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 offered by our partners from the Fort Wayne Children's Choir.


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 form and expression, and movement with the beat.

This program is intended for children. Register for all programs on our Events page, on the ACPL mobile app, or by calling the branch. In an effort to be courteous to our presenters, audience members, and waitlisted registrants:

  • Register all attendees: children, adults and caregivers.
  • Please arrive prior to the program’s start time.  Registering for a program will not hold your seat after the program’s designated start time.
  • If you are unable to attend, please cancel your registration online or by calling the branch.
