Children and one caregiver participate in a variety of classroom activities to develop basic musical skills! The caregiver stays in class and participates with their child!
In addition to in-class activities, we highly encourage music exploration in the home! Those who register will be given access to a Children's Music Playlist and caregivers will be taught a "Song of the Week" to use at home. These songs are great to sing while doing daily tasks with your child (e.g. changing a diaper, cleaning up, getting dressed, and more!).
All of our teachers are certified in Early Childhood Level 1 through the Gordon Institute of Music Learning, and are currently Music Education majors at the University of Delaware. All classes are held in the Amy E. DuPont Music Building on the University of Delaware campus.
order to control class size, siblings are welcome to attend their
brother's or sister's classes only if they are registered. Siblings may
be registered for a flat fee of $75 per semester.

Music for Babies brings the joy of music and movement to the lives of very young children and their parents or other caregivers. Weekly classes consist of singing and other vocal activities, movement, listening, and simple instrument playing. Through these activities, our teachers and assistants aim to create an environment in which the child’s musical instincts are nurtured and fundamental musical skills are developed.

Little Music Makers focuses on the musical development of young children within a childcentered environment. This class will help children develop a fundamental understanding of music by providing a rich musical environment, including singing, rhythmic chanting, playing instruments, and stylistic movement. With these fun activities, teachers and children will begin to engage in improvisation, allowing children to express their own musical ideas. Our teachers’ goal is to use fun-filled activities to prepare children for formal music learning!
Section 1: 9:30 am – 10:15 am
This class will continue a child’s musical development by bridging the gap between informal and formal music learning and preparing them with the aural foundation for instrumental instruction. Teachers will provide instruction on beat competency in various meters through the use of rhythmic poems/chants and instrument playing. Teachers encourage free movement through creative movement activities and we work on the development of listening skills. Children will also learn to develop and expand their singing voice through the exploration of music in various genres. Children in Hands on Music provides the opportunity for further instrument exploration, such as tone bars! They will be given both individualized and class instruction while learning musical skills and most importantly, having fun!
