Introduce your child to the wide and wonderful world of music through MIM’s early childhood music and movement courses. Explore music from around the globe with your children while singing, dancing, and playing instruments. Designed for children and caregivers, each four-week session explores a new musical culture in engaging ways. Motor, pre-language, and musical skills are developed simultaneously, while children actively participate in the music making.
This session focuses on Africa.
Each class is structured around developmentally appropriate activities for the children to interact with and create their own music. By exploring music through song, dance, and basic instruments, children develop musical and social skills. Early childhood music programs are also proven to foster physical, emotional, and cognitive growth.
Masks are recommended, but not required, for all MIMkids classes. MIM’s ventilation system exceeds CDC recommendations for air filtering capabilities and includes a prefilter system.
If you have friends or family that would love Mini Music Makers, send a MIM gift card for classes their way.
For questions, please email programs@MIM.org.
Reservations are required; first come, first served. Due to space limitations, only one child and one adult per ticket will be allowed to participate. Please register for the session that is age-appropriate for your child. However, MIM understands that younger or older siblings may need to attend class with a brother or sister. Thus, Mini Music Makers encourages participation of all children in the class, even those outside the age group. Because space and resources are limited, we ask that you register siblings whose ages fall within one year of the suggested age range.
In the event of sickness or extenuating circumstances, please contact programs@MIM.org before your scheduled Mini Music Makers class time. You will be rescheduled into a future class at no additional cost. Absence notices received after the purchased class time will not qualify for rescheduling.
