Come “Sing! Play! Move! Grow!” with Sprouting Melodies®, an award-winning early childhood music and movement program. We help young children grow and develop through music with songs, instrument play, and movement. Class size is limited to 12 students per class to enhance the experience for each caregiver and child.
Sprouting Melodies is the only early childhood music program created by music therapists and offered through board certified music therapists (MT-BC) who complete the Raising Harmony™ early childhood training. With their expertise in music therapy and special training in early childhood development, Sprouting Melodies Providers™ are uniquely qualified to cater to the needs of individual children within groups. They also teach parents how music can strengthen bonds, engage cooperation and transform situations within the family.
All the songs used in our Sprouting Melodies classes are created or adapted by Board Certified Music Therapists to address areas of development in young children. Music within class is live with accompaniment on guitar, ukulele, piano and percussion. No CD music means we follow the rhythm and tempo of the kids in that moment, not ask them to follow ours. Each 45-minute parent/child class is created to address areas of development in young children and encourage musical, social, pre-academic, physical, and emotional growth. Our evidence-based curriculum features both original and familiar songs that are easy for parents to sing along to.
Sprouting Melodies 1 & 2 for (0-18 months)
This class is designed to incorporate both the earliest stages of development and the beginning stages of babies exploration. The music provides stimulation and comfort for younger babies in the awareness phase of development and active music making for 6-18 month old in the trust phase of development. We will be increasing your little ones awareness of themselves and others and foster the building of trust and exploration through active music making and listening. This class is especially fun because we can see the growth of the little ones from 0-18 months old. The older babies have the opportunity to play with younger babies and 0-6 months old love watching their peers crawl, walk, and make music all around them. Sprouting Melodies 1 and 2 is a unique class where babies, parents, and caregivers learn and play together within the fun musical structure!

Songs become learned and mastered, and young children want to show off their new skills and independence. Within our music experiences, Sprouting Melodies 3 provides the routine that toddlers crave yet provides the freedom and creativity for children to grow in self-expression and to build social relationships with their peers in music.
