Mixed Age (0-4yrs)
This is the essential Music Together® class, one that a child can attend from 3 mo. through age three or four, 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. Please note that children in these classes tend to be between age 6 mo to age 3 and even some up to age 4 that are siblings. 5yr old siblings may also be registered in a mixed age class.
This class is geared to children ages 3 & 4 yrs. This is still a parent/child Music Together class and will use the same materials as a mixed age class. Younger siblings ARE allowed to be registered and can participate at their own developmental level, with the understanding that the activities will be geared to the older kids.
Babies Class (under 8 mo)
Watch a very short baby class video!
Babies under 8 months, and their caregivers, are invited to take a special Babies Class, as a one semester introduction to Music Together. When surrounded by music, babies actually begin reacting and trying to make music with you! Learn how to recognize and encourage that playful exchange while also encouraging bonding and musical response with your baby. Music 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 some fascinating music activities you can recreate at home with your baby. Any caregivers—parents, grandparents, nanny—can bring the children. Both parents or grandparents are welcome for this important family music experience. Please note babies are also allowed in mixed age classes ages 0-4yrs.
MT Guitar class for Grownups
Imagine the joy of playing music for your child while they dance, sing, and laugh. Our Guitar Class for Grownups was designed for parents and caregivers of children currently enrolled in Music Together. (A wonderful opportunity for the parent who does not attend class, too!) In this 60-minute class, you'll learn to play selected songs from the current song collection so you can make even MORE beautiful music at home. This class accommodates both beginners who have never held a guitar and those who already have some skill. You'll be playing Music Together songs in no time.
