Muziek op schoot:
“Music on your lap” for parent and child

“Music on your lap” is a combination of activities – singing new songs and well known songs with your child, making music with small instruments like rattles and sticks and dancing with scarves and balls.

You will receive copies of the songs that we sing during the lessons to take home, so you can practice the songs at home. If you don't speak or understand the dutch language, then this is a nice way to learn it.

You do not need to have any dance experience or be musical to participate - Taking part and being active during a lesson is most important.

Every child is unique and learns in their own way; some children will initially just want to watch, while others will immediately want to move.

I am originally trained as a schoolteacher and as a dance-teacher. Recently I received my teaching diploma for “Music on your lap”.
