Musical Playdate

Musical Playdate is a program for toddlers (1.5 - 3 years old) and their parents or caregivers. It is a 30-minute session of music-based play that includes singing, games, story telling and exploration of various age-appropriate instruments.  The program is child-focused which aims to stimulate a child's early musical awareness and learning through music.  Expect fun and games as we keep a steady beat and coordinated movements, sing action songs, and experiment with different pitches and timbres. Toddlers respond to music best when they are actively engaged in it.  In the class, toddlers are encouraged to listen and respond to music creatively.
