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.
NOTE: NEW!! RHYTHM KIDS CLASSES ARE HERE! Music Together Rhythm Kids™ is a 45-minute class geared to the interests and abilities of 5 - 8 year-olds. The program blends the elements of Music Together that parents and children love with new activities, skills, and challenges that are developmentally appropriate for this age group.
Rhythm Kids classes lay the foundation for Basic Music Literacy, complementing music instruction in school or formal instrument lessons, and leading to a lifetime of joyful music-making. The curriculum includes composing and conducting, solos and ensembles, harmony singing, vocal development, collaborating with friends and drumming games. In a safe, fun environment, your child can experiment with new activities like improvisation, story songs, and game songs.
