Mini Music, where parents and children sing, dance and play together!

“When we arrive at her class each week my one year old just beams . . .”

A Mini Music class is a forty-five minute interactive musical experience. Infants, toddlers and preschoolers (ages infant-5) are accompanied in the class by a parent, grandparent or caregiver.  From the time the class begins to the sweet closing song, it is a journey through both upbeat and mellow movements, major and minor song keys and different time signatures and rhythmic rhymes.  Children and grown-ups will play instruments including resonator bells, drums and other percussive instruments, and dance with props including parachutes, ribbons and scarves.

Creator, Ali Mann, leads several of the classes with Warren Mann accompanying on guitar, banjo and mandolin. Additionally there are several other trained teachers who are also musicians leading classes (see Bios on Instructor Page). Each session comes with a CD containing twenty to twenty-two songs - original, traditional and modern - recorded by Ali, Warren and various local musicians.

Over the course of the ten-week session (summer session is six weeks) all songs will be introduced and developed.  Rhythmic and tonal patterns will be practiced encouraging growth in both babies’ and grown-ups’ musical understanding.  Movement and dance will provide a visual and visceral musical lesson in addition to being fun and engaging.

Mini Music classes are highly educational, rich with joy, and provide a beautiful bonding experience between child and parent or caregiver never to be forgotten.
