Baby Bounce and Play; Music class for 0 - 15 months with Ms. Clara (PDT!)
In business since June, '11
“What can you possibly teach an infant in an online music class?”
I LOVE being asked this question because one of the most rewarding experiences I have had as a teacher is watching parents' absolute amazement as their infant responds to our music classes. Neurons are firing like crazy, and infants are taking in every subtle nuance that will ultimately lead to an explosion of musical and non-musical skills.
And after over 10 years of offering energetic, playful, interactive, and educational music classes for little ones, we're going virtual!
So what can you expect in our virtual music classes?
Each virtual music class is packed full of creative and unique songs and rhymes, specifically written or selected to target developmental skills of infants and toddlers 15 months and under. (Siblings welcome at no charge. One registration per household).
So what makes the songs so unique?
As a 5th generation musician, a Northwestern alum with a Master’s in Marriage and Family Therapy, and the daughter of two symphony musicians, I personally wrote the majority of the curriculum to create a comprehensive and extremely high-quality (and very playful!) music program that is designed to target both musical and non-musical skills at every developmental level from infancy through kindergarten.
We have been offering over 25 virtual music classes a week for our regularly scheduled music classes since March 16th in our Ms. Clara’s Mini Musicians studio in Brookfield, IL (just outside of Chicago), and we have created an approach that translates perfectly to this virtual platform. Here are some comments parents and grandparents have shared with us:
“OMG!! Parker LOVES watching you!!! We’re watching your classes OVER and OVER! He requests it by patting on his knees, and when I ask him ‘do you want to watch Ms. Clara?’ He goes NUTS! This has become part of our daily routine, and I have shared the videos with everyone I can think of. Thank you for doing this for these kiddos!” -Christine R., mom
“I got the dishes done without an interruption during these classes. You’re my hero.” -Teresa S., mom of 2
“Savannah and Miles were mesmerized with your two virtual classes, as was I! I have watched it twice myself, it was so good. You have a gift of combing fun movement and song with a peaceful, joyful essence. I could see you becoming the future Ms. Clara of the Music World. You’re that gifted.” -Sherry, grandmother of 2

We are so excited to bring the spring season to life through engaging songs, rhymes, dances, and imaginative play. My number one goal is for our music classes to become the highlight of you and your child's day!

We will be using our instruments during class, so now is the time to be creative! Find those wooden spoons for rhythm sticks, turn over a mixing bowl for a drum, use a blanket for peek-a-boo...we got this!!
Nothing is required, but if you do happen to have instruments, we will be using the following:
Shaker eggs (2)
Rhythm sticks (2)
Colorful Peek-a-boo Scarf (1-2)
