Baby in Tune will help you feel more confident, joyful, and relaxed in your parenting. In this class you will develop your own repertoire with your baby, and learn how to use music to establish routine, soothe, play, and do "baby therapy”. It is also a place for you to bond with and feel supported by other group members, and to become more in touch with your own experience, emotions, and inner music. The classes use tools from music therapy and are grounded in psychology and attachment theory.
From Vered Ronan, Baby in Tune Founder: Baby in Tune classes are unlike any other baby classes. Not only will you learn musical tools to use with your baby, you will gain a deeper understanding of your baby's emotional world and will come out feeling like a better and more confident parent.
Red Tricycle says: “After each class, you are left with a greater appreciation of the power of music, armed with a few more tricks on how to be an awesome parent.”
