Brian's Music Time​​
1-3 year olds
In this program, Brian brings his love for children, his guitar and award-winning music, and his thirty years of early childhood teaching experience. He will teach your child to sing twelve “Songs of the Month” and how to play percussion, including the tambourine, bells, maraca, wooden block and castanet. Your child will learn about musical genres like rock 'n roll, reggae, bluegrass, jazz, funk, blues, calypso and hard rock in twelve dances. They will also learn four rhythms, including “Drum-Clap” and the waltz. In addition, your child will explore music theory (dynamics, tempo, tones and chord types) and learn movement skills (balance, flexibility, body positions and locomotion) in a positive and patient atmosphere designed to nurture your child’s innate joy for music and movement.
