Amy is currently teaching Rise and Sing classes in private homes!
This 45-minute class is designed for parents/caregivers and children to participate together in active music making, while building and strengthening genuine bonds of trust and communication. Since the brain is developing quickly from birth to age three, early childhood music involvement is a vital part of intellectual development. The music activities are designed to develop and support fine and gross motor skills, language and communication, early academic concepts such as color, shape, size, numbers, counting, space, and time, social skills such as sharing, cooperation, and teamwork, and self-esteem and confidence. Amy uses a multi-sensory approach to support intellectual development in an entertaining and nurturing environment.
What ages is this class appropriate for?
Classes are appropriate for children ages 4 months to 4 years and will be geared toward the specific ages of each class. Mixed age classes are welcome.
What sort of activities can be expected in this class?
Amy will lead the group through various activities including instrument playing (maracas, bells, castanets, tambourines, rhythm sticks, etc), bubbles, drumming, puppet play, lap rides, finger plays, musical story time, parachute, dancing and movement, creative/imaginative play, and lots of singing!
