Introducing: "Harmonic Sprouts," A Parent-Child Bonding Program
Updated: Mar 30, 2021
After a year of pandemic-related stress, parents are exhausted. Finding resources and social opportunities for young children is much more difficult right now! Time with your growing child is precious, and a positive experience together makes the world seem less difficult in a difficult time. Harmonic Changes is excited to bring you a new program that will hopefully alleviate some of that stress.
We have created “Harmonic Sprouts”, a weekly event where you and your child can spend positive time together making music and learning about how music can support your child’s development.
This program is specifically designed for parents and children ages 0-3 - one of the most exciting and quickly changing periods of development!
As your child grows, the program will focus on these different aspects of development:
Your Baby’s Brain (Cognition & Sensory Regulation): Music contains repetitive patterns that are both comforting and help your child learn to recognize them. Music stimulates memory, observation of differences, and symbolic thinking! The stimulation that music provides supports auditory and brain development for infants and toddlers.
Singing With Your Child! (Communication): Singing allows your child to learn important elements of expressive and receptive language. Your child prefers to hear your voice above all others! Infant-directed singing increases your connection as well as emphasizing parts of language like prosody to help them understand you better.
Food Is Fun! (Eating & Playtime): Especially for young infants, eating and playtime are two of the main activities filling their time awake. Music can support the routine of eating as your child grows, and musical play will be fun for the whole family!
Exploring Their World (Movement): Moving to music can support gross and fine motor development. Whether it is bouncing up and down, moving arms, clapping hands, or holding small instruments, the rhythm and the beat make moving fun and more organized!
If You’re Happy And You Know It (Social & Emotional Connections): Music can help your child understand and express emotions, connect to others in the world around them, and learn about different cultures and people! Sharing and turn-taking are natural parts of music, and the soothing nature of music can help you and your child become calm and relaxed.
We want this program to be as accessible as possible, so we are offering it for FREE via telehealth!
This Program will start
Mondays at 9:30am PST and 11:30 CT
