This is 30 minutes of fun music and movement activities to enjoy with your baby.
Sessions are structured and meticulously planned for this infant stage so that a range of contrasting activities are covered in a short amount of time. Repetition and routine are very important, and so the sessions tend to follow the same pattern; calm, quiet and static musical activities at the beginnings and ends, with a great deal of hilarity and mayhem sandwiched in between! Because the sessions run in blocks, they provide continuity and stability to the babies. This means that they can soon begin to predict ‘what comes next’ for themselves, and this anticipation builds their confidence which in turn feeds into all aspects of their development - cognitive, social and physical. Because so much of human development depends on the ability to time responses precisely, all the activities are designed to have this as a primary focus. Using songs, games, instruments, movements and props, the pulse is established effortlessly through a variety of ways. No musical expertise or experience is necessary to take part, and neither is a great singing voice. It is all about the enthusiasm and enjoyment that you get from interacting in musical ways with your little one.
Not at all!
Enthusiasm and a willingness to join in is essential, a singing voice is not!! (as you will find out when you hear Clare sing!)
You and your child will experience a range of sensory activities (listening, singing, moving, handling objects and instruments, interacting etc) that are set to music
Both babies and their carers benefit from taking part in the opportunity to relate to each other through music.
Because this proven method of learning has been developed and used in a wide variety of settings for many years.
All the materials have been created through a longstanding collaboration between an Early Years’ expert and a professional musician.
Inspiration for developing these music sessions has been drawn from a wide variety of influences; Froebel, Emilia Reggio, Dalcroze, Kodaly, Orff etc.
