We’ve had more than our share of time indoors last month so I thought I would sweeten the deal by listening to a lot of music at home. I purchased a vintage fisher price record player from eBay for my little one and I to enjoy music together and really for me to get nostalgic listening to old vinyls. It’s been amazing sharing music with her and she really loves it. She still likes familiar tunes but once in a while I will jazz it up with some of my favorite indie bands. Plus, that record player sure can take a beating even if a 3 year old likes to put the record on. They don’t make them like they used to. We’ll bang around on her assorted instruments but there’s a real mutual appreciation for live music. We love going to the music and movement playgroup at the Falmouth Library that the Coalition for Children provides but we’re still hankering for some more hands on music activities during the week. Now that the weather is nicer I thought we would take our musical adventures out of the house so I researched some musical options we could explore on the Cape. There is a sing-a-long drop in at the Cape Cod Children’s Museum on Tuesdays. For St. Patty’s Day week, our preschool is having Aoife Clancy come in to play some Irish music and later this month on Friday, March 29, 2013 she is playing at Mashpee Library for the public for free. I’m looking forward to finding other free music activities and events. One day my toddler might even want to actually play that guitar that she currently loves to use as a coat rack.
