In Early Childhood music classes at Diller-Quaile, young children develop cognitive and social skills through the joys of music. Classes are taught by professional musicians, who are also early childhood experts, focusing on the developmental milestones of your child as they grow. A professional pianist creates original music to accompany every class. Join us as we sing, move, listen, and build friendships!

Children three months to five years of age and their accompanying adults are invited to enjoy music through singing, movement, and exploring instruments.

Space is limited. Please contact Dorothy Appleton at 212-369-1484, ext. 43 or dappleton@diller-quaile.org with any questions.

 


Music Infants & Babies
3 months-16 months old

Infants/Babies and adults deepen their connection through joy-filled music experiences which help foster development through expressive singing, tapping, clapping, bouncing, and rocking. Group participation with small percussion instruments and props develops each infant’s motor skills and listening abilities, while promoting a love of music. Every class features a pianist who supports the learning process and improvises accompaniments in a variety of musical styles.


Meet the Instrument
6 months-5 years old

This class welcomes guest musicians who introduce instruments such as the violin, viola, cello, double bass, guitar, harp, flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, French horn, and percussion instruments. Hands-on experiences and opportunities to sing familiar songs with each instrument are a part of the curriculum, and children begin to develop an awareness of the distinctions among instrument families. Weekly music explorations focus on repertoire that highlights each instrument’s unique qualities, supported by group singing, movement activities and, when developmentally appropriate, an introduction to notation. Every class features a pianist who improvises accompaniments in a variety of musical styles and who joins the guest musicians in performing a wide selection of musical genres.
