So I think I mentioned these music classes that I take Anya to. She is a little over 2.5 right now and isn't going to any preschool yet, just because I hope to keep her home with me for another year or so. But I realized that she needed some regular interaction with kids in a group so I looked around and ended up taking her to these music classes that I absolutely love now. Ever since she was a baby, she has been very into music and even started humming to her favorite poems before she could say many words. With my husband being a talented closet guitarist and our common love for music, I would love for Anya to grow up to appreciate and enjoy good music. And the Music Together classes at the Seashell Music Academy are perfect for us.
These classes have been around since 1987 and the program is world renowned. The program has nine song collections that they divide into different semesters, so even if you take a couple of semesters, it doesn't get boring, even for the parent. In fact, of all the song/poem collections Anya has gone through, these ones are our favorite as even I don’t mind listening to these over and over again at all.
Here’s a little about this program via their website.
Music Together classes are based on the recognition that all children are musical. All children can learn to sing in tune, keep a beat, and participate with confidence in the music of our culture, provided that their early environment supports such learning. Music Together is an internationally recognized early childhood music and movement program for children from birth through age 7. By emphasizing actual music experiences rather than concepts about music, Music Together introduces children to the pleasures of making music instead of passively receiving it from CDs or TV.Go here to visit the Music Together website.
