tuneBugz! Free Demo Week

Sponsored By :: tuneBugz

 

I never thought I would get so excited to sing a song with the lyrics “roll that little ball round the room.” Two years ago, it would have been a song that made my eyes roll. We love music in our house but the lyrics tend to be more along the lines of “ball so hard.”

When my daughter was born, I was in search of an activity we could do together that would allow her to interact with other babies and me to interact with other moms. My husband is a musician and music is always at the forefront in our home. When I came across tuneBugz!, it seemed like the perfect activity for us to partake in. 

I never could have imagined how important tuneBugz! would become. When my daughter was six months old, it was something to look forward to each week–something that got us out of the house each Wednesday. Those Wednesdays soon turned to milestones in her development. It was a way to interact with my daughter and to experience the joy of her interacting with other kids. As she grew, I saw her experience the songs we sang in different ways, from smiling to clapping, and now, at two, to singing. It was during tuneBugz! that my daughter took her first steps to retrieve an instrument during free play and she still darts towards the instruments when the teacher dumps them in the center of the room each class.

The Music Together program encourages parent bonding, child development, and social engagement. It has fostered our child’s love of music and we have grown to love the Music Together albums as a family. Sometimes I think we enjoy the songs more than our daughter as I watch my husband skip around the house with her on his shoulders singing “see the pony galloping galloping gently down the lane.”

Our two year old has grown up in tuneBugz! and we have watched her classmates grow up by her side. tuneBugz! offers classes for ages 0-7 including a babies only class and classes for older kids. Classes are offered on both weekdays and weekends in South and Central Austin, Round Rock, Leander, and Dripping Springs. Join the tuneBugz! Austin community with a free demo class this fall. Sign up here! We’ll see you up on your dancing feet.

tuneBugz! Information


tuneBugz! offers the very best experience in early childhood music education from birth through 2nd grade. It’s no secret that Austin knows their music – and tuneBugz! offers the research based program that Austinites LOVE – the Music Together
® program!   tuneBugz! provides developmentally appropriate exploration of music and movement with registered, experienced and engaging teachers. Unlocking a child’s musical gifts is EASY for parents and caregivers in this program because tuneBugz! provides a musically rich, accessible environment for early learners packed with lots of exciting instruments & movement props. Children are also afforded the freedom to choose their participation level so no need to worry about those wiggly new crawlers or walkers who love to explore the room.

The Music Together program was created in 1987 and introduced to the public at the Center for Music and Young Children in Princeton, NJ.

Music Together’s early childhood music education program recognizes that:

  • All children are musical.
  • All children can achieve basic music competence (defined as the ability to sing in tune with accurate rhythm).
  • The participation and modeling of parents and other primary caregivers, regardless of their musical ability, is essential to a child’s musical growth.
  • Young children’s musical growth occurs best in a playful, musically rich, and developmentally appropriate setting, free of formal instruction and performance pressure, where learning activities are accessible, interesting, and fun for both children and adults.
