Those Lazy Hazy Crazy Days of Music…I mean, Summer!
Summer sun, fresh air, and music outdoors…what more could you want?! After a year with minimal programming, Harmony Garden is gearing up for a busy summer -we are bringing you many opportunities this summer to get out of the house and make music with Jaime, Kara, and Erin (our new music therapist! Click here to learn more about her). We have something for everyone planned: infants, early childhood, adults with special needs, and events for the whole family! Check out some of our summer programming below:

Milestones through Music: Songs for Stimulation and Socialization
Ages: 9mos and under
Details: This class is focused on providing opportunities for infants to bond with caregivers and meet other infants while gradually being introduced to live music. Sounds outside the home are new, exciting, and sometimes overstimulating to babies so this music class is a great place to safely expose your baby to new sights and sounds. This class also provides opportunities to achieve other developmental milestones such as tracking, developing grasp, cause and effect, tummy time, and bonding. We support and guide parents and caregivers through using music as a tool for infant development.
For Early Childhood
Harmony Garden Sprouts
Ages: 3mos – 4 years
Indoor and Outdoor Options
Details: These group experiences immerse your child in singing and chanting, moving to music, playing assorted percussion instruments, and musical pattern exploration. This summer we are excited to have a combination of indoor and outdoor class options to fit your needs and wants!
For School Aged Children
Ages: 7-12 years
Details: Ukulele Class is an IN-PERSON inclusive music group for participants ages 7-12 of all ability levels. In this class, participants will learn how to play chords, read chord charts, tune their ukulele, and all the different parts of their instrument. Students will be expected to provide their own ukulele for this course. You may contact Kara at firstname.lastname@example.org for ukulele recommendations if needed.
For Adults with Special Needs
Monthly Drop-In Music Therapy
Details: Monthly drop-in music therapy is back and will be meeting outdoors for the summer! Drop-in is scheduled for the 2nd Wednesday of each month (May – September) and requires no RSVP, just bring yourself, $10/participant, and a blanket or chair to sit on!
