At seven months of age, Marryn has already completed a semester of college. Well, in a manner of speaking…relatively…ok honestly she’s in a baby music class at TCU and it’s the cutest darn thing you’ve ever seen.
Back in January, on the recommendation of my friend, Jen Wright, I enrolled my three month old baby in a Music Together experiential class at TCU. It’s through the College of Continuing Education. “Really? A music class for babies?” I can hear the snarky comment coming, but it really has a made a difference in Marryn’s development, plus she has so much fun!
Each week of the class I have noticed (as have other mommy classmates) Marryn interacting more, reaching for instruments and trying to “play” them, and vocalizing in new and different ways. Am I trying to turn her into a musical virtuoso through these classes? Mostly definitely no. They are a great way for her to interact with other children and experience basic music skills. We drum, we sing, we dance, we chew on things.
