Holiday Music Making

Tis the season to be musical!

At this year’s Home for the Holidays the music therapists from Roman Music Therapy Services joined the Melrose community in leading music before lighting the tree. This year BOARD CERTIFIED MUSIC THERAPIST Laura Micheli asked her Sprouting Melodies 4 class what songs they would like to singholidays start with music at the Tree Lighting.

Sprouting Melodies is Roman Music Therapy’s early childhood music program for children ages 0-6 years. Sprouting Melodies 4 is designed for children between the ages of two and a half to four years. All the children from class were able to attend the Tree Lighting and joined the music therapists on microphones to sing “Frosty the Snowman”. The children especially loved singing the “Thumpity Thump Thump” lyrics faster and faster as practiced in class.

All the families of Melrose sang together until the tree was lit like magic! Then the music continued as families made their way down Main Street to greet Santa! It was a Magical Musical Night to remember!

Make sure to have music be a part of your holiday tradition to create special memories to pass on between the generations!
