Your child will love the playful and stimulating atmosphere of The Music Room... learning from adult role models as well as from friends.  Singing, dancing, playing musical instruments, listening and interacting with music of different styles and cultures.  Each week we briefly look at a different instrument.  Whether just born, or a few months or years old, your child will be allowed to interact at her/his own level in a supportive and nurturing environment.

Classes led by Paul Williams.

Music....a doorway into the imagination!
Children learn by observing and imitating their adult role models and their peers. This program allows children to experience music making in a family setting. In an age where many families live far apart and where T.V. has replaced the fireside, we can still give our children the opportunity to experience a group of people singing or, a favourite uncle playing a musical instrument. Before taking formal music training, learning and appreciating music at mother's knee or with a loved caregiver is an important part of a child's musical development. Hearing, speaking, feeling and loving the language of music before reading or writing it. Extra Aunties, Grandmas, Grandpas, relatives and etceteras welcome.

A note about gender.

In writing these notes, it is impossible to know whether your child is a he or a she.  My first instinct is to follow the rules of English grammar and just say "he" every time.

However, that doesn't seem quite right and always saying 'she' is equally not right.  We definitely cannot say 'it'!   "She/he" and "he/she' are just cumbersome and belong only on forms and official documents.  I don't know the answer to this dillemma and probably never will but, please rest assured, every person is given the same high degree of respect  in "The Music Room" and is included as an individual, rather than a member of a category.  Anyway, most of the time, we  speak the language of music which seems to not have the same snares and pitfalls as the written word.
