Morning Music: Jamberry Jams (R$)
05/29/2015
10:15-11am
Morning Music is a four-week exploratory early music education class for children ages 0-3 and their parents/caregivers that helps provide a foundation for musical learning. Early music education helps babies and toddlers develop listening and language skills, fine and gross motor skills, spatial reasoning and awareness of space and rhythm. Music also forms community: we will all work together, take turns and make connections as we work on our songs and skills.

Summer is almost here! Let's get moving and grooving into berry-picking season with the rhythmic children's book Jamberry by Bruce Degan. Following the story of a little boy and a bear searching for berries, we'll help them out by counting, clapping and stomping along to the rhythm. We'll also be dancing and moving to some other favorite bear and teddy bear jams, and maybe even acting and dancing like bears ourselves! Over the course of four weeks, we'll see how we can change our rhythm to make the songs go fast, slow, loud and soft, and how that changes the way we move and listen to music.

At the end of the session, caregivers will receive a packet of movement and rhythm exercises to bring some of our class activities home. Class meets Fridays, May 29th, and June 12th, 19th and 26th. (Note: no class June 5th.)

$60/member, $80/visitor. To register call 828-1234 x231 or stop by the front desk.
