(A.K.A. Singing and Pooping)
Proudly, by Peira Moinester
I’ve known Nate Shaw (my business partner here at BMF) for most of my adult life. Well, if you consider my playing music with babies and toddlers “adulting.” His girls were in my toddler music class way back when I first started teaching right out of college, and now one of them is in college herself. I know. I’m about to do that “can you believe how time passes” thing. But seriously, can you believe how time passes? I digress.
Why babies are the most uninhibited musicians
Truth is, I love working with those little ones. They are the freest version of musician that exists, the kind we are all trying to tap into as adults. Babies and toddlers live in a world where music is entirely about exploration and self-expression. And while, yeah, that lack of inhibition also translates to them publicly pooping their pants, it’s an awesome thing when it comes to music. Singing and pooping: new slogan?
Bringing it full circle
Anyway, I’m super psyched to bring this thing full circle by bringing back music classes for babies and toddlers, but this time with the BMF twist: songwriting with and for our little ones. Songs are an incredible way to help people who are so new to the world get through the day. Little Songwriters has developed a curriculum where kids not only get to sing, play, and dance, but also create songs with their grownups that are relevant to their lives.
You bring the baby, we’ll bring the fun.
Ultimately, It feels great not only to return to my own beginnings with Nate, but also to open the BMF doors to a community that we haven’t had the opportunity to make music with until now. Please join us. All you need to bring is the baby (and the poop). We’ll bring the fun.
