In this interactive, class we will discover music through chanting, singing, vocal and finger plays, movement, and more. In addition to being a great way to bond with your baby, these classes are specifically designed by a Music therapist to nurture the social, emotional, cognitive, language, physical, and musical development of your child.
This Fall I will be offering classes that will take place outdoors if the weather is mild and online otherwise. Due to Novel Coronovirus/COVID-19, participation in outdoor, in-person classes is at your own risk.
In regards to the outdoor, in-person classes, I will do my best to follow steps which will help to reduce chances of Covid-19 transmission, such as, class sizes will be limited to 8 families per class and each family will be encouraged to space themselves 2 metres/6 feet apart from other families. I also ask that if anyone (yourself or anyone in your household) show any symptoms of Covid-19, to please stay at home. If it happens to rain, there is a fair chance of rain, or if it is really not nice out, we will have our class on-line that day.
Everyone will need to bring a blanket or towel to sit on, as the grass can sometimes be very wet in the morning. There are a few options for using instruments during class: 1) I can bring instruments that have been disinfected prior to each class (which I normally do anyways to avoid transmission of regular cold & flu) 2) you bring your own instruments or things we would use for the virtual classes; or 3) I will be sending out an email asking registrants if they’d like me to order them instruments. Once registered, you will receive an email asking which option you prefer.
Classes will be offered on: Tuesdays at Pandora Park (W of Nanaimo at Pandora) starting Sept 15th – Dec 1st from 10:15-11:00am and Saturdays at Callister Park (W of Renfrew at Cambridge) starting Sept 19th – December 12th from 10:00-10:45am. *Location may be changed, within same vicinity
Cost of class is $120 for 12 sessions
If there is a high demand for these classes and they fill up, I will try to add other days/times/locations. Drop-ins for in person classes is not possible, however drop ins will be allowed for any of the online classes.
If the cost of this class poses a challenge for your family, please contact me and we can work something out. No one should miss out on music class due to financial barriers.
