One of the few things I have always been excited to do with my kids are music lessons. I'd been looking for over a year for a class that wasn't cost prohibitive, both my kids could go to even though their ages are different, and that the scheduled time wasn't a problem. Enter the world of facebook, where an old friend linked to Around the Corner Music Studio and wrote that she and her son would be participating in the 2-PreK class. I jumped at the chance to read about this stuido, of which I never heard before, and the rest, as they say, is history!
I signed my children up for a 12 week (30 min session) "mommy + me" type class called "Let The Music Begin!". The great thing was it was a mid-morning class on a day where I never had anything planned, and the best part was that siblings under 2 were free! I signed up Lukka and Anikka for the price of 1 child, and I couldn't have been more thrilled.
They have learned many songs in the first 6 weeks, and played numerous instruments including shakers, triangles, sticks, bells and more. At week 6, the teacher, Mrs. Susie Munns, starts intregrating notes and rests, and has the children clap to the beat. She does repeat songs and the kids have learned the words and motions. Lukka and Anikka even know the words to a few of the songs! The teacher always has a huge smile on her face and all the children in the class absolutely love her. I highly encourage you, if you're local and looking for something like this, to try out Around the Corner Music Studio to help develop a love of music in your child! It has been very fun for our whole family!
