Do Re Mi Babies offers exciting and engaging music & movement for babies and toddlers ages 0-5 years. These uniquely designed classes are for both parent/caregiver and baby to develop a love of music together!
Music is such a magical and important cornerstone of early childhood development. Music builds brain connections that help children develop skills in language, math, emotion regulation and social awareness and more! The programs at Do Re Mi Babies have been created and developed to specifically help build your child’s WHOLE brain through music, movement, interaction and play!
Participants will learn and sing a variety of songs and lullabies, dance and move their bodies to different songs and rhythms, learn songs in different languages including sign language, play musical games, make their very own musical instruments, and more!
Thank you for providing a fun learning environment that me and my baby could bond in! Christina’s baby music class was such an enjoyable experience for myself and my son. Watching him listen to music, interact with the other babies, and learn new songs was so much fun for both of us. This turned into one of our favourite activities to do together. Christina was so amazing at meeting each individual child where they were at. I would recommend this to any mom or caregiver who is looking for a fun activity to do with their baby!

I was so happy to be a part of Christina’s Do Re Mi Babies music class with my baby – it was always the highlight of our week! Christina created a fun and comfortable environment to learn music and try new things. Each class was well thought out, engaging and dynamic. I will cherish the memories made and remember the songs and rhymes we learned at music class for years to come!

Hi, I’m Christina, Creator and Instructor of Do Re Mi Babies!
My name is Christina Free and I love making, performing and teaching all things music! I have been playing the violin since age 5 and the piano since the age of 4 and probably started singing even younger than 4! I have been playing the violin and piano and singing for over 25 years and have taught private and group music lessons to children and adults for over 10 years.
I was inspired to create Do Re Mi Babies after the birth my first son. I wanted to start a program specifically for babies and young children after experiencing the joy I felt when I would play music for and with my own child and witnessed his incredible engagement at such a young age! Music is my passion and my goal is to help families develop and foster a love of music together!
Having researched and studied the many benefits of music in baby’s brain development, I wanted to share my knowledge and skills with other parents so they could also reap the benefits that music brings in early childhood development for their families.
