& Carrots Music,
now a division of Juniors' Venture, Inc., is a New Jersey
based musical entertainment act that provides live music presentations
using both educational and traditional songs. In a typical 30-minute
program, the audience is introduced to rhythm & melody by one of our
performers singing and playing a guitar and/or various instruments. Peas &
Carrots Music uses music as that perfect medium to teach basic
fundamentals of everyday life such as the days of the week, the
diversity of animals & nature or just simple counting. Some good
'ole standards, such as "Head, Shoulders, Knees & Toes",
are not left out to maintain an element of familiarity to keep the
audience/participators singin', swingin' and smilin'. Various musical and percussive
instruments are made accessible for the children to make each
presentation an "in-the-mix" experience for them by
encouraging each child to sing, play & dance along. Being much more
than just "Circle Time", each class isn't just singing songs,
but an expression of each child through the art of music.
1 ˝- and 2-year-olds, their participation in a simple clap
along/stomp along program is encouraged, making them feel like part of
the music-making team. Both visual & audio stimulation is used to
help them develop social skills by being part of a group. Music is a
language in which everyone excels, regardless of age or ability.
•For 3-year-olds, we will give them an introduction to the most common aspect of modern music, melody. The premise of their program is basic sing-along/move-along to popular traditional songs with simple words and melodies. We have found that for this age group, lyrics are like calories, the fewer, the better.
•For 4-year-olds, Peas & Carrots Music uses the art of rhythm to accompany the sing-along skill that most children this age have mastered by bringing different percussive instruments such as maracas for your children to use. Also, various props will be at the children's disposal to "play-out" certain songs, such as using Autumn-colored scarves as falling leaves.
•For 5-year-olds and over, they will gain simple coordination like shaking a tambourine or playing a cowbell in time to music. Peas & Carrots Music will expose your children to some not-so-common songs & styles they may have never heard before. For this group, there will be assorted percussive & musical instruments made available to spark their minds in the creative process of making music.
Don't forget about our big brother!
