What a great fall it has been with all of you! We just finished our North Las Vegas Library 5-part series, "Music Around the World" and experienced everything from a Hawaiian hula to a Fijian drum circle! What a blast it was! We love our libraries! Please give them a huge thank you when you visit next for providing excellent family resources!
We are headed into winter and I am so excited to share our new materials with you next week, December 5th! We will begin the Sticks and Tiger collections, which are some of my favorites!
Mixed age class - Sticks: "Your child will love going for a musical ride with "Ridin' in the Car" and "Trot to Grandma's House" this winter. We'll dance with "Don Alfredo baila," march and scamper with "The Tailor and the Mouse," and go "Pop!" with that good ol' classic weasel! You'll have plenty of great new songs and chants to keep the music going all winter long!"
Rhythm kids class - Tiger: "In the upcoming Tiger Collection, our class will playfully prowl, growl, and pounce like tigers as we explore unique drumming patterns based on rhythms from Mali and India! So neat! They will discover and learn songs from diverse cultures, and in several languages, even Telugu, the enchanting, lilting language of Southern India."
I enjoyed an article by Music Together this month about babies and the positive influence music has on their development!
Did you know, when you sing, bounce, dance, or play with music, at least eight areas of baby’s brain are activated simultaneously! During the first three years of life, babies brains develop so rapidly they are making hundreds of connections every second! Experiences determine which connections last a lifetime. Musical experiences in the first year help shape your baby's brain for lifelong learning in all areas. Because music activates so much of the brain it is very beneficial during this crucial time of development. Music shapes biology, neurology, language development, emotional connection and self regulation! What's better than all of those benefits that come from actively listening and interacting with music with our babies and toddlers? Nothing! You are setting them up for success having them in Music Together! Check out the full article below!
Don't forget! Gift cards are available on the website and make wonderful experience-based Christmas gifts for friends and family! (Or great wish-list items from grandparents! 😉❤️
