Music Shakers Classes

Our classes are held in a comfortable room where young children sing, dance and play instruments along with their parents and siblings. We also offer a baby class which is designed for infants from a few weeks of age to walking.

Each class is approximately an hour in length and includes social time at the end to meet friends and enjoy complimentary refreshments.

Active participation from the parent or caregiver is important, since you are your child’s most important influence. 

Some people hesitate at first, and some doubt their musical abilities. However, everyone can enjoy singing, moving and playing with their child, echoing their sounds, responding non-verbally and giving active encouragement.  By joining in you will enhance the group’s experience and promote your child’s musical growth and development.

Children’s reactions to this new experience are varied. Many children will join right in, others may need some time to observe quietly without much active participation at first. Some others may explore the physical surroundings and have a hard time staying in the group.

All of these reactions are perfectly acceptable ways that young children take in a new situation. From experience most children will actively participate in the group after a few weeks time when they are more aware of what the program entails. Children absorb the musical experience even when they are not fully participating, and many will re-enact the sessions when they are in their homes.

Sessions are held beginning in September, January, April and August except for the Christmas and Easter holidays, school half-term breaks, and late July.
