First Steps (Ages 0-3)

FIRST STEPS IN MUSIC 

Classes meet Thursdays at 10:30am at the Shawnee Library and Fridays at 10:30am and 11:00am at the Aboite Library through October 26, 2018.

The Fort Wayne Children’s Choir offers First Steps in Music classes to children ages 0 to 3 years old in coordination with the Allen County Public Library.  Through activities based on the First Steps in Music curriculum by John Feierabend, children and their parents/caregiver experience singing, creative movement, simple instruments, finger-plays and more with the help of the rich collection of traditional songs and rhymes from past generations.

The goal of First Steps in Music is to enable all participants to reach their full potential in singing, vocabulary, and movement skills, with an emphasis on developing sensitivity to the expressive qualities in music. Each class is  designed to be playful and enjoyable to children, while providing a carefully planned curriculum that includes developmentally appropriate activities. Children are not taught formally about the specifics of music, but rather they play with music through a series of eight well-rounded activities based on the First Steps in Music curriculum.
