Silver Lake College’s Music for Tots Program Now Enrolling

January 12, 2010

The Silver Lake College Music for Tots™ program, completing its 25th year of sharing the gift of music with children from infancy through age five, is now enrolling for its spring classes. 

 Classes are held in 4 locations throughout Northeast Wisconsin:

Manitowoc – Beginning February 15

Sheboygan – Beginning January 26

Green Bay – Beginning February 15

Salem – Beginning February 15

The classes are held for 10 consecutive weeks and approximately 35 classes are currently being scheduled for the spring semester among the four sites. 

Music for Tots™ classes are educationally significant experiences for children from infancy through age five.  Careful scheduling allows varying types of structured musical activities to be planned for each class, according to the developmental level of the children.  Singing is the foundation of the curriculum, and simple children’s singing-games and folk songs are the appropriate tunes used in music making. 

Each class is limited to eight children with an age span of approximately one year, except for the older threes, fours and fives who participate together.  Parents participate with their child in sessions for infants and toddlers.  In the transition age of three years, the children become more independent, and among the three-to-five year olds, the pre-schoolers participate in songs, rhythm games, use of simple rhythm and tonal instruments, and movement activities independently, with parents present but not actively involved.

Parents who are interested in enrolling their infant, toddler, or pre-school child should call the Silver Lake College Department of Music at 920-686-6173 or email (  Include your name, phone number, child’s name and date of birth.  If classes for your child’s age are already filled for the spring session, your child’s name will be placed on a waiting list for classes that begin in the fall.  A registration fee only, no materials fee, is charged.
