1-2 Year Olds
In these classes over the weeks the children will begin to develop awareness of their own body and internal pulse, (feeling the beat).
This is achieved through their parents / carers with actions such as knee bouncing, rocking and gentle tapping of different parts of their body. These actions are performed while enjoying various rhymes and songs in addition to moving in simple circle dances.
Is this the right class for your child? ——– although this class age starts from about 1 year old it is amazing how quickly they will progress especially if there are older wee ones attending the class. In this class children up to 2 1/2yrs old can happily come along and the materials used will be adapted to suit so they will never be bored. If they have never attended this type of music class before then this class is a perfect starting point. children can be moved up to suit how they are progressing. However, please contact me to discuss this further as it isn’t all about their age, they need to feel comfortable and happy in the class.
Due to current Covid-19 pandemic Music box classes have been suspended for the time being. Hopefully classes will be able to restart as soon as we are given permission to do so.
However, in the meantime I am posting weekly bitesize Music box class videos in the private family group accessible through the main Music box facebook page until the end of June 2020. These are divided into 2 age groups (1-3yrs and 3- 5yrs). I am also posting other musical ideas and book readings. (If you have been attending Music box or would like to consider joining us you can ask to have access to the private group by liking the main facebook page (MUSICBOXKEY) and once I receive notification I can invite you to join.)
I am not charging for the posts but any donations would be appreciated. If you contact me on my email I can advise you on how to donate. All proceeds, along with some fund raising being done by my 2 children as well, will go to the NHS, the Carers Support Trust and towards out local food bank support.

(45 Minute Class)
In addition to learning and experiencing music the classes support other early years development such as coordination (clapping, tapping), language, imagination, listening, confidence, social skills (sharing, waiting for their turn), memory and concentration. Their many senses will be further engaged through interaction and use of scarves, puppets, ribbons, simple percussion instruments and many more props. They will feel the different dynamics – loud and quiet, fast and slow and high and low which are not just applicable to music.
At the beginning of every class we sing a ‘hello’ song and individual ‘hellos’ to each child. To finish we end with cuddling teddies and listening to a variety of music, different styles and cultures, (mainly soothing lullabies) before finally singing our ‘goodbye’ song.
