Mixed Age Family Class
A Music Together® Family Class is:
-A community of families sharing songs, instrument play,rhythm chants, and movement activities in a relaxed, playful, non-performance-oriented setting.
-Music learned through developmentally appropriate activities that support and respect the unique learning styles of very young children.
-Infants, toddlers, and preschoolers participating at their own levels in family-style classes of mixed ages.
-Parents and caregivers contributing to the enrichment of their child's music environment - regardless of their own musical abilities.
-A new song collection every semester for three years, featuring great arrangements of original and traditional songs in a wide variety or tonalities, meters, and cultural styles.
-45 minutes of PURE FUN with your child every week!
For you and your young children age 0-5 years. Siblings may attend the same class, with sibling discounts. Songbook and CDs are included, a different collection every semester. Fall, winter, and spring semesters meet for ten weeks, summer for six.
Babies are born musical! The Babies Only class is an introductory class just for new families with new babies, newborn through 7 months old. You will be amazed at the musical responses your child will exhibit, even though they are not yet mobile or verbal. In this class, the activities are specifically designed to teach you how to support music development in infancy and how to connect with your baby through music using methods such as "purposeful touch," "sound-layering," "dancing for baby," etc. And since our Babies Class uses the same song collections as our other classes, you will experience a seamless transition as your baby grows into our mixed-age classes. 45 minutes, 8 weeks (and invited to attend weeks 9 and 10 in mixed-age class, no extra charge, space permitting), Songbook and CDs included. Babies 0-7 months are also welcome in the mixed age classes, and are free (through 7 months of age) if they are accompanying an older sibling in a mixed age class.
