Mixed Ages (0-5y)
This is the essential Music Together® class, one that a child can attend from birth to age five through all nine song collections. This 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.
Rhythm Kids 1 (5-7y)
Rhythm Kids 1 is the next musical step for your preschool child (ages 5‒7y) with a parent or caregiver. Each week we drum, sing, dance, play rhythm instruments, and play music-based games.Children are guided toward developmentally appropriate music and movement activities, where they can begin to take charge, lead others, and be musically creative.
Babies Only (0-8m)
- Explore the world of rhythm through movement, instrument play, and song
- Develop basic rhythm skills, like keeping beat, improvising, ensemble play, and soloing
- Learn to create, cooperate, and express themselves musically
The one-semester Music Together Babies class was created especially for families with infants under 8 months old. That's right: it's never too early to start your baby's musical journey! Babies are naturally musical --- and you don't have to be a great singer or dancer yourself to nurture their love of music. Music Learning Supports All Learning®, and in this class, your Music Together teacher will show you how you can support your baby's music and overall development through simple and fun activities. You'll learn lots of musical ways to connect with your little one through music, and you'll bond with the other new parents in your class, too.
