Baby Music Playgroup
Infatn Classes for babies up to 12 months, are a gentle introduction to the experience of music-making. Moms, dads and caregivers create the experience for the youngest of the young, and as the babies grow, they become more active in their participation. Most "graduate" into mixed age classes sometime after their first birthday, all depending on their shifting nap schedules. While many babies are more comfortable with this approach, some do enjoy mixed-age classes, depending on their personality.
