What can I expect from class?
Music Together® classes nurture a child’s natural enthusiasm for music and movement. We sing, dance, chant, and play instruments together in an informal setting. Young children get the opportunity to not only learn through play and experimentation but also watch and listen to the grownups they love and look up to. In fact, this modeling is essential to their growth into confident music-makers. But don’t worry, you already have the only skill you’ll need – the desire to play and have fun with your child! Just being there as a role model and sharing the experience is enough to make a powerful difference. Our teachers are specially trained to create a safe atmosphere where you can happily join in, experiment, and even get silly – all while strengthening the bond with your child.
Why are there different ages in one class?
Music Together's development of the mixed-age approach in early childhood music began in the 1980s. In each class I strive to create a musically rich, developmentally appropriate environment where the whole family can enjoy music and nurture skills at the level right for each child. Mixed-age classes also provide a rich learning environment because children of different ages thrive when they interact with each other: the babies are often fascinated by the older child, and the “big” children enjoy helping and sharing with the “little” ones. This approach is based on research from music education, early childhood development, and family relationships.
How big are classes?
Each class has 6 to 12 registered children with their adults.
What should I do in class with my child?
You are there to be your child's role model so come ready to sing dance and have fun. The songs and dances are very accessible. You don't need to sing in tune to give your child a positive experience in class. Try not to talk with your child during class in order to help maintain their musical experience. Of course keep your child safe during class, but your main role is to relax and have a good time in class.
