Happy Little Singers Sessions are held EVERY Tuesday at 9:45 am at The Hannah Block/Community Arts Center, 201 S 2nd Street (corner of Orange and Second Street, downtown Wilmington). Please call or text 910-777-8889 if you are a first time attendee (just to make sure the session will be held that week).
Happy Little Singers is an affordable, creative early childhood (Pre-K) music and movement program, designed for infants, toddlers, pre-schoolers and young students up to age 6 (older children and siblings enjoy the program, as well!). The program easily compares to some of the most popular music programs available around the world.
With every nurturing and creative class, you will see your child expressing themselves in new ways, developing new skills and competency, matching rhythm and singing, playing instruments. You may also notice a significant increase in both fine and gross motor skills, eye-hand coordination, language and listening skills, social skills and self-esteem; and the class will reinforce the bond between you and your child. Best of all, you and your child be having SO MUCH FUN.
The parent, grandparent or caregiver attends and participates (i.e. ENJOYS THE FUN!!) with their child or children. (Siblings and complete families are welcome to attend in the same class with one another.)
Happy Little Singers
- The program is led by a seasoned, professional musician and teacher who is energetic, patient, compassionate, fun-loving and respectful of every child's individuality. The classes are full of activities designed to meet your child at his or her stage of development. While the classes offer a definite flow and repetition for the learning benefit of your children, parts of the sessions are less structured than most other popular courses, to enable each child to explore creativity and expression with boundless activity.
- The program incorporates a wide range music -- a variety of tempos, tonalities, modalities and genres -- a combination of music, adding in favorite public domain children's songs, poems and chants, and other familiar and modern music conducive to singing, dancing and instrument play.
- Each session meets once weekly for at least 1 1/2 hours, allowing for flexibility in the time when the kids are really engaged and focused in an activity.
Drop in program. No weekly commitment required and don't worry if you are running late. Also, come and go during each session as needed.
