Become tuneful, artful, and beatful babies and toddlers! Play and sing together, helping your child to build singing, vocabulary and movement skills while exploring the expressive qualities in music.

The goal of First Steps in Music is to enable all participants to reach their full potential in singing, vocabulary, and movement skills, with an emphasis on developing sensitivity to the expressive qualities in music. Each class is designed to be playful and enjoyable to children, while providing a carefully planned curriculum that includes developmentally appropriate activities. Children are not taught formally about the specifics of music, but rather they play with music through a series of eight well-rounded activities based on the First Steps in Music curriculum. The Fort Wayne Children's Choir offers First Steps in Music. The classes are generously funded by the PNC Bank Foundation and Three Rivers Credit Union Foundation.

Through the 8 basic activities included in classes based on the First Steps in Music curriculum, children and their parents/caregiver experience singing, creative movement, simple instruments, finger-plays and more with the help of the rich collection of traditional songs and rhymes from past generations. Example activities for First Steps in Music include: pitch exploration, song fragments, simple songs, arioso, child-centered tunes, song tales, movement exploration, movement for from and expression, movement with the beat.

Space may be limited, so please register for all programs online, on the ACPL mobile app, or by calling any library location. Please sign up everyone who will attend including adults.
