Birth - 5 years: This is the essential Music Together® class, one that a child can attend from birth through age five through all nine song collections. This basic class follows the recommendations of child development researchers—grouping children of a variety of ages because this fosters natural, family-style learning.
Younger children enjoy watching and imitating older ones; older children learn by leading younger ones; and 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, or exploring musical instruments. Any caregivers—parents, grandparents, nanny—can bring the children. The whole family is welcome for this important family music experience. Click to Register
5 - 8 years: Music Together Big Kids® is a 60-minute
class geared to the interests and abilities of 5-, 6-, and 7-year-olds.
The program blends the elements of Music Together that parents and children
love with new activities, skills, and challenges that are developmentally
appropriate for this age group.
Big Kids classes lay the foundation for Basic Music
Literacy, complementing music instruction in school or instrument lessons, and
leading to a lifetime of joyful music-making. The curriculum includes solfège,
solos and ensembles, folk dances, harmony singing, vocal development, and
drumming. In a safe, fun environment, your child can experiment with new
activities like conducting and improvisation, story songs, and game songs.
Parent attendance is welcome but not required. Each family
receives a Big Kids songbook, CD, solfège cards, and HomePlay activities, so
that the entire family can continue the fun and learning at home and parents
can stay connected with what the child is learning in class. Click to Register
