Why Ladybug Music ®?

These days everything is moving fast, but one thing has remained the same – how your child’s brain develops – it still takes time and can’t be rushed! A one-time experience is not enough for neural connections to form and stabilize and at Ladybug Music we understand and believe in the power of repetition and routine.

Our fun program not only nurtures your child’s basic music skills but it’s also designed for optimal early childhood development. Weaved into Ladybug Music’s multi-sensory curriculum are activities developed specifically for building and strengthening:

  • Body & Brain Connections
  • Fine & Gross Motor Skills
  • Social-Emotional understanding
  • Language & Reasoning Skills

In class we…

  • Learn to keep time with drums, shakers, and sticks
  • Improve fine motor skills with small movement songs
  • Increase body-awareness with fun dances
  • Sing songs that teach us new words
  • PLUS fun instrument jams, parachutes, bungees, scarves and more!

***EXCITING NEWS: We are offering in-person classes AND online classes this Winter. Class locations and space will be very limited. Class sizes will be at 50% occupancy. If you are not comfortable coming to a class in-person, we are keeping our at-home classes rockin’ with Zoom. 

IN-PERSON CLASSES: Safety is our top priority, so class days and class sizes are limited. We are following MDH and CDC guidelines, so adults will need to wear mask/shields, but children will not. In-person classes will be held at Maple Grove (Genesis Dance). Classes will have a maximum of 6 families will have a taped out area to sit in.  Each family will have their own bundle of instruments to be used only by them during the duration of class session. Enrollment will include a CD, Digital Downloads, and an instrument bundle (egg shakers (2), Rhythm Sticks (2 pairs), and Scarves (2) for only $97.50 for a 5-Week In-Person Session. Melissa is traveling in March, so that is why this session is shortened to 5-weeks.  Teacher’s will be wearing face shields and adults will need to wear masks. Class will look a little different than last year, but we’ll have just as much fun singing, dancing, and learning!!

AT-HOME CLASSES: We’ll keep rockin’ with you at home with our live classes via ZOOM. Registration will include a CD and an instrument bundle for kids at home too! Tuition will be a bit different as it is a 10-Week Session$65/month ($195 total) for the entire family. At-home classes will be 9:30AM on Weds, Thurs, Fri, and Saturday :) 

10-WEEK SESSION DATES:

Benefits of an Interactive
Online Class

My son and I LOVE! Ladybug Music! Having an online option has been a huge blessing for our family and friends – giving us the ability to connect in new ways! Not only that, but having an outlet to learn, grow, and play has been something we have been craving since the world shut down! Thank you for everything you do, and I hope you continue to offer online classes even when restrictions lift!

Hello families!

Since we can’t physically BE in class, let’s embrace music class at HOME! We will be offering a 4-week mini session at home! Classes will last 30 minutes and will included recorded music activities you can do at home. Both Julie and I are home with our kids, so we hope to *try* the live features too! Session will include digital downloads of exclusive Ladybug Music songs.  We’ve collected some favorites from our various CDs and we look forward to having a blast singing, dancing, and playing instruments (virtually) with you!

The session fee will be $40/per family and will include digital downloads of songs and include access into our classroom  with Julie or Melissa. If you were registered in our 10-Week Winter Session, this mini session is at no cost to you.  We are keeping the classes titled as, “Monday @ 9:30, Monday @ 4:30, Tuesday.., etc” to move our Winter Session families into those class. That way we can continue with our classes’ awesome energy and keep building our Ladybug Family that is comprised of the some of the coolest moms, dads, grandmas, grandpas, nannies, friends and family in Minnesota . So, if you are sleeping in, staying up late, and rockin’ your PJs all day, don’t worry, classes may be viewed at anytime of day.

Repetition increases engagement and brain activity. When children are familiar with a song, they are more engaged because they are confident and know what to expect.

“Seriously, music is so amazing, and what’s even more amazing is how music interacts with the brain!”

– Cacia King, Author at Listen & Learn Music
