Hickory, Dickory Tickle, and Bounce
Dear Village Parent:
Hickory, dickory dock, steady beat is needed to walk! And this steady beat, the
underlying pulse in music, is the focus of these first two weeks. An extremely important
component for your baby’s emerging skills, steady beat will continue to play a vital part
in her development throughout the coming years.
Most people, your baby included, have a strong internal sense of pulse. It all begins in the
womb, when you first heard your mother’s heartbeat. As you listen to your beautiful At
Home CD this week, hold your baby close to your heart, simply listen to the music, and
move as you do so. It will be your best practice session ever!
See you next week!
