Meeting Room

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

Space is limited: register in advance to reserve your spot and receive reminders. Registration will guarantee your seat until the event begins. Accessibility needs? Please contact ask@acpl.info as soon as possible - we’d love to help.
