Things sure have been busy here at Wholesome Harmonies! Since the beginning of the new year we’ve added two board-certified therapists to our team started twelve new clients. Hooray! We offer a variety of services to those in and around the Miami area: group and individual music therapy, music lessons, and developmental music programs.
Today I’ll be sharing some information on the developmental music programs I provide at the libraries here in Miami. These stemmed out of my creation for young children: Rockin’ and Readin’ at the Library, which targets literacy skills through music, movement, and song stories. You can read more about my Rockin’ and Readin’ at the Library program HERE and more about how to start your own program HERE.
Mommy & Me at the Library is a developmental music program that I offer at various libraries throughout Miami Dade County. We use the term “mommy and me” casually – daddies, grandparents, and caregivers are all most welcome to join! We offer programs for both babies and for toddlers. In these groups, I utilize developmentally appropriate songs and activities to encourage interaction between caregivers and baby or toddler and to work on basic developmental skills.
Babies and toddlers will explore instruments, scarves, shakers, singing, and movement to music to work on growth in the areas of social, communication, physical, and emotional development. All songs are original to ensure they are goal-oriented and live musical accompaniment is provided on guitar, keyboard, and omnichord. It’s always a rockin’ time!
Last month sessions were held at Miami Beach Library Branch. This month sessions are being held at Key Biscayne Library Branch. I hope you can join us! Here are the details for the next session:
When: Monday, March 31, 10:30 – 11:15am
Where: Key Biscayne Library Branch
Who: Babies & mommy/daddy/caregivers are all welcome
I am especially excited about these programs now because I am expecting my own little one…scheduled to make an appearance June 24th! I can feel her moving around every time I strum my guitar and sing. Looking forward to seeing you and your little one on March 31!
