Review of Music Together Kenilworth
Music Classes for Babies & Toddlers in Kenilworth, Warwickshire
By Hayley Sweeney, Local Mum
first started in April of this year (2011). It is a class that is run for 0-5 year olds to help them understand music and to have fun at the same time.
Marco and Helena who run Music Together are an upbeat and friendly team who work well together. Both the parents and children seem to respond well to them. They are both full of energy which instantly rubs off on both you and your children.
On arriving at Music Together
the atmosphere automatically made me feel comfortable and my daughter seemed relaxed. We were all given name tags and the first activity that we took part in was to sit in a circle on the floor and sing “Hello” to everyone in the group. This was a nice ice breaker.
We went on to sing Incy Wincy Spider and then sang it again adding sound effects - we even sang it in our heads silently while just doing the movements and then the sound effects! This was so the children could learn the song in their heads. We slapped our hands on our knees to the beat of songs that we weren’t familiar with, these songs are all available in a book that is given to you when you join so you can learn them at home.
When you’re not running or skipping round the room in a circle you can hear Marco playing the guitar, recorder or beating the drum and encouraging the kids to join in. They have many instruments that the children can choose to shake or beat. Before singing “Goodbye” to everyone at the end of the 45 minutes we even had the pleasure of hearing some “Green Sleeves”.
Music Together is an enjoyable and educational activity for kids to take part in and I will definitely be going again. The only problem that I encountered was that my daughter did not want to leave.
