BabySTEPs is a Suzuki Early Childhood Education music class for children ages newborn through three and their parents.
No prior music experience is required
Suzuki Early Childhood Education classes use a constant curriculum of songs and nursery rhymes to allow each child to progress at his or her own pace in a nurturing environment. Children learn songs through repetition and frequent home listening, just as they will in instrumental lessons. By the end of the three-year course, children have mastered the material and are ready begin studying an instrument with a STEP faculty member. You will be amazed at what your child can do!
Baby + Music
“Babies have a natural responsiveness to music that is pleasurable for them. Singing and listening to music are ways to develop this bond with your child.”
- Dr. Leon Thurman & Anna Peter Langness, Heartsongs.

PARENTS, it's about you, too!
Parents actively take part in class with their child by singing along, participating in activities, and giving loving encouragement. Parents and children also enjoy listening to the class CD together at home.
No Babies too Young... well, almost
You can start bringing your baby to class as early as three weeks. A growing body of research is discovering that babies are constantly learning from their environment, even if that learning is not visible. In class, your baby will enjoy the music and react with pleasure to the sounds of instruments.
Have a lively toddler? Your little bundle of energy will love the quick pace of this class and the many opportunities for movement!
