Class activities bring the joy of music and movement to babies and their caregivers, and include bouncing and patting games, rocking and singing activities, dancing, and playing simple instruments such as drums, shakers, and more.  Folk and classical music are used to create an aural environment which develops pitch, rhythm, and musical awareness.  Moms, dads, and other caregivers will enjoy experiencing the sensory rich and nurturing environment with their babies.  Activities are developmentally appropriate and are based on current research about brain and cognitive development, and promote bonding and fun with your baby.  

"UCCMA is already making a difference in my infant's life.  He already loves music and recognizes music around him." 

"I love taking them each week and it is so fun to come home and see how much they've learned, even if they don't show it in class or show it when they were younger (babies). Putting my kids in UCCMA is the best thing I have ever done for their growth and development. I love the teachers and the programs and would highly recommend it to anyone considering."

Beginning Music is designed to bring the joy of music and movement to toddlers and their parents/caregivers.  Activities include bouncing, finger plays, rocking, movement and singing activities, dancing, and playing simple instruments such as rhythm sticks, shakers, drums, tone bars, and jingles.  We play simple musical games and introduce simple folk dances.  Focused listening and creative movement encourage musical exploration.  Folk and classical music are used to create an aural environment which develops pitch, rhythm, and musical awareness. Activities are developmentally appropriate and are based on current research about brain and cognitive development, and promote bonding and fun with your toddler.  

"The growth and development my children have shown through union colony's music classes have exceeded my expectations. The songs and activities help with so much more than music. My children have learned practical things that help me teach and parent, for instance washing hands, brushing teeth, following instructions, stopping something they are doing, cleaning up, transitioning to new tasks, playing with others, exploring, and creative play are just a few to name. I love taking them each week and it is so fun to come home and see how much they've learned, even if they don't show it in class or show it when they were younger (babies). Putting my kids in UCCMA is the best thing I have ever done for their growth and development. I love the teachers and the programs and would highly recommend it to anyone considering."

Family Music is a class designed for the entire family. Music education is emphasized with activities including singing, focused listening, playing simple instruments, as well as creative and purposeful movement. We play simple music games and learn simple circle and fold dances, and explore a wide variety of instruments and sounds. Children enjoy being with children of various ages, and parents learn how to modify activities in developmentally appropriate ways for the unique age characteristics of each child.  

"My daughter has attended UCCMA since she was about 1 year old. She looks forward to her music class every week. We are at the point where she knows what day of the week it is based on if she has music that day or not. Her rhythm and social skills have developed immensely since starting the class. We couldn't ask for anything more. "

"Union Colony Children's Music Academy has made a huge impact on not only my kids, but on our entire family.  We use the ditties, songs, and rhythm games in our lives daily!  We can make the daily chores fun and exciting by tapping, clapping or singing about it.  Your teaching staff is awesome...we really feel loved :)  Thank you for your commitment to my little ones..."
