This is the essential Music Together® class, one that a child can attend from birth through age five - and through all nine song collections. Child development researchers recommend mixed-age groupings because they foster 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, and exploring musical instruments. The class provides a variety of adult-child activities that are fun and offer new ways to play musically at home. Parents, grandparents, or nanny, individually or together, may accompany the children. The whole family is welcome for this important family music experience.
This offering, for babies eight months and younger, is a one-semester introduction to Music Together. The music materials and activities are specially designed for parents who want to learn as much as possible about music development in infants. Meet other parents of newborns and learn music activities you can recreate at home with your baby.

The Music Together Big Kids class is for children 5 - 7 years old. Whereas the focus in the Mixed Age class is on basic music competence, in the Big Kids class the goal is basic music literacy. The classes are 60 minutes long, and prepare children for basic music literacy with a more sophisticated, structured approach, with activities designed to meet this age group's need for structure, rules, and games while still wanting to play. Your child will build life skills such as leadership, decision-making and teamwork at the same time as he builds his music skills.
