Review of Wee Rock Music Classes by Heidi Howe
The kids and I joined Stephanie and her munchkins along with some fellow momma friends this past week at a music class with Heidi Howe at Mama’s Hip. Wee Rock is a great drop-in music class for children under the age of 5. Heidi is energetic and relates to the out-going or shy kids (like mine). She keeps the class moving with different music and activities from singing and dancing to playing the drums or just sticks. We had a fairly large class, but we were still able to have lots of fun. Heidi has open music classes several times a week at Mama’s Hip and is expanding soon to other areas in Louisville. I highly recommend you check one of her classes out. You won’t be disappointed. And besides, the first class is free so what do you have to lose?
My kids were completely enthralled by Heidi and her program! My kids are very high energy and easily distracted…but not during this class. Heidi also plays the guitar during class and when she did so, all of the kids were completely focused on her in amazement. They just love instruments! Heidi’s high energy class is exactly what they needed to gain their attention and keep it. He classes flow and you can tell she is completely prepared, including a little bit of everything to appeal to everyone. Heidi makes eye contact with each child and that is really engaging. This is not the music class you would expect to attend with your child, in a good way! I was singing the Go Go’s with my kids, how fun is that!!?? Even the traditional nursery rhyme or children’s tune became a rap/chant. The kids were encouraged to dance, play little instruments (LOUDLY), clap and sing. It is a wonderful thing to hear the Heidi is expanding her business and potentially holding classes in the Middletown area. Soon enough, there will a class close to everyone so please try it out.
As mentioned above, the Wee Rock classes are drop in, but Heidi is adding a sign-up class at Mama’s Hip on Wednesday mornings at 11am! This class starts Oct. 6th and runs through Dec. 15th. It is $60 for 10 classes. You can get more details on her website.
We are also happy to announce that Heide is giving us a GREAT prize to give away!! We will be running a contest starting on Monday so check back on this blog to enter!
