Emilio has always loved music, he would listen in utero with headphones on my belly while I played various composers that would vibrate my stomach with different tunes and melodies. I brought him along to his older brother’s music classes as an infant and would hold him on my lap; I could tell he was enthralled with what he was hearing. When he was a toddler, I made sure to always have instruments around that he could bang on or strum, his favorite was a dulcimer that a family friend sent him.
Now that he is 3.5 years old, I knew he was ready for his own music class and was thrilled when I learned there was a Vivaldi Music Academy just up the street from us. I enrolled him in their Seasons class, he started with their Autumn class for 3 and 4 year olds. In the 4 short weeks that he has been going, he has loved his teacher Caitlin and I have been so impressed when she invites the parents to come in to the class to demonstrate that day’s lesson. The latest lesson was on learning the musical notes, and I observed Emilio singing has he was reading sheet music with pictures he called “T T and Ta Ta”.
In the short amount of time that he has been going I can see that his musical ability has improved, he sings along to songs in the car and can harmonize with songs that I am singing. We are looking forward to what the next couple of months of the class has in store for him.
