Level 1 classes offer a sensory-rich, yet caring and gentle environment where infants and young toddlers will explore and react to new sounds, sensations, objects, and movements.

Fiddle-dee-dee: Creatures of the animal kingdom, whether furry, web-footed, hoofed, winged, or whiskered, are the subject matter for Fiddle-Dee-Dee. Animal sounds, which are so appealing to children, naturally prompt imitation and provide abundant active listening and vocal play material. In the context of moving like animals, we will focus on concepts such as high, low, smooth, bumpy, fast, and slow. On the At Home CDs, you will hear a clear emphasis on the stringed instrument family, with instruments such as the mandolin, banjo, lute, classical and folk guitar, harp, string quartet, and double bass.                                     14 week session
