music classes in Seattle, Washington
Musically Minded offers early childhood music education classes exclusively in childcare centers, preschools and home daycares in and around Seattle.
My Baby in Music class? Yes, and the sooner the better! Researchers have discovered infants respond to the rhythm and tempo of music and find it more engaging than speech (Zenter and Eurola, 2010). Musically Minded utilizes singing, dancing, instrument play and more as we expose babies to their first steps into musical play. Our trained music specialists offer our littlest music makers a variety of hands-on materials they can touch, taste, feel and see which foster their development in a multitude of domains. Through our sensory-based approach, infants develop both musical and non-musical skills right before our eyes. These positive experiences are what create vital connections in the brain that will last a lifetime. Enroll Your Child Today!
By this age, most children go from crawling to running. To keep up, our fast-paced class is designed to foster their growing curiosity by capturing their attention through play. Songs, musical stories and nursery rhymes lay the foundation for language acquisition while songs like “5 Little Speckled Frogs” teach math concepts that allow children to see that five minus one leaves four. Music and music experiences also support the formation of important brain connections that are being established over the first three years of life (Carlton 2000). With new activities around every corner, learning becomes as easy as 1-2-3! Enroll Your Child Today!
As our Budding Beethovens grow, we continue to provide a rich sensory environment for them to explore. Because of their increasing cognitive skills they are able to gain a deeper understanding of music concepts such as melody, rhythm and tempo. They are artfully woven into our theme-based units which pique their interests making learning more meaningful and memorable. We also recognize our partnership with the classroom in getting kids ready for school. Through songs, stories, instrument play and movement, preschoolers learn language, math, reading, creativity and more. All of which will set them up for success in school and life.
