Spring Semester 2017: Music classes for babies and toddlers

Looking for something fun and educational in Abilene, Texas?

Have you often wanted something fun to do with your little ones?  Something simple, non-threatening, but educational?  We deliberately play and learn with babies every week!  Baby Music of Abilene is one of only eight Suzuki Early Childhood programs in the state of Texas.  We are so proud of this program established four years ago.  We traveled far and trained long to learn the special curriculum for YOUR baby, birth to four years.  Every week we include activities such as those pictured below.  Each student has the opportunity to play instruments of high quality, to learn useful skills such as counting, pre-reading, and listening.  Social skills practiced every week include taking turns, listening to and encouraging one another, politely greeting each one in the class, quieting oneself, and much more!  Moms learn to be more creative and to better observe their children. Activities vary from quiet to exciting to copying to creating to quiet.  Twice a year we share our skills with an audience. In Spring we participate in a recital. At Christmas we share at a retirement center. 

The Lollipop drum is a weekly popular activity!  We listen, play and become creative.

The happy ending to every class includes reading specially chosen books. We choose them for their illustrations as well as the story, rhythm of the language and vocabulary.

Listening and demonstrating that we hear and can create the high and low pitches on a high quality, beautifully tuned glockenspiel is a fun and favorite part of each week's curriculum.  The solos are shared each week.  Sometimes, not EVERYONE gets a turn.  Important to learn!
