Classes

A Music Together® Class is:

 

• A community of families sharing songs, instrument play, rhythm chants and

   movement activities in a relaxed, playful, nonperformance-oriented setting.

• 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.

• Music learned through developmentally-appropriate activities that support

   and respect the unique learning styles of very young children.

• A new song collection each semester, featuring great arrangements of original

   and traditional songs in a wide variety of tonalities, meters and cultural styles.

• 45 minutes of PURE FUN with your child every week!

Do infants really benefit?

 

Yes! Music is a whole brain activity and during infancy the brain is developing at a faster rate than at any other time

of their lives, so the infant brain is the ideal brain to expose to musical experiences! Infants’ participation will seem

passive at first, as they actively absorb what they are seeing, hearing and feeling. Throughout each semester,

Music Together teachers help caregivers learn to recognize their infant’s musical responses and point out musical

milestones. As their bodies and nervous systems mature, infants often show progressively more complex musical

responses and evidence of song recognition. Parents will learn in class how to nurture their child’s music

development and how to create or enhance the musical bond with their child. 

About our mixed-age format...

In the 1980's Music Together pioneered the development of the mixed-age approach in early childhood music. In each class

we strive to create a musically-rich, developmentally-appropriate environment where the whole family can enjoy music and

nurture skills at the level right for each child. Mixed-age classes also provide a rich learning environment because children of

different ages thrive when they interact with each other: the babies are often fascinated by the older child, and the "big"

children (3- and 4-year-olds) enjoy helping and sharing with the "little" ones. This approach is based on research from music

education, early childhood development, and family relationships, as well as our 30 years experience in the field.
