lessonsâ€™. But it is done in a playful and age appropriate way! Even the youngest child benefits because, just as they learn language, they are ‘soaking it in’ like a sponge well before they are actually ‘making music’.
The class has a relaxed environment which suits all ages and stages at the same time. Each child decides how and when to participate based on his or her own developmental level. Brothers and sisters will enjoy it together. Regardless of your musical background, you and your child will enjoy this diverse musical experience together. Participation is easy and fun as you model musical enjoyment for your child.
Who is the teacher?
