Jungle Music Classes at Forte Toowong
Why is music so important to babies?
At this pre-linguistic stage your child’s hearing abilities develop in preparation for the job ahead of learning to talk. Now is the time to engage, enhance and simply play with sound – and there is no better way to do that than with music.
What you’ll notice…
As your baby becomes familiar with music, they will begin to predict the end of section changes. This means your baby is digesting the music; making sense of it for themselves. This is your baby beginning a life-long relationship with music.
What will my child experience as they become older?
Your child will be immersed in a musically rich environment where we will reinforce the fundamentals of music with movement, songs and instruments. Classes include:
- directed creative movement
- dances and;
- other circle activities aimed at developing musical understanding through doing.
The Jungle Music equipment has been carefully selected for each age group to offer a rich range of sensory development. The equipment includes:-
