Music Together®

Our essential Mixed Age class is one that a child attends from birth through age 5 and is currently being offered outdoors and in the classroom. Music Together is designed to teach the way young children learn--through play. 

 

We take a natural, family-style approach to all of our classes. The grownups follow the teacher’s lead, so the little ones can watch their musical example and participate at their own level. Babies watch the big kids who show off their developing musical skills—it’s magical to watch the interactions in a Mixed Age class!

During each music class, the teacher leads music activities for the whole family to sing, play, and jam along to. Each class has been designed as an interactive music-making experience for little ones with their grownups. The class includes a range of musical experiences, from playful free-movement to instrumental jam sessions, where each child participates at their own level: singing, moving, listening, watching, or exploring instruments. 

During each session, we explore a different collection of songs that draw from folk tunes mixed with sounds from around the globe and chants in unusual tonalities and meters. Each family receives a songbook, CD and download code for the mobile app to bring the music home and make it a part of everyday life and routines.

Music Together Babies

Music Together: Babies Only

Designed to facilitate an active support for infants' musical growth, the goal of this class is to create a special bond between parent and child through music. 

The music activities in a Babies class are specifically designed to teach parents how to support music development in infancy and how to connect with their infants through music, using concepts like “purposeful touch,” “sound layering,” and “dancing for baby.” This gentle class is focused on the needs of infants who are not yet crawling, such as babbling with baby, finger plays, infant massage, and large movement.

Mini Musicians 

A positive, creative, and exploratory first introduction to music for 4-6 year olds in a group setting. The program incorporates piano playing and will provide great preparation for more traditional piano lessons, but is also beneficial for children who will go on to study other instruments too as they will be exploring pitch, patterns, and rhythm. Caregivers are required to stay in class to encourage participation and observe progress.
