Mariela’s Music Time Environmental Sing-A-Long For Kid’s & Family

Saturday | February 20, 2021 | 11:00 am — 12:00 pm

Online Event

Mariela’s Music Time is an educational, energetic and interactive bilingual performance for infants, toddlers, preschoolers and their families. Children will learn about reuse and the things they can do to care for the environment from musician-educator Mariela Herrera.

A favorite at the Berkeley Farmers Markets, Mariela will lead young students to move and sing to a Latin beat and singalong in both Spanish and English.

Filled with rhythm and multi-cultural sounds, she will use maracas and rhythm sticks and more. Her sing-a-long songs and discussion will address the topic of reuse and encourage them to ask questions. Use, don’t abuse! Recycle and reuse! will be the message that includes science, conservation and ecology.

For the past decade, Mariela has drawn upon her background in music and studies of Early Childhood Education to create a program that not only explores the music, but also addresses the kids’ curiosity by telling the history of the instruments and their cultures. She uses kinesthetic techniques in her bilingual storytelling to make foreign words understood. In no time, the kids are singing in another language as they dance and have fun.
