Baby Music Garden
3 - 15 months
every Wednesday 09.30h - 10.15h
What is the workshop about?
- Parent-child bonding
Feeling secure with slow dances. Encouraging language through singing together and learning baby sign language. All this strengthens your child's basic trust and thus also your unique bond.
- Sign language for babies
The earlier your child can communicate, the more self-confident it will be when it starts life! Did you know that babies begin to imitate the first signs as early as 6 months? The first sign is usually "milk". Through simple melodies you will learn the most important signs in no time. Believe me, your baby and all the people you care for will thank you!
- Unfettered discovery
With fine silk scarves, natural tonewoods and colourful shaker eggs our little ones learn to know and love the world of music. Without any expectation of performance.
- Encouraging motor development
- Finger and movement games, knee riders and light dances help your baby discover its body and learn new movements through play. Clapping for the first time, swaying to the beat or sweetly hopping up and down to the music is fun for babies and parents alike.
- First words
Mummy, Daddy or No? What will be your baby's first word? And what is the most important thing in language learning? Repetition! Add melody, movement and a big pinch of fun and we have the perfect recipe for early language development.
1.5 - 4 years
every Wednesday 10.30h - 11.15h
What is the workshop about?
- Always in motion
What could be cuter than watching a toddler swing its hips to music? Whether it's a stop dance, body parts Blues or cloth Waltz. Fun is guaranteed here! Of course, you can also "pack" the game ideas, songs and movement suggestions for home!
- Emotional balance
Music as a bridge to emotional balance. Naming feelings and dealing with them has to be learned. Let's help our children express themselves through voice and dance. All age groups can benefit from this.
- A variety of instruments
Discover what it means to "keep time" with percussion instruments such as timbrels, maracas or drums. Sounding instruments such as bells or xylophones enable the first steps into the world of sounds.
- Slow drum beats harmonize best with leisurely steps. Suddenly the drumming gets louder and faster and the children join in. And then... Everyone stops and listens to see what rhythm is coming next.
- A treasure of words
"This is high and this is low" the children sing as they first stretch their hands high in the air and then quickly bring them to the ground. Words, movement, music and play. Sensorimotor skills are the magic word here.
4 - 7 years
every Wednesday 14.00h - 15.00h
What is the workshop about?
- Movement and dance
We give free rein to our own creative movements or rehearse simple dance choreographies together. Movement is also essential in this group. By the way, the Carnival of the Animals is very popular with this age group!
- Basic knowledge through songs
Learn seasons, animals and other basic knowledge in a playful way. "Old MacDonald's Farm" and Schleich animals are the perfect combination for remembering animal names and sounds. Silk scarves as colourful leaves in autumn or icy snowballs in winter not only strengthen vocabulary but also inspire your child's imagination.
- Social interaction
When you play music together, you have to learn to play in harmony. Your child will learn to harmonize with other children in a safe, playful environment.
- Rhythm, dynamics and numbers
- A boy sits in the middle, holds a blue silk scarf in the air and counts in: 1,2,3,4! The mini-musicians around him know exactly what this means. We now play quietly and slowly! Now the little conductor switches to the red cloth. The music suddenly becomes louder and faster!
- The world of instruments
Sounding woods, bells, drums, various percussion instruments and the first approach to a real piano or drum set! The world of instruments is as versatile as your child's imagination. Are you curious to see which instrument fascinates your child the most?
