Rattle Box music classes are where it all begins at Music Box Oxford! They are for babies from a few months old to toddlers rising 3. We sing, we play, we explore instruments, we move, we bounce monkeys on lycra, turn scarves into butterflies and much more.
Music is something almost miraculous for babies and toddlers. It stimulates and engages, and yet has the ability to calm and regulate emotions. It helps fosters the positive relationship between child and adult. You have fun together, you sing & play, explore emotions & sounds. It is creative, it feeds the imagination and encourages us to be expressive. It gives us language & numbers & introduces us to the world around us.
We learn to be sociable, to be part of a group, to share & to take out turn: what great life skills!
Children love moving to music; it's a great release of energy, helps physical development and co-ordination and is just great fun!
And while you're moving, you develop a fundamental sense of beat and rhythm.
We know that music helps us concentrate, it builds our memory, it helps us be patient and to persevere. And yet it also soothes us and helps us relax. As I said at the start, almost miraculous..!
