Jammin Baby offers music for young kids, families

Posted December 26, 2010

Erica Berry was a corporate lawyer when her family relocated to North Carolina and she decided to get back to doing what she really loved: Music.

Berry, a mom of two who studied voice and musical theater in college, had taken a Music Together class with her older daughter, who is now 8 when she decided to bring it to the Triangle. Jammin Baby class Jammin Baby offers music for kids, families

Music Together classes involve lots of movement, instrument playing, singing and dancing. The program mixes ages and encourages family involvement. A goal is to foster a life-long love of music by making it a regular part of a child's life.

Berry's Jammin Baby, a presenter of Music Together, has grown to include other teachers as well. Classes are now offered at locations across the Triangle and (attention working parents) on Saturdays.

Check the website for more information. And watch the video to learn more about Berry and see a bit of a recent class.

Berry will be part of Raleigh's First Night New Year's Eve children's celebration.

From 2:15 p.m. to 3 p.m. Friday in the Daniels Auditorium of the N.C. Museum of History, participants can jam along with Berry and learn a bit about what Music Together is all about. And from 3:30 p.m. to 6 p.m., she'll be in the history museum's LongLeaf Room, which will be turned into the Jammin Baby Toddler Room, offering fun and safe music-based activities  for the youngest First Night revelers.

You'll need a First Night button to attend. Buttons cost $9 in advance.
