Due to the current conditions of the pandemic, Session 3 First Music classes (April-June 2022) will take place in-person, indoors, WITH MASKS. Classes for under the age of 3 will be outdoors and masks are optional.

This class provides a wonderful opportunity for a parent or caregiver and toddler to discover the joys of making music in Spanish as they experience songs and activities from Spain and Latin America.

Children participate in musical activities such as singing songs and lullabies, chants, simple finger plays, wiggles, bounces, listening and movement.

Each week, simple percussion instruments are used and concepts such as body/spatial awareness, numbers, and colors are reinforced through musical play. Participants receive guidance on children’s musical development, along with tools that support the creation of a nurturing musical environment at home.

Whether you want to continue the Spanish your child already speaks at home or would just like to introduce your child to songs and dances in Spanish, this is a wonderful way to experience music with your child. No previous knowledge of Spanish is necessary.

Class activities and benefits include:

  • Opportunities to play basic percussion instruments such as shakers and drums
  • Repertoire of songs and activities in Spanish to use at home
  • Age-appropriate musical activities that support childhood development
  • Fostering of social development and exploration
  • Reinforcement of Spanish skills
Esta clase ofrece una gran oportunidad para que los adultos gozen con sus niños al hacer música en español con canciones de España y Latinoamérica. En las clases vamos a cantar, bailar, escuchar diferentes tipos de música y jugar juegos musicales. Si desea continuar el español que su hijo/hija habla en casa, o solo quiere divertirse con su hijo/hija mientras que aprende canciones y bailes en español, ésta es una actividad maravillosa.

Cada semana se utilzan instrumentos de percusión básicos, y se refuerzan conceptos como por ejemplo concienca corporal/espacial, números, y colores a través de juegos musicales. Los adultos reciben orientación sobre el desarrollo musical de los niños, asi como herramientas que apoyan la creación de un ambiente musical en el hogar.
