Bright Start Babies (0-18 months)

Enjoy rhythms and rhymes, learn some new lullabies, and have fun with your little one! Children are naturally curious about music from a very early age, and the positive atmosphere of this class helps foster lifelong connections with music, builds strong parent-child emotional bonds. The goal of this course is to expose you and your child to the basic concepts of music through sensory awareness and active participation, with particular attention paid to beat, rhythm, and listening skills.

You and your child will start to learn about the fundamentals of music through movement, singing, and play. The course is designed to foster basic cognitive skills through a musical framework and to help parents and caregivers learn ways to interact with the child through music. A typical class begins with a greeting song, followed by gentle bouncing games, fingerplays, movement, and playing with instruments. The class concludes with lullabies or other songs for all to enjoy. One parent or guardian accompanies their child for the full course.

Bright Start Toddler (19 – 36 months)

Confident, active toddlers become confident, active adults! Set your child on the right path by engaging them in music and movement-based play. This class focuses on developing gross motor function in toddlers by encouraging them to move their bodies in time to sounds and music.

At the age of 19-36 months, children are beginning to develop a more complex cognitive skill that will aid them later in life. These classes focus on cognitive skills relevant to music, such as sustaining attention, remembering songs, and recognizing perceptual cues. Children in these classes will learn how to apply these skills towards musical exploration and gain greater musical independence through basic musical skills. At this age, parents or caregivers assist their child’s musical creativity and gain further skills for musical interaction with their child. One parent or guardian accompanies their child for the full course.

Bright Start Little Musician (Age 3-4)

Singing, dancing, playing games - children adore this active, play-based learning environment. In this class, children learn foundational musical skills such as tempo, meter, pitch, and dynamics together through educational, movement-based songs and games. By age 3, children are beginning to develop their singing voices, and this class encourages that development.

At age 3 & 4, children's basic cognitive skills are in place. Bright Start is designed to work with these cognitive skills through activities such as recognizing musical patterns, focusing on the most important aspects of music, and understanding connections across artistic representations. Children work in musical and artistic collaborations designed to foster basic musical knowledge and spur individual and group creativity.

Socialization and personal growth are strengthened via group engagement.

This structured music program that introduces the elements of music exercises the 4 main cognitive skills:

  • Attention

  • Memory

  • Perception

  • Cognitive flexibility

 

Among all the activities, singing is one of the most important aspects. Young children have very sensitive ears. Through repeated listening and singing, children learn to recognize pitches and rhythms easily. It also develops in the child an overall musical sense, something crucial in music learning.
