Baby & Toddler Rockits has been enjoyed by Tenterden's little folk for three years now and is led by Rockits leader, Beth Wilson. Beth lives in Tenterden and is an experienced piano and singing teacher.
Beth says, "When I had my first baby a few years ago, I found there were no classes to take my baby to. So, I started Baby Rockits, a friendly group, where little ones get their first taste of music, movement and sensory fun. It was so successful that I have added a second group - Toddler Rockits, in Tenterden.
I feel very passionate about the benefits music can bring to us all, but especially to the young. I believe that music and movement helps children in so many ways, to gain confidence and improve their vocabulary and social skills. I have based the termly syllabus on the musical alphabet, Solfége (Do Re Mi's), with it's simple hand signs. This is taught to the children with fun, original songs and stories.
The science bit : Did you know that babies are born with perfect pitch? This amazing talent is often lost during their early years if they do not continue along a musical path."
Baby & Toddler Rockits is a unique little group and class sizes are small as Beth teaches at all sessions.
Fees for Baby and Toddler Rockits are set at just £5 a session, to ensure they are affordable to all.
Baby & Toddler Rockits is held at A Spoonful of Sugar, The Latte Lounge, 2 Coombe Lane, Tenterden.
Taster sessions will be starting in June. Come along, meet some new friends and start your little ones on a fun, musical journey
