Are you ready to start?
Our idea is to reinforce repetition and familiarity so the "Welcome" and "Goodbye" songs will always be the same. In this way, children will recognise the beginning and the end of the music class.
Follow my lead and sing the name of your baby / your name when I live the space for it:
I will sing "Hello music, hello Tiziana, hello (say your child'd name), hello (say your name)"
BABIES AND TODDLERS: place your child on your lap and move your legs gently to the beat of the song. Alternatively, you can swing your body from right to left. Move your whole body in a way that your child will feel your rhythm and and movements. Moving their little legs or hands doesn't actually help them to develop their sense of rhythms: it actually comes from making bigger movements.
OLDER CHILDREN: leave your child free to react to the music in the way they prefer. Some of them will probably start jumping and singing, some others will dance and some of them will stare at the screen without moving. We welcome every response because we all learn in different ways :)

I'm using a ukulele. Go to section "Instruments and objects used during the sessions" to discover where you can buy online and try these activities with you child.
