Music Classes for Kids and Families


Music By The Season is a nature-inspired educational group music program for young children and their families. The program was created in 2013 by Alison Notkin with the purpose of nurturing and enhancing young children's natural interest in music and nature in a warm and welcoming environment. During class we sing and learn the basics of rhythm, we move to music, and we experiment with a variety of percussion and melody instruments.  Using puppets and props we also discuss simple processes in nature with the goal of learning to appreciate nature and become environmental stewards. The music in class is a combination of Alison's original songs that teach about the seasons and processes in nature, lesser known folk songs and songs from the Rudolf Steiner community.  Go to the Classes page to find out about the offerings for Fall 2023.

"Music By The Season is a mix of many of my favourite things such as kids, singing and songwriting, guitar playing, nature, science, teaching about environmental stewardship, and being around wonderful communities of families and friends. I designed these classes to be fun and educational and to feel like an extension of home.  I hope you love them as much as I do."

Alison Notkin (Founder, 2013)
