We tried a free class with Kathleen at the beginning of the fall and fell in love with her toddler class so we enrolled. My daughter is quite shy but really loves music. It has taken a few weeks but with Kathleen's patience my shy daughter is now leaving my lap and choosing her own instruments and during the put away song jumping up to help. At first she didn't want to get up from the security of my lap to do the movement activities but last week when Kathleen brought out the hula hoops she couldn't resist. We explored smooth and bouncy music using the hoops. It was great, what fun.
I am learning so many ways to explore music with my 18 month old with Kathleen's help. My daughter is learning how to put things away with the group so I use the same song at home and it really works.
Kathleen is a very experience, loving, patient teacher. She is always on time and teaches the songs and activities in a way that even parents that are unsure about singing feel good about trying.
The class is very active but the class routine is organized so that the children learn the routine, relax and learn because they know what to expect. We have already worked with over 30 songs and have 30 more to go this session. We are really learning lot together.
I will be signing up for more sessions in the future.
This is a class you should try out for yourself with a free lesson like I did. You and your child will be singing all the way home. Louise Roberts
