Music Adventures for 2-4 year olds

Music Adventures for 2-4 year olds.

Next events: 29 January and 12 February, 2 – 2.45pm (click for Facebook events and all details). Also a class for older children on 12 February. See the Facebook event page here.

Today is all about beats and counting. Whip up a storm with the rainstick and thunderbox and let’s all head down to the rainforest, where we will jump and croak like treefrogs and catch flies on our ‘tongues’. Then we will form a regiment of army ants, marching and drumming our way round the room. We will then try some bird sounds using occarinas.
Of course there will be plenty of time for singing, dancing, and jamming with the instrument box.

£6 per child by bank transfer or paypal, please book in advance. crayonrockrecords@gmail.com for booking or more info (including bank transfer details).

Music Adventures is a new fun and inclusive music group for 2-4 year olds. The children will learn about creating and appreciating music through pretend play and movement, and every session will include an introduction to a new instrument (whereever hygenic and safe the children will be allowed to handle and play the main instrument). There will be dancing, plenty of time to play a wide range of real instruments and a trip on the magic carpet to a new theme each session.

Early musical education helps with all areas of life, in particular listening, turn taking, counting, sharing, body awareness, co-ordination, concentration, confidence and self expression. However this is not a classroom situation! We will be being very silly and loud. There will be no wrong answers and the sessions will evolve to suit the character and experience of the children present. Music is a social and joyous thing and this is the main message I wish to pass on.

Payment will be on a session by session basis, not by term, so if your child finds they do not enjoy it or if you would just like to explore their favourite themes there is no pressure or extra cost. I do request advance booking, to control class size.

Children with extra needs are welcomed and the age range is a recommendation, not a rule. This venue is downstairs and we can open the fire doors for wheelchair access. This session will involve drumming and thundery noises, although they shouldn’t be excessively loud. Please let me know when paying if there is anything special which will make it easier for your child to take part.
