Designed for children ages 0-5 and a caregiver, Tots with Tempo uses easy to learn, interactive songs which introduce basic musical concepts to your little rockstar while sparking a lifelong love for music. Our rich repertoire of songs pulls from a diverse selection of music ranging from traditional nursery rhymes and classical music to modern music and original tunes.
Activities in our Tots for Tempo courses include guitar sing-a-longs, fingerplays, tickle songs, dancing and movement activities, singing, instrument exploration and group drumming, scarves, parachute play, and more. The goal is to use music play to introduce concepts such as fast/slow, loud/soft, high/low, and steady beat recognition through nurturing activities that will strengthen the bond between you and your little one.
What Are People Saying?
"My girls LOVE Tots with Tempo. They have grown up in this class; both started before they could walk. Now we sing the songs we've learned in class at home and they can't wait to go back every week!"
- Kat, parent
"My infant daughter and I both loved Katie's "mommy and me" music classes. Not only does Katie have a beautiful singing voice, but she truly has a warm and engaging presence with children. Her classes will have you humming and singing new songs to your child in no time."
