Never fear, Triangle Mamas is still a place for mamas to come and share their stories. It's not just a place to let you know what to do and what's going on in the Triangle. I mean, we'll do some of that too, but I am not a reviewer. I just don't have the patience. Some of our other mamas are fabulous at it, but also, it turns out, there is a lovely blog that launched in Aprdoing a great job of sharing events. Do you know about them? Go over and say hello to A Mom in Chapel Hill, please. Tell them Triangle Mamas sent you.
Back to the matter at hand, however.
If you read my personal blog, then you know that I'm a musician. I'm a musician who believes that music in early childhood is absolutely key for optimal brain development.
I'm also a little neurotic sometimes. So much so, that I started taking my oldest son, Christopher, to Music Together classes when he was 7 weeks old.
Yes, I realize the insanity of that now, but what can I say? I had a good time, and the boy has solid rhythm and pretty good pitch now. He also has some phat communication skills and problem solving abilities for a 2.5 year old. Of course, I am his mother, and I also will tell you that he can probably achieve world peace if you would like for him to.
Anyway, Music Together with Suzanne isn't actually with Suzanne this year. It's with Catherine. This new teacher is fresh in from Austin, TX, and is phenomenal. I'm not kidding. She is so good - I want to go to her class everyday.
You don't have to believe me; you can see for yourself. There are two more free demo classes for the summer. Bring your kids, ages birth to five (seriously, 7 weeks old, people), to the Unitarian Universalist Church in Raleigh on Wade Avenue on Friday, August 6 and August 13 at 10:00 to meet Ms. K and her super cool and awesome guitar. She wears pearls with her t-shirt (points in her favor), but isn't too prissy to blow raspberries in a ionian tonal pattern (bonus points in her favor).
This is an original, unsponsored Triangle Mamas post, although Marty does do a little work for Suzanne on occasion. This, however, is not part of her work, just an invitation to join her and her boys at the next demo class. You can also join her at her blog, Don't Take the Repeats, on Twitter, or on Facebook.
(Also, that picture was taken on Halloween during class. Dressing like an animal is not required to attend.)
