A hallmark of our new Arts Innovation Center for Andover and the Merrimack Valley are several of our fundamentally sound and exciting early childhood programs for music. These programs include Bongo Baby and today's feature, Kiddie Music Studio. This program was designed by our own Lexanne Mecklenborg.
Lexanne is a graduate of Anna Maria College where she studied early childhood development and music therapy. With assistance from Smash Music she developed Kiddie Music Studio, hosted exclusively by Smash Music and the Arts Innovation Center.
Here's Kiddie Music Studio from the creator:
Kiddie Music Studio was created with your child in mind. This class incorporates music with counting literature and fun activities that will keep you and your little one entertained and engaged. The activities are presented as informal, non-performance geared, musical experiences entertaining for children and easy for parents to participate in. We aim to empower parents, as the primary educators of children, by including them in the learning process. There will be many opportunities for the kiddos to exert their independence by practicing their decision making, problem solving, and listening skills. The classes are designed to foster a closer relationship between the parent and the child. We accomplish that by having parents work with their child to complete activities, as well as learn new things together. In addition to fostering a closer bond between parent and child, the little ones will learn about music through instrument play, singing, and association to everyday concepts like counting and taking turns.
“I created this class with you and your child. In mind. I wanted to create an atmosphere of learning and fun that everyone would benefit from. It’s a wonderful feeling to introduce an new concept or idea and see little eyes light up with delight and understanding. I hope to share my love of music and teaching with you and your little one in my class!”
