Arts

1.) University of Louisville Community Music Program presents Suzuki Steps Music Classes for Babies and Toddlers

9 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. Jan. 4, Clifton Center, 2117 Payne St.

Free

These are demonstration music classes for babies age 0-3 and their parent. There is no charge. Using traditional nursery rhymes, action songs, lullabies and instruments, these classes seek to build on the child's natural delight in learning and lay the foundation for musical skills such as beat, rhythm, pitch and tone. Through parent/child interaction and class participation, students start to acquire attributes of trust, sharing, success, and communication.

Additional Information: To rsvp, e-mail: suzukistrings@louisville.edu or call 502-639-7272. Space is limited to 12 children/parents per class.
