all ages: music class for ages 0-5y

Welcome to "All Ages": a Mixed Age/ Sibling Music Class for Ages 0 - 5

2017/18: Fridays @ 10:30 AM: FULL
Instructor: Shay Ryan

With older children ready to show the little ones how it's done and the younger ones eager to
learn, our all ages class becomes a multi-layered learning environment. The whole family can listen
to instruments and to each other, learn and explore together, and enjoy music and movement
with hoops, scarves and tumble-around play. Story time and family jams, puppet play
and happy singing—all of these activities encourage discovery and exploration and foster
sharing and social skills too. In this special class, your children will strengthen their ties with
each other and with you. It’s hard to find time for things you can all do together, but you’ll see
just how far music and together time can go.

What’s so fun about All Ages music class:

Singing. When a child sings in the appropriate vocal range, toddlers and preschoolers
begin to explore their voices and emerging pitch accuracy—but the benefits go beyond building
strong singers. Singing develops memory and recall, lung and cardiovascular strength, as well
as creativity, and socialization. Simply hearing those voices also helps a baby develop her own
vocal skills.

Playing. Musical instrument and prop-play throughout the semester builds strong finger
muscles, and develops a sense of rhythm. Plus bilibos, parachutes, scarves, and tumble-around
activities develop coordination.

Moving. With growing coordination and interest in their peers, younger children will watch the
older ones learn how to skip and gallop. Everyone will benefit from the focus on gross motor movement!

Listening. Throughout the class, the children are listening to instruments, to each other, and to specially designed opportunities to focus in on developing critical listening skills.

Story Time. When children listen to a story in a group, they watch the reactions of each other, helping to stimulate curiosity, expand knowledge, and develop a life-long love of reading.

Family Jam. Everyone grabs and instrument and plays along with the music—helping children experiment with a variety of instruments and sounds.
