Toddler Music Classes in Lewis Center, Ohio

Musicologie Junior is a musical adventure for toddlers and their parents, guardians or caretakers. At each class, we’ll sing songs, move our bodies, dance to different styles of music, read sing-along books, and play lots of musical instruments while your child reinforces her naturally-developing senses of rhythm, melody, rhyme, speech, and movement! We’ll incorporate methods from Kodaly, Dalcroze, and Orff. Ages 0-5.

How Our Music Classes for Toddlers Work

At Musicologie we know that music lessons are one of the most impactful investments you can make in your child. Learning music improves coordination, language, reading and math skills. It nurtures our emotional and cognitive health. Studying music literally makes our brains bigger. We designed Musicologie Junior to be a fun and easy way for your little one to interact with others and meet new friends in a stimulating educational environment.

Musicologie Junior is a 40 minute experiential music class for ages 6 months to five years. Classes will reinforce your child’s naturally growing musical and developmental skills. Each class follows a set format with nine sections, exploring different elements of music making.

Preparation for Private Lessons and Beyond

Many people think music ability is something you're either born with or you're not. That's not true! You have to develop talent. You have to learn rhythm. The way to achieve that is to start music exploration early. Kids can learn to be talented musicians, just like they learn to walk and talk.

Of course not everyone is going to be a famous musician, just like not everyone is a great speaker or runner. But we all learn to talk and to run. In the same way, we are all musicians. We just have to tap into it.

Our class does that through an experience and play-based curriculum that introduces kids to a variety of fundamental music concepts and ideas. We touch on solfege, scale patterns, improvisation, movement and rhythm patterns, and even basic note reading. We also reinforce preschool concepts like animals and sounds, body parts, colors, counting, opposites, following directions and sharing.

Is Musicologie Junior Different From Other Early Childhood Music Programs?

Yes, our toddler experience is different in a few key ways. First, it's mixed age. Bringing a sixteen month old together with a three year old in the same class benefits both kids. The younger one gets to see good behavior modeled in someone other than an adult, and the older child learns how to nurture, share and participate in educating the others. Other programs don't do this, not because it's not the ideal learning experience, but because it's a challenge to develop the curriculum and teacher training. Musicologie Junior was developed with this multi-age experience in mind with curriculum and teachers to match.

Second, it's hands on with real instruments. Each week has a different musical theme with an instrument to match. Kids get to see and touch and hear these instruments, and participate as they are able. We encourage a sense of exploration and fun with exposure to lots of instruments and music from many cultures and genres.
