Age 2 years - 4 years MUSIC ROOTS will emphasize musical and verbal development through song. Toddlers and babies will be exposed to live music with instruments played and songs sung and led by the instructor. Movement and props will be incorporated to create rhythm as well as help illustrate some songs. Each child will be encouraged to participate at her/his own level in this nurturing, sensory musical classroom. Parents will bring new songs home that they can sing with their children, including some originals written by Susan. One main goal of this class is to facilitate a joyful music experience for children and their parents in a social environment. The facilitator, Susan Pepper, has a strong folk music background as well as teaching experience with children of all ages. She lives in Oxford and is the mother of a toddler. Note: If you would like to bring more than one child to a class, there is no problem with mixing age groups. Simply, sign up children for whichever class time you prefer.
