Mini Music is a Suzuki based baby/toddler music and movement class where child and parent participate in music based activities. Traditional songs and rhymes, rhythmic activities, and movement are the foundation of the program.
We will introduce your child to skills that will help develop their musical ear, language, focus, physical coordination, social skills, and confidence. Various repertoire from the Suzuki method is presented during class. Classes are kept small so we can observe your child’s development from week to week, and have a mixed age range so children can learn from one another.
Children from 0 to 36 months, accompanied by an adult, thoroughly enjoy this program while creating the foundation for the next chapter in their musical lives.
Mini Music is offered in 8 week sessions during the fall, winter and spring terms on Tuesday and Saturday mornings.

“Musical ability is not an inborn talent but an ability which can be developed. Any child who is properly trained can develop musical ability just as all children develop the ability to speak their mother tongue. The potential of every child is unlimited.” -Dr. Shinichi Suzuki
