Early Childhood Music Classes at EMU Community Music Academy
Disclosure: Community Music Academy has sponsored this post about their fall Early Childhood Music Classes. All opinions are my own.
Are you looking for infant, toddler, or preschool music classes? The Early Childhood Music Classes at Eastern Michigan University’s Community Music Academy are a great choice.
Early Childhood Music Classes
EMU’s Community Music Academy offers Early Childhood Music Classes for children under the age of 5 accompanied by a parent or caretaker. The classes are for ages 0-3 or ages 3-5.
The goal of the program is to give a foundation for lifelong music making and enjoyment. The classes immerse children in the world of music in different ways – singing, moving, and playing. Kids are encouraged to move to the music with props such as scarves and streamers. Each week they get a chance to make music with small percussion instruments like bells, shakers, and sticks. There will also be singing and chanting.
Our Experience with the Early Childhood Music Classes
We attended these classes when my daughter was a toddler. She always enjoyed the classes. She loved have a friend attend with us. I definitely recommend registering with a friend. They loved dancing with the scarves. One of my daughter’s favorite parts was the plastic microphones. We had to get her one for home too.
I loved the small class size and individual attention that they received. We only attended two sessions before a schedule change meant the class no longer worked for us.
Each class is 45 minutes and there are 8 classes in the session. The fall session will run from September 26 through November 21 (no class on Halloween). All classes will be taught in EMU’s Alexander Music Building by Ms. Amy Sierzega, a music teacher at Ann Arbor Public Schools. Parking instructions will be provided after registration.
