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. Classes meet once a week for 45 minutes and are 10 weeks long.
A demonstration class is a opportunity for your family to experience a Music Together class first hand. Your first demo class is always free! Demonstration classes will help you understand the basic Music Together philosophy and the importance of early exposure to music. You will also be educated on your child's musical journey and go home with practical ideas to bring music into your everyday life. As in all Music Together classes we expect parents to sit in a circle with their child and participate, keeping in mind that YOU are your child's best role model. Your child is welcome to participate at their own level. Some children will simply observe and take in their surroundings or your child may jump in and participate right away. In Music Together classes we appreciate all different types of learning styles. We never expect kids to sit still or do anything they are uncomfortable with, our classes are relaxed, playful and have engaging activites. Come and experience Music Together for yourself! You will be glad you did.
