Descriptions of Hug Melody® and Hug Melody® Kids

Hug Melody® (6 months to 4 years old)
At Hug Music, we believe in the importance of exposing young ears to quality music and instruments in a fun and nurturing environment. Our highly rated signature class, Hug Melody® is designed and led by two music instructors who are also board music therapists and professional musicians.
  • The class is led with high-quality live music throughout the class with acoustic instruments. We emphasize the importance of giving children access to live and acoustic music because nowadays we are exposed to “computer-made” music all the time, and this is also true for our children. Exposing children to high-quality acoustic music from a young age is extremely important to promote healthy development of their ears.

  • The class uses exclusively original compositions that are carefully designed to evoke children’s positive responses. The songs used in the class celebrate diversity by featuring various genres, feels, moods, harmonies and rhythms rom all over the world.

  • We respect each child’s unique responses and celebrate them with ongoing live music to facilitate expansion of creativity and broaden artistry. All children are unique and so are their musical responses. Some respond quickly while others may respond slower. Some respond actively while others prefer to be listeners. While recorded music tends to indicate to children what are “correct” responses, using live music can make all responses unique. Furthermore, children often make spontaneous musical responses, which we value the most. Our teachers customize live music in the moment based on each child’s unique responses.

  • Classes are focused on improving both musical skills and healthy development, using an enjoyable and success-oriented approach.

Hug Melody® Kids is a continuation and more advanced class of Hug Melody® class that also provides basic music theory and solfege through games and fun music activities so that students will be prepared for music lessons. The class is designed and led by Ms. Kana & Mr.Sasha who are directors and founders of Hug Music who are also board music therapist and professional musicians. The class is interactive in a smaller group setting (up to 10 students per group), and it uses exclusively original compositions that are carefully designed to evoke children's positive responses.

Class provides 1) various fun music activities to promote improving pre-academic skills, 2) basic music theory through fun games, 3) solfege singing, and 4) ear training. Students can potentially learn to sing familiar songs with solfege and play on the instruments such as resonator bells.
