Bilingual Baby & Toddler Rock

Baby & Toddler RockJoin our board-certified music therapists as they lead Bilingual Baby Rock & Toddler Rock, developmental music programs for little ones.

These classes are offered to babies (ages 0-2), toddlers (ages 2-4) and their caregivers, and are designed to provide musical experiences that enrich development.

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 in English and Spanish, 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!
