South Jersey Music Classes for Babies and Toddlers


First Notes Music Class: First Notes is the perfect introduction to music of babies and toddlers.  Music Classes are taught by a team of talented musicians who specialize in teaching children.

Kids’ MusicRound of Collingswood & Cherry Hill: A music and movement class for infants, toddlers and preschoolers that includes activities designed to promote musical learning across ages. In our signature mixed-age class, infants, toddlers, and preschoolers along with their parents or caregivers join together as a musical community. Activities include playing rhythm instruments, having fun with finger plays, and singing and dancing to music of different meters and tonalities. A mixed-age setting allows children the freedom to develop basic skills like singing in tune and keeping an accurate beat at their own pace. Since there is no set age for these skills to be acquired, these classes provide a non-performance opportunity for musical exploration that the whole family can enjoy.

  • When? They have 3 classes throughout the week to choose from, Mondays at 9am or 10am and Thursdays at 4:30pm in Collingswood. The classes in Cherry Hill are Wednesdays at 9:30am and 10:30am and Thursdays at 9:30am 
  • Where? Held at the Village in Collingswood, they also have classes in Cherry Hill at Congregation Beth El

Perkins Center for the Arts Mini Musicians Class (Burlington and Camden County Offerings): Join us for an interactive music and movement class for young children and their caregivers. Our nationally recognized curriculum, based on the approaches by Edwin E. Gordon and Dr. John Feierabend, develops the musical potential of the very young child and guides caregivers in recognizing and nurturing their musical inclinations.

Our Mini Musicians teachers foster a hands-on approach to exploring young children’s innate sense for chanting, singing and movement as their first steps in musical development. This approach encourages children in discovering the body as the first primary instrument and empowers their caregivers to carry on music making at home. Over the next 10 weeks, we aim to grow “tuneful, beatful, and artful” families.

  • Thoughts: I attended a free demo of this program at the library, not the full class. I thought it was a nice class overall and I enjoyed how they taught some things to parents along the way. I wouldn't say it was particularly designed for 0-2 year olds.
