While making music and having fun hold centre stage during Let’s Jam!, there is so much more going on behind the curtains! When we rock along with our instruments, the kids will be learning different aspects of musical rhythm and simultaneously fine-tuning those motor skills that will help score that goal, hike that trail, or knit that scarf. Writing songs together allows for expression and exploration, leads to conversation with others, and provides a lasting project. On top of just being fun, moving to music provides exercise and releases dopamine, that ‘feel good’ hormone. Our classes will be structured around themes that inspire unfamiliar instruments to explore, different ways to move, new music to listen to, and original songs to write and sing.
