Music Classes — Spring 2024
Each early childhood music class is filled with fun and laughter. Children learn to keep a steady beat, match pitches, and develop memory skills while also improving language skills and motor skills. Children and caregivers participate together.
The recommended age range for these classes is birth to six. Children who are older, but a good match developmentally, are welcome to attend.
Infants who are 9 months or younger on the first day of class attend for FREE! Babies receive a tremendous benefit by simply being present and hearing music in a variety of meters and keys, the same as learning to speak by listening to people around them talk.
Instrument kits are available for purchase from Bear Paw Creek. Each family will bring their own instruments to class which means the instruments will also be available for reinforcement of learning outside of class!

"Classes are full of hands-on experience with instruments and repetition of music so the children really learn the songs by the end of the semester. Miss Kathy is very friendly and warm and keeps mixing things up throughout the half hour to keep the children engaged."
"Miss Kathy provided a mix of instruments that strengthened the children's dexterity while retaining their interest. My daughter looked forward to finding out which instruments we would be playing in the next class. Miss Kathy was wonderful with all of the kids and engaged with each child at their level."
"The focused one on one activity with my son is what is most important to me but the fun we have doing it is an extra bonus. Miss Kathy gets all the kids involved, engaged and having fun."
