Joyful Melodies Intergenerational Music Classes

I’ve heard from many of you that you want to enroll your child in an intergenerational music class, but that the current 8-week summer offering doesn’t fit into your schedule.   My two year old and I spent some time today making contact with additional retirement communities on the west side of Indianapolis to explore the option of adding additional summer and fall groups!  Subscribe to the blog to stay updated on future opportunities for your family.  We care about you, and really want you to be able to join us!

If it works in your schedule, there are still a few spots open in our current class offering that begins in June!  You and your 0-3 year old will have so much fun playing with other young children and building relationships with older adults in this special class.  Don’t miss out!

Until we see you in a class, make some joyful melodies at home!  Sing silly songs with your kids.  Don’t know where to start?  Try singing about something simple – what you are eating for dinner.  “Mary likes to eat, eat, eat, yummy strawberries!” was our dinner song tonight.

What’s the silliest song you’ve ever sung to your kids?  I’d love to hear from you!  Let me know by leaving a comment below.

Intergenerational Music Class!

Enroll your child in aI am so excited to announce that Joyful Melodies will be running Intergenerational Music Classes this summer!

These classes are for children ages 0-3 and at least one caregiver, and take place in a retirement community.  The activities are specifically designed by a board-certified music therapist to promote healthy child development while also engaging the older adults.  Everyone in the group has fun singing songs, playing instruments, reading, learning, and growing!

If you have been wanting to get your child involved in a music class, this is the class for you!  You’ll get all the benefits of an early childhood music class, plus the added bonus of helping your child build positive relationships with older adults.  If you have multiple children, you can pay a discounted rate to include all of your children rather than paying for each individually.

Senior Lifestyle wrote a great post about the benefits of intergenerational programming.  Read it here.

I found a clip on YouTube of another music therapy practice’s intergenerational programming.  Look how much fun the kids and adults are having!

Learn more about the specific offering, and then register!  We can’t wait to make music with you!

With joy,

Lauren
