Music Playground ClassesLearn and play with award-winning children’s entertainer and recording artist, Dana! Fun and engaging classes incorporate an introduction to music, rhythm, rhyme, movement, literature and basic sign language. Original material by Dana, as well as familiar fingerplays, songs and bounces are included. Parents and caregivers are encouraged to join the fun and participate with their child.
We play with egg shakers, scarves, ribbon wands, clava (rhythm) sticks, ankle bells, bean bags, felt stories, Dana’s giant basket of rhythm instruments and of course, the ever popular parachute!
In order to create a consistent class size and a cohesive experience for the children, weekly attendance is encouraged. Consistency and repetition are key factors in a toddler’s ability to grow and learn. As the weeks progress, so will your child’s confidence and grasp of the songs, rhythms and rhymes. While we adults yearn for variety, our young children crave repetition and are empowered by the pride of knowing what is coming next. As the old quote says, “Repetition is the mother of learning. I repeat, repetition is the mother of learning!”
