Drum! Sing! Dance! Play! Create!
Designed for the growing years of birth to eight (with parents or caregivers) ... but older siblings, homeschoolers and others are welcome to join in the fun! Develop your inner musician--including the skills of rhythm and tone-- and a love for all things musical. Sing, play drums, dance to world music and meet guest instruments. Explore rhythm, language and tonal play! Puppets and stories too.
In classes we enjoy folksongs, fingerplays, dances and singing games, songs without words, small and large motor activities, puppets and more. Various rhythms and tonalities give the group a wide range of musical styles for optimum musical learning. Amy plays many instruments during the session, introducing the sounds of guitar, banjo, harmonica, keyboard, accordion, electric bass, mandolin, violin & ukuleles. Rhythm instruments used are bells, steel drum, djembes, shakers, triangles, and sticks as well as an assortment of other drums. You are welcome to bring in instruments from home also.
Creativity is encouraged with new activities each week. This program is for all adults who want to help their children develop a love of music, and who want to enjoy a weekly music and movement experience along with their children. Music is the "multi-vitamin of education" developing the mind, body, spirit!
At a Party, Amy brings animal puppets that talk, dancing props and rhythm instruments, along with banjo, guitar, and/or ukulele. Adults are welcome to sit with us and sing along, and join in the family dances! Your child's favorite toy or your party theme can be incorporated into the program, which lasts 45-60 minutes. Indoors or outdoors, large or small groups. Amy's CD is included and is mailed to you ahead of time (optional, get CD's at a discount to use as party favors).

"Amy, I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful job you
did at (our daughter's) party today. She has not stopped talking about it, and
her friends were replaying the puppet show before they left. Your
instant rapport with the kids was amazing --- getting (and keeping) 13
four-year-olds engaged is no easy feat, but you made it seem effortless.
It was such a gift for me to be able to sit back for an hour and watch my
daughter enjoy herself. We are looking forward to taking many more classes
with you in the future!" Erica, Merrimack NH.
