Parent and Me Music Classes

Parent and Me Music Classes

Kids Love Music enjoys the interactive learning and play between parents and children during each parent and me music class. You may recognize it as a mommy and me music class, but we include either parent (daddy and me music class), or even Grandma, Grandpa, or another loving adult! Kids Love Music offers 5-week long parent-participation music classes that are held at various cities’ parks and recreation centers throughout Orange County, and surrounding areas.

Children need and desire repetition.  Adults often prefer variety.  To accommodate both parent and child, Kids Love Music uses the same instruments and puppets for the duration of each 5-week long parent and me music class session.  With each new session the puppets, rhythm-band instruments, and song selections change.  Circle-time songs and Orff instruments change less frequently.
