My Daughter just celebrated her 3rd Birthday this past weekend and due to COVID-19 we were not able to invite her friends and relatives. We were planning to do an online celebration but was having trouble creating activities and we found out that Sasha and Kana at Hug Melody Music are providing Virtual (Zoom) Birthday Party. Sasha and Kana were able to custom tailor the birthday event to our needs and including creating a Special & Original Birthday Song plus Professional Recording of the Original Song for my daughter. Everyone had a good time on my daughter’s birthday even though it was only an online celebration. Thank you again, Sasha and Kana!

Ms. Kana believes the power of music to make one’s live more healthy and meaningful.

She emphasizes, especially to music therapists and teachers, the importance of experiencing the power within yourself and fully embodying the music’s impact because then you will be better equipped to give to your clients and community.

This will also prevent music professionals from burnout.

Who still appreciates CDs and beautiful jackets of CDs? ストリーミングが主流な中「やっぱりCDを買うのが好き」という人いますか?(日本語下👇)

Today, I was organizing drawers that Sasha keep over 3000 CDs😳 and found this beautiful artwork which is a jacket of an album “Anonymoth” by @micanx .

Her work really shows she cares to the details, not only her music but also its album title (beautiful) and this artwork.

Suddenly, I remember the times I was collecting my favorites artists’ CDs and was always excited about album jackets.

Did you have any CD albums that you love music as well as the artwork? Please share!
———————————————————
サシャが約3000枚のCDを保管してる引き出しから、こんな素敵なジャケットのCDを見つけました。

@micanx によるアルバム、『Anonymoth』

彼女の作品は、細部まで妥協が一切なく、それは音楽はもちろんのことこのジャケットにも、そして秀逸なタイトルにも表れてます。

ふと、大好きなアーティストのCD発売のたびにドキドキしていた時代を思い出しました。心待ちにして発売日に買いに行って、ジャケット見て興奮したりちょっとがっかりしたり。。。

あなたの思い出の中でジャケットも音楽も愛して何度も何度も聞いたアルバムはありますか?是非シェアしてね。

Does your kids love playing outside? 💕屋外の音楽クラスが大人気!

Playing and learning music outside is such a great idea & we’ve been having a great time in Hug Melody (0-4yrs old) and Hug Melody Kids (3-5yrs old).

This is a perfect way for kids to:
💛socialize with other kids
💛get lots of fresh air and sunlight
💛learn and grow their love for music
💛bond with parents

What are the activities your kids love to do outdoor? We may incorporate into our class. Share in the comment!
——————————————————————
0-4歳児向けのハグメロディと3-5歳児向けのハグメロディキッズ屋外クラスでは、音楽を楽しむだけでなく、子供達が健康的に太陽の光を浴びたり美味しい空気を吸いながら、他の子供達と触れ合ったり、親子の繋がりを深めたり、良いことたくさん!
4/5月クラスは完売ですが、もうすぐ6/7月クラスのレジストが始まりますので、お見逃しなく!

💡 Do you know that singing increases Oxitocin "bonding" hormone? 歌を歌うとオキシトシン(別名「幸せホルモン」の分泌が活発になるのを知ってますか?(日本語下👇)

Do you know that music helps you and your child bond better and help him or her improve their developmental skills?

​Hug Music is a team of Music Therapists, who utilize the strong power of music to help children improve important life skills.

​But most importantly, those skills will be aquatinted only when therapists build a rapport with children. And, music is the best tool to bond!

​So, we are sharing some of the tips that you can easily use with your loved ones right away!

​What do you use?

​Your voice! That's it!

And some creative ideas!

First, what is your child's favorite song?

​Wheels' on the Bus, Twinkle Twinkle, Row Row, Old McDonald's Farm...

​These are all good choices. So, pick one and sing along.

​Hold hands and make eye contact while singing with your child .... you and your child already feel connection.💓

​Now, sing with motions. Sway, move back and forth.

​Go fast and go slow...

​Sing loud like a lion 🦁 with a big motion or sing quietly like a mouse 🐭

​We are sharing many creative ideas. Slide and see all the ideas and try it today!

​Share how your child liked it and what did you notice in the comment.

​---------------------------------
​音楽を使うと子供との絆を深めることができるだけでなく、子供の身体能力や幸せ感をアップさせるってしってますか?

​今日は、今すぐにお子様とできる簡単なティップスをご紹介します。
使うのは「声」だけです。楽器は入りません!

​まず、お子さんの好きな曲はありますか?
​キラキラ星、メリーさんの羊、どんぐりコロコロ、、、なんでもいいです。

​まずそれを一緒に歌って見ましょう。目を見て、手をつないで。
それだけでもう楽しい気持ちになりますよね。

​そしたら、今度は体を一緒に動かしてみましょう。どんぐりコロコロって歌いながら手遊びをします。
​音を聞いて、手を動かすことで、聴覚と手先を同時に使う感覚が伸びていきます。さらには視覚も使うのでいろんな神経が同時に刺激されます。

​そしたらその次は、歌う早さを変えてみましょう。
​どんぐりコロコロをゆーーーーっくり歌った後は、一気にテンポを早めて早口で歌ってみましょう。

​子供達はこれがだーーい好き。コロコロと笑い始めること間違いありません。

​これで楽しんだあとは、今度は歌う声の大きさを変えます。
​「大きなどんぐりやってみよう」などと言って、想像力を掻き立て、大きな動作をしながら大きな声で歌います。そのあとは、「今度は小さなどんぐり歌ってみよう」と言って、小さな声で小さな動きをしながら歌ってみましょう。
​お子さんに「どのくらいの大きさのどんぐり?」って聞いてみてもいいですね。

​お子さんが、歌詞をだいたい覚えたかな?と思った頃には"Fill in the Blank"という「空白埋め」のテクニックを使ってみましょう。やり方は簡単。

​「どんぐりコロコロ、どんぐりこ。お池にはまって、さあ。。。。?」
​とフレーズの最後を歌わずに残します。すると子どもが
​「たいへん!」と続きを歌えるようになります。

このように一つの曲で色んな遊び方ができます。是非試してみてください!

どんな風だったか、コメントで教えてね! @ Hug Music

#heavyhearted Our hearts are aching for what happened in Atlanta last week.

As an Asian immigrant, a minority couple and human beings whose life mission is to bring harmony to the community through music, the news, racism and hate crime break our hearts and made us think deeply....

​One thing we are sure we can do is that through music, we can show children examples of what "unity" really is.

​In our music classes, we meet children from different backgrounds and cultures.

​Many of them speak more than two languages and have diverse heritage.

​We simply have fun making music without even thinking of how we look, skin colors, language, accents, etc.

​We meet people by connecting inside; heart to heart.

​While we feel the importance of speaking up and let the society know that there is racism we experience everywhere, we believe the way to make positive changes come from education.

​So, we continue to do what we believe doing; making music with others, no matter what.
