Music Together®
: Music & Movement for Children (newborn-age 4)
Babies (newborn-8 months)
Every child’s development benefits from early exposure to music and movement. Because the early months are so important, Music Together offers two options for babies.

Babies may also take the special “Babies Class” offered as a one or two semester introduction to Music Together. The music activities and materials are specially designed for parents who want to learn as much as possible about music development in babies. Meet other parents of newborns and learn some fascinating music activities you can recreate at home with your baby

Mixed-Age (newborn-age 4)

This is the essential Music Together class, one that a child can attend from birth through age four 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. Adults, regardless of perceived musical ability, can help create an environment that supports children achieving basic music competence in class, and at home. Any caregivers—parents, grandparents, nanny—can bring the children. The whole family is welcome for this important family music experience. Together, music allows for fun and family bonding

Older Kids Class (age 3-5)
This is for (experienced!) 3-5 year old children who have had a lot of Music Together and are ready for something a little different". Content includes playing rhythm-patterns, improvisation, introduction to musical concepts, children conducting, and dramatic play. Younger siblings also allowed in class.
