About Toddle Tunes
Toddle Tunes® is a childhood development program that utilizes live music – the most stimulating tool that science knows of, to help your baby’s neurotransmitters connect from the brain to the hands, feet, fingers, toes and so on!
Through scientific study, we now know that between the time your baby is born, through 2 yrs old - is the most crucial development period of your child's mental, social and motor function skills. We've always known that playing live music is highly effective in this regard as we see the results everyday but now the scientific community has confirmed this.
In her ground breaking child development book (Bright From the Start 2008) Dr. Jill Stamm, co-founder of the New Directions Institute for Infant Brain Development writes that infant music training activates the attention system, leading to enhanced learning ability in reading and math as well as social and reasoning skills. Dr. Stamm also notes that the Mozart effect (the recently debunked notion that simply listening to classical music on recorded media can enhance a child's brain function)- just isn't enough. Hands- on music making is key!
These benefits also apply to children with autism, mental and physical challenges, who have been guided to Toddle Tunes® by their physicians for the focus and relief of anxiety that making music provides.
Finally… music making is fun! :) A child having fun equates to an open and engaged mind. That turns into to learning. After all how do we learn most things growing up? By singing or a song like our ABC's and so many other rhymes that we memorize as tools of learning even in our later school years.
Toddle Tunes® has mastered the baby music class experience making this a wonderful, warm and stimulating time for you and your child. All of which offers a stress relieving experience for the parents as well.
The owners and staff are educated in music and experienced with babies. Matthew Mueller, the musical director and co-owner has his degree from Oberlin Conservatory and all staff has their degrees from various colleges as well. We are all multi-instrumental and encourage that forward. We literally love and live music every day. This makes a huge difference if you’re out there comparing programs. We change our curriculum each week – and do not repeat these curricula for 6 months. This keeps things fresh and new for our little students and makes it even more fun for everyone. We cover every genre and have almost every instrument you can imagine. These instruments are waiting for your baby to come and play them. We offer a free trial – which is the same as a regular class so that you can test the waters before you commit. We have a strict sickness policy but a flexible make up policy. What more could you possibly ask for?
Toddle Tunes® is THE most unique childhood learning resource in Los Angeles and in fact, won "Best of LA" in 2008 from Los Angeles Magazine. A family based business; we look forward to meeting you, your baby and your family.
Come and share the joy of music and learning at Toddle Tunes®. LA’s #1 Kids’ Music Class!
