There are many advantages to signing up for our Bop Along Baby music classes (now in Fitzroy and Greensborough). Learning music builds a child's confidence by enabling them to grow and experience small successes along the way. Music encourages self-expression and creativity, bringing joy into their lives that stays with them. On top of that, singing or playing an instrument can also have some significant social pay-offs!
Fun baby, toddler & pre school music classes in Fitzroy and Greensborough
Encourage your child's inner musical talent!
The bop along sessions
The Bop Along Baby program is set up in four stages. The baby music sessions focus on music familiarisation as a way to enhance language development, cognitive skills focusing on memory and perception. Musical contrasts such as “high and low”, “soft and loud” and “stop and start” are repeated over and over in many creative ways using games, rhythm and melody.
Walking bubs maintain the cognitive journey however, their new found independence as new walkers means our greater focus is on motor skills. We use movement. props and all sorts of fun games to enhance co-ordination through music.
Toddlers maintain the skills from previous age groups. We gradually introduce aural and rhythm perception into our repertoire. Concepts such as call and response and tapping rhythms are encouraged. Participation enhances confidence.
Pre-schoolers take aural and rhythmn awareness to the next level. This level consists of clapping and reading rhythms, singing and reading solfa signs and lots of music related games. By the tme they are ready for school our pre-school boppers should have a nice set of skills to prepare them for school and inspire them to be passionate and participate.
Musical awareness from an early age assists in providing children with the fundamental learning foundations for the rest of their lives.
After attending our mums & bubs baby music classes, your child will benefit in many ways, almost instantly!

“I recently engaged the services of Bop-Along-Baby to quite an unusual event: my 40th birthday party.
I hosted a family-orientated party on a Saturday afternoon and thought it’d be great to get an entertainer in to keep the babies and toddlers occupied for an hour or so.
Bop-Along-Baby did a terrific show and exceeded my expectations; lots of old fashioned songs, some new ones the kids learnt, as well as percussion and jumping around. Every parent commented on how fantastic the show was. It’s not easy keeping one child engaged for more than 10 minutes, but Bop-Along-Baby managed to keep a dozen or more kids happy for nearly a whole hour dancing and singing without them so much as wandering off. Well done.
On my day it gave the parents a bit of breathing space too to enjoy my party and relax and most of all have a laugh.”
