Storysongs, Meaningful Music, and Movement

Read what parents have to say about Kids at Work!
Jam Sessions - Babies
8 weeks -12 months

In these classes, designed for the youngest
music-makers and the people who love them,
parents/caregivers will be introduced to fun and
interesting musical activities designed to
awaken musicality in the babies as well as the
adults in class.  You may find that not all babies
music classes are created equal, and the
individual teacher is the most important aspect
to finding a meaningful experience.  Jam
Sessions Babies is taught by Kids at Work
Founder
Julie Averill, who has over 10 years of
experience working with infants and families,
along with a separate professional guitarist.  
Grown-ups will be encouraged to fully participate
in a low-stress, relaxed atmosphere based on
improvisation where mistakes and questions are
welcome!  Come to a Jam Session and meet
other moms and dads of young babies!

Jam Sessions - Toddlers
11 months - 2.5 years    
(non-walkers welcome)

Jam Sessions Toddlers contains songs that are
built around interesting, age-appropriate
storytelling and dramatic movement.  We believe
that very young children are capable of being
engaged in musical activities that are
sometimes quiet, always intimate, and never
over-stimulating.   Children (and adults) will
become birds, big fat bears, and trees, while
experiencing music that is often improvised and
certainly not typical of children's music classes.  
Simple musical concepts such as high-low,
major-minor, fast-slow, and singing
voice/speaking voice will be explored in an open-
ended and informal manner.  Child-friendly
instruments will be explored in each session,
inspiring creative play in a socially relaxed
manner.  Jam Sessions always includes a live
guitarist.  Check out Jam Sessions, where live
music is never amplified and our teachers
always know your and your child's name.

Jam Sessions with Ian!  
2 - 3 years

Ian Turner has been working with young children
and babies in music classroom settings for over
3 years.  Children in Ian's class will engage in
pretend/dramatic play within a musical context,
under Ian's direction, based on seasonal and
thematic elements.  Ian's extensive training in
improvisation, theater, movement, and music, as
well as his early childhood training at KAW, will
inspire children to develop and express their
ideas in a stress-free and age-appropriate
context.  This class is designed to promote all
kinds of early childhood skills including turn
taking, working together as a team, verbal
expression, decision making, and of course
being super duper musical!  Of course, Ian's
guitar will be on hand as well as Kids at Work's
extensive instrument collection, including a real
drum kit, rainstick, and large bongo drums.  Join
Ian's legion of fans at Jam Sessions at Kids at
Work!
