Tambourine: Making a tambourine is easy! All you need are two paper plates, a hole punch, jingle bells and some string. First, staple or glue the plates together, facing each other. Using a hole punch, make holes around the edge of the plates and tie the bells to the holes with a string or ribbon. Have your little one decorate the tambourine with crayons, markers or colored pencils and voila! Your tambourine is complete. Just shake and enjoy!

It’s simply amazing that in this day and age there are new discoveries to be made in music! There are still new melodies being made and classical masterpieces being uncovered. We are big fans of Bach’s classical melodies (as you already know) so we were absolutely fascinated when just 5 years ago an unknown Aria (a solo vocal piece with instrumental accompaniment) was discovered. The excitement around the discovery has been simply astounding and just goes to show what a key part of our lives music really is. Want to read more about this discovery? Check out NPR. We believe that music is one of the greatest gifts that you can give to your baby so we wanted to share a few tips for bringing musical experiences to some everyday activities.

Remember the joy of banging on pots and pans or the squeak of grass when you blew on it as a kid? Today is World Music Day, so it’s time to make some noise! Making music is an awesome way to play with your baby (and kick start your own creativity by turning almost any household item into an instrument). Here are a few starters:
Shake It Like You Mean It Have an empty water bottle and some dried beans? Then you can have a maraca in under a minute. Put a handful of beans (you can use rice or small stones as an alternative) in a water bottle and secure the lid tightly so your mischievous lil’ one can get shaking. Introduce your little guy to rhythms by first showing him different shakes and then letting him rock out.
