MUSIC JAM SESSION FOR TODDLERS & BABIES
Real Musicians, Real Instruments, Really Fun!
More than your average sing-a-long, Portland Music Entertainment’s Music Jam Sessions for children are interactive music-making and singing sessions designed for children ages 3 months and up. The sessions are led by Pablo Grabiel, owner of Portland Music Entertainment and professional guitar player, with the accompaniment of some of Portland’s best professional musicians. Pablo provides a box full of fun percussion and rhythm instruments and leads the group in song, keeping a beat and other fun music-oriented games and skills.
The idea behind the jam sessions is to expose children to music, musical instruments and professional performers at an early age to promote hand-eye coordination, rhythm, group play and cooperation, following directions and — most of all — a love of and appreciation for live music!
Please sign up for our mailing list for information about our next session.
Host a Jam Session at Your Child’s Birthday Party or Playgroup!
Pablo and other professional musicians are available to conduct jam sessions for birthday parties and playgroups. Just like our public jam sessions, we bring the instruments and lead the group in song and rhythm. We can take special song requests and serenade the birthday boy or girl.
Entertain the Adults and Kids at the Same Time!
Tired of canned music at your child’s birthday party? Hire Pablo or members of his group to lead a jam session for the kids and add a drummer, sax player, upright bass, another guitar or pianist (or a combination thereof) to the mix and you and your guests can enjoy a live jazz ensemble for your party. We can play straight-ahead jazz, latin or jazzy kids tunes.
Email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call Pablo (202-441-8344 ) for a quote availability, options and more information.
Pablo’s Work With Children
Pablo Grabiel has over a decade of experience using music in his work with children.
Upon graduating from UCLA, Pablo worked as a Behavior Analyst for families with developmentally disabled children where he began incorporating the therapeutic values of music into his work with children and special needs populations. He wrote music designed to curb specific behavioral issues and to teach replacement behaviors and encourage daily routines. Pablo also began to use music with challenged adults and children as a means of therapeutic recreation. Today Pablo continues to work with children on a regular basis through private guitar instruction as well as through his interactive children’s music classes.
