Spring Into the Miami-Dade Public Libraries for Music Time

Spring is in the air!

Well, here in Miami, I guess it always feels like Spring.

But there’s something so refreshing about the days staying lighter longer.

With the coming of Spring, I want to share with you about the new Spring schedule that’s out for our Baby & Toddler Rock programs. These sessions are presented in partnership with the Miami-Dade Public Library System.

Here’s what we’ve got going on for babies & toddlers:

Baby Rock:
Saturday April 15th; 11:00 – 11:30am
South Shore Library Branch, 131 Alton Road, Miami Beach, FL

Tuesday April 18th; 11:00 – 11:30am
Miami Beach Regional Branch, 227 22 Street, Miami Beach, FL

Friday May 12th; 11:00 – 11:30am
Key Biscayne Library, 299 Crandon Blvd, Key Biscayne, FL

Baby & Toddler Rock:
Friday May 19th; 10:15 – 10:45am
International Mall Branch, 10315 NW 12 St, Doral, FL

Baby Rock is for babies ages 0-2 and their caregivers; Toddler Rock is for toddlers ages 2-4 and their caregivers. These sessions are designed to provide musical experiences that enrich development.

What can you expect at a Baby or Toddler Rock music session?

In our sessions, we utilize developmentally appropriate songs and activities to encourage interaction between caregivers and their little ones and to work on basic developmental skills.

Little ones will explore a variety of musical instruments and props such as scarves, parachute, stretchy band, and puppets. We’ll also be singing, reading books with songs and moving to music to work on growth in the areas of social, communication, physical, and emotional development.

In our sessions, we use both original and familiar songs so you’ll be singing along in no time! Live musical accompaniment is provided on guitar, keyboard, and omnichord, and we utilize a variety of musical styles like samba, country and rock and roll.

All sessions are FREE and no registration is required. We hope to see you there!
