What happens in a Music Together class?
Did you know that all children are musical? Have you ever wondered what you can do to nurture the musical growth of your child, regardless of your own musical ability?
Each week fully trained, registered Music Together teachers lead groups of six to twelve children and their parents or caregivers (nannies, babysitters, grandparents, or relatives) in forty-five minutes of music and movement experience. Each weekly class offers a dozen songs and rhythmic rhymes, including fingerplays, small- and large-movement activities, and instrument play. Each week is a different experience as we explore the wide variety of 25-28 songs/chants from our current collection of music (1 of 9 collections).
Experience Music Together® and find out how important--and how fun--your role can be!
BABIES IN MUSIC TOGETHER - Every child reaps developmental benefits from early exposure to music and movement! Because the early months are so important, Music Together offers TWO OPTIONS for Babies. Babies under 10 months at the start of their class may attend a Mixed-Age Class, whether on their own or attending FREE with an older sibling or twin. Babies up to 6 months may also take the special "Babies Class" offered as an introduction to the program (see description below).
MIXED-AGE FAMILY CLASS: EXPERIENCE AN EXCEPTIONAL MUSICAL LEARNING ENVIRONMENT FOR YOUR WHOLE FAMILY!
A Mixed-Age class is the essential Music Together class, one that a child can attend from birth through age five, exploring all nine song collections. This joyful class follows the recommendations of child development researchers—grouping together children of a variety of ages because this fosters natural, family-style learning. Younger children enjoy watching & imitating older ones; older children learn by leading younger ones; & adults are happy because the children in the family can go to class together - each child participates at his or her own level in singing, moving, chanting, listening, watching & exploring musical instruments. Any loving caregivers can bring the children. The whole family is welcome for this important and joyful family music experience!
