Lil' Vibes is a program specifically designed for baby and preschool aged children to start the love of music early! Music is proven to be an important part in the development of children in the early years.
Everyone, at any age, can enjoy listening to music. All they need to do is attend, perceive, relax, and enjoy. If three- and four-year-olds have had sufficient background experiences with music, they can listen attentively, picking out sounds of specific instruments from a recording if they have been introduced to the instrument. They enjoy making their own sounds as they listen to music, applying concepts of loud, soft, happy, sad, light, heavy, fast, or slow.
Five-year-olds advance from making gross discriminations in sounds to making fine discriminations. They are able to listen to a story song, piano selection, or recording of an orchestra and can discuss the performance and their listening experience as well (MENC, 1994).
This class meets every Thursday morning for 7 consecutive weeks, and encourages young ones to play, sing, dance and move with music, games and toys!
