Mixed Age 0-5
This is the essential Music Together® class, one that a child can attend
from birth through age five. 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.
3-5 year old class
This class is very much like the mixed age classes in that it is a family class which includes the parents. The combination and types of activities are research-based and support
children’s developing competence in tonality and rhythm. In addition,
activities evolve from the child’s world and include vocal play, animal
sounds, rhythm play, language play, and a good bit of genuine, silly
fun. Children and adults are able to let their imaginations run wild. Though some in this age group may still be in the observation stage during classes, the caregivers in their lives will see how the children take it on the road in the car and/or at home.
