Sprouting Melodies: Sing! Play! Move! Grow! for babies to 18 mos Online

Please note:  We are pushing back the start date for this series to October 22nd to allow for more registrations.


Are you looking for an interactive class that helps you learn how to use music to calm, stimulate, and bond with your child; to enhance your child's development; and to interact with your child through music? Join us for this virtual Sprouting Melodies Class, offered weekly for the next 8 weeks! 

This session combines Sprouting Melodies 1 and 2, designed for babies newborn to 18 months. This session will offer different ideas and suggestions for ways to participate with new babies, older babies, and young toddlers.

Even at the earliest stages of development, we know that infants are stimulated and comforted by music. Babies 0-9 months old participating in Sprouting Melodies 1 with their parent or caregiver will be joining in simple song structures that increase their awareness of themselves and others, nurture healthy bonds and develop trust with the world around them. The repetition of musical experiences designed specifically for your little one will lay the groundwork for a life full of learning!

For babies and young toddlers, music is all about exploring! Exploring the sounds, the touch, the feel, and yes, even the taste of everything around them! The active music making and music listening in Sprouting Melodies 2 is designed to support children 6-18 months old as they build trust and increase their understanding of the world around them. The engaging songs immerse the babies in the musical experiences and provide many new ways to learn about themselves.

Please register online for this class; the private Zoom link for class will be emailed to you by library staff. If you have any questions, please call Jill at the Library at 651-275-4416. A kit with a scarf, shaker and a board book will be provided to participants. Kits can be picked up at the Bayport Library the week before the program begins.  As this class is virtual, it is open to all in the area, we would just ask that you pick up the kit at the Bayport Library.  You can also participate with instruments made at home.  

This program is presented by Living Spirit Therapy Services, LLC and funded by the Foundation for Bayport Public Library. If you appreciate this free class and would like to fund more programs like this, please consider a donation to the Foundation.
