Los Angeles 411: Melodies and Me, Burbank
Dear all the stay-at-home child caregivers in the Los Angeles County, are you looking for a way to help inspire the musical genius in you baby, infant, toddler or child? One such way is to introduce your little one to the world of music during the early years. Research has shown that exposure to music at a young age can help bring out children's innate musical ability. At Melodies and Me, your child will be able to listen to a range of musical genres, including multi-cultural selections with your help and the guidance of a trained music teacher.
During each of the 45-minute classes, your child will learn to play age-appropriate instruments just right for their little hands, sing in tune and keep in time with various beats. The curriculum also includes an introduction to folk songs, provides fun with finger-plays and encourages dancing to music of different meters and tonalities.
While you and your child drum, stomp and play with music you will be sure to create lasting memories as you bond with each other more deeply. Engaging in Melodies and Me activities will also help develop your child's motor skills as they clap and bounce about. Though their curriculum is structured and based on research-proven methods, the weekly classes provide an experiential environment designed to let each child explore his or her environment and make discoveries on their own as well as with the group.
Classes are held each Fall, Winter and Spring in 10-week intervals and a 6-week session during the Summer. The classes are for mixed age groups. The first group is for ages 0-5; the second group is for ages 3-5. Both include a wide variety of age-appropriate, hands-on activities. Included with the tuition, each child receives two CDs and a songbook to bring home with them for further learning enrichment. To sign up for a Melodies and Me class, please call (818) 641-6323.
