Let's Jam with Miss Kaitlyn

Let’s Jam with Miss Kaitlyn

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.

Together with Heather PreSchool Adventure

Together with Heather Music classes are designed to instill a lifelong love of music, starting at a young age. Based on the understanding that children learn best through play, the focus is on being involved and having fun. The kids don’t even realize how much they’re learning! Besides early music concepts involving tempo, pitch, and rhythm, other important pre-school concepts such as sharing, turn-taking, and being brave are approached, all in a comfortable group setting where children are encouraged to participate at their own comfort level. In any given class you can expect dancing or movement, introduction to a new instrument, puppets or other visual props, and more – plus LOTS of original music that parents enjoy as much as the kids. You may be singing the songs for years to come…
