The Swan from Saint Saens

Baby SOH just loves to move to music. We visited her home on Father’s Day, and she was bopping along to some great music.

Baby SOH loves classical music too. She has loved Dance of the Toy Flutes, by Tchaikovsky, and her movements in our loungeroom have reflected how she has felt the music inside herself.

Today, she asked for Track 9 too (Dance of the Toy Flutes), and we tried The Swan today also. I thought it might be a bit slow, but she loved it, and moved gracefully with her whole body using movements of her own creation. She keep asking “Play it again”. And finally said in a big voice “I love that song!”. WOW!

She remembered her dancing when we were talking before she went to sleep. We talked about it with big Daddy.

Keep dancing through life, Baby SOH! love NannyJay


About nannyjay

I am an early childhood music specialist, with a passion for music, music for singing, music for children, classical music, contemporary, good quality folk recordings, moving to music that comes from a feeling within. Having recently become a grandmother, the months are flying past too quickly!! I have decided that I would like to record the musical journey Baby SOH and I will take together. Music enhances my own life, and I have seen the contribution music makes to family lives, and children's lives from their youngest days. I am also interested in the contribution music makes to family relationships. I love to sing myself, and so the Kodaly philosophy of music education sits very well with me. Zoltan Kodaly was a Hungarian music educator and composer, and believed that singing is the foundation for all music education. I will soon be attending the early childhood music seminar of the International Society of Music Educators in Beijing, China, which is very exciting. People from the world over meet to share the latest research in music for children 0 - 8 years. So the journey begins.
