Tiny Tunemakers in action…
Your child will receive:
Weekly music and movement lessons delivered by a Tiny Tunemakers’ specialist
CDs so your child can share the music at home
Monthly parent newsletters featuring pictures and activities from class
Instruction tailored by individual interests and age (6-wk infants through kindergarten)
What to expect from our classes
Singing, imagination, creation, fun!
The benefits of creating music by singing are endless! Beyond the stress relieving effects and pure enjoyment, it also improves pre-reading skills such as phonemic awareness, syllable recognition and rhyming ability.
Creative movement and props
When you place a prop in a child’s hand, their inhibitions melt away. Children are now free to explore the space around them while developing their spatial awareness and move their bodies in new, creative ways.
Exploring rhythm instruments
We introduce children to a variety of small percussion instruments to develop steady beat, rhythm, improvisation and self regulation.
Studies have shown the inclusion of social and emotional learning (such as taking turns, working together, identifying emotions, etc) leads to improved academic achievement as well as enhanced motivation and kindness towards others.
A typical 30-minute class led by a Tiny Tunemakers’ specialist includes singing, instrument playing, creative movement, improvisation, prop use such as scarves or a parachute, musical story time, vocal exploration, dancing and fun!
Solid foundations of music curriculum
Developed by a veteran National Board Certified music teacher and keynote speaker at the Early Childhood Institute presented by CPS and the City of Chicago, our mission is to bring the magic and joy of music to all children!
We also send out monthly electronic newsletters featuring pictures from class and a summary of the learning taking place.
Each family receives two Tiny Tunemakers CDs each year to learn the songs alongside your child (also an amazing distraction in the car!).
