MUSIC FOR TODDLERS ONLINE
Explorers of Multicultural Music!
Sing. Dance. Play.
Music for Toddlers-Explorers of Multicultural Music is a singalong-style course that focuses on music from around the globe. Learn about different countries and cultures through fun music songs and dances. This course continues to develop your child’s music appreciation, musical ear, motor skills, and cognitive function, all while doing fun musical play.
In this singalong-style course, parent and child will learn up to 4 songs with some selections rotating seasonally and will explore basic rhythms through movements and clapping. In addition to learning and building their appreciation of music, children will be able to interact and learn to communicate with other children their age through “sharing time” and group activities.
This course helps develop an understanding and appreciation of other cultures and continues to encourage parents to learn how to interact musically with their child and how to incorporate fun music lessons at home. Each child will have the opportunity to make their own musical instrument and then use it in class!

Frequently Asked Questions
- How are the classes structured? Each class will be formatted in the same way to create structure and so students know what to expect. The class will include interactive exercises such as “sharing time,” to work on communication, social skills and have kids interact with kids their own age. There will be a Dropbox for any materials or song tracks that families may need for each class.
- My child has a short attention span, what if they don’t stay still? There are many benefits of these classes being offered online: they are in your own home, they are flexible, and they are fast-paced. These classes are developed in a way to work on skills such as attention span, memory, and communication.
- Do the music classes require parents to have any musical skills? No, these classes are perfect for both parents and students that have little to no music experience! It is such a special experience to see parents learn along with their children.
