BABIES + MUSIC = MAGIC!
Why does your baby "bounce to the beat" when listening to certain songs? How can singing with your infant help them create neural pathways to aid in speech and communication? How will dancing with your baby help their gross and fine motor skills? Learn about music and how important it is to your baby's brain development.
Get a group of 6 families together to create your own class!
We can design a special class - either mixed age or specifically for babies - for you and your friends. Learn how incorporating music into your child's life will help them develop intellectually, physically, and emotionally. Babies are also welcome in our mixed-age classes and will get the same benefits, so register today and watch the magic unfold!
