Listen to the Water

Today we focused on some animal themed songs as I am beginning to teach them some new material. Teaching new songs can be a challenge but "Little Green Frog" was a big hit with both the moms and babies! I demonstrated the Ocean Drum and we sang "Listen to the Water" while we passed it around. Everyone was mesmerized by the wave sounds that we all created and it calmed everyone right down. It was fun watching the moms and children all staring up at the bottom of the drum watching the tiny ball bearings run from one side of the drum to the other as they shifted the drum from side to side. This was the most focused and quiet I have ever seen the class! We are in our last music class of the winter term. Today we had 6 babies and 7 moms (1 prenatal mom). I am happy to see a lot of familiar faces returning each week.
