Since 2003 Hartbeeps has been delivering its unique blend of original music classes and mini productions to 1000's of babies and children. Challenging accepted definitions of 'baby and toddler' music classes; we create innovative, multi-sensory and highly interactive productions for the very young.
By transforming everyday environments into colorful, tactile 'wonderlands' we invite our participants to join us in a world of the imagination. Using clever state of the art music production, original music composition, sound effects, songs and sound plays, lighting effects, innovative props and puppetry together with a vast array of multi-sensory techniques, we create original and highly specialized experiences for our young Hartbeepers.
A magical recipe to make delicious Hartbeeps sound journeys:
Take a large portion of state of the art music technology and mix with a talented composer. Pour over plenty of BIG FUN songs, beautiful sensory music and top with some magic sprinkles. Add some larger than life drama, over-sized gestures, fabulous facial expressions and mix it up round and round. You can never have enough love and affection, cuddles and empathy so pile on dollops and dollops, it's very healthy, so don't hold back. If you can get hold of some passion and enthusiasm this will make this recipe truly irresistible. Whilst your mixture marinades, take some time to observe and listen to these clever little folk, you will learn so much and maybe some new things about yourself too.
What goes into the Hartbeeps mix...
Repetition and Variation are built into programs to offer young children reassurance of continuity, along with variation on a theme opening the world of the imagination and the opportunity to explore one's own creativity.
Our bespoke music library is now into the 100's and includes specially timed, sequenced and professionally composed songs, sound plays and sound effects. This has taken years to create and we are very proud of our unique collection. Clever simplicity is our art form as we strive to create original songs that will last a life time, as have the classic nursery rhymes that we have also lovingly re-produced so we can enjoy them in all their glory. Every session is created with a tailored backing track to provide a backdrop as we move through our wondrous sound journeys.
Everything in life has a rhythm
Hartbeeps identifies rhythm as an important educational principle. A baby grows within his or her mother's womb accompanied by the pulsing beat of the heart.
A young baby will respond to rhythmic movement, an older pre-walking baby is highly (and astoundingly) tuned into the rhythm within language, whilst toddlers and younger children will deeply and wholly connect with rhymes, songs, number games and more, if set to a rhythm.
The seasons offer a cycle of life, the ebb and flow of the sea can lull you, the ticking of a clock give you a sense of peace. Have you ever tapped your fingers on a surface as you aim to reorganize your thoughts? Well it is a scientific fact that rhythm helps organize the brain; add movement and you have a powerful platform for communicating with young children by engaging both hemispheres of the brain.
