Adventure In Music

Thank you for visiting Adventure In Music. 

 These classes have been specially designed using both my background in music and music therapy. Activities in these classes not only target the learning of musical concepts and musicianship, but also incorporate reaching goals in all other domains of child development, such as Language/speech, Social, Emotional, Physical (fine and gross motor), cognitive, spiritual/creative.
All of my music and movement classes are based upon the pedagogical methodologies of Zoltan Kodaly, Carl Orff, and Emile Jaques-Dalcroze, three leading methodologies in children’s music and movement classes.
Using a variety of pitched and non-pitched percussion instruments and props we explore a variety of musical concepts (rhythm, pitch, tempo, dynamics, etc).
We’ll sing songs, chant rhymes, play instruments together, let out a laugh during parachute time and enjoy a snuggle or dance with your child. All of the class activities encourage language development, socialization, bonding, and motor skill development. All music and movement programs require parent/caregiver participation.

    Thank you Jennifer for the care you put into planning Musical Partytime. Our family thoroughly enjoys the Sunday sessions. The variety of instruments add great learning value. Do you teach other classes?

    Hi Teresa,
    Thanks for the compliment 🙂 Teaching music to children and families is definitely one of my passions in life and I’m thankful to be able to do what I love. I do teach other classes, in fact, I should have a page with my class schedule! (I’m not the greatest at marketing my classes… one of the things I’m slowly learning how to do…lol). I teach Mother Goose classes at Hastings Community Centre on Monday mornings and at Templeton Park Pool on Friday afternoons. I teach Musical Babies at Templeton Friday afternoons, Musical party time at Hastings CC Wednesday mornings, and I teach for the Capilano University Children’s Community Music School Friday mornings and Saturday mornings.
