Family Style Class
Birth - 5 years: 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. Click to Register

Music Together Big Kids®
5 - 8 years: Music Together Big Kids® is a 60-minute
class geared to the interests and abilities of 5-, 6-, and 7-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.
Big Kids classes lay the foundation for Basic Music
Literacy, complementing music instruction in school or instrument lessons, and
leading to a lifetime of joyful music-making. The curriculum includes solfège,
solos and ensembles, folk dances, harmony singing, vocal development, and
drumming. In a safe, fun environment, your child can experiment with new
activities like conducting and improvisation, story songs, and game songs.
Parent attendance is welcome but not required. Each family
receives a Big Kids songbook, CD, solfège cards, and HomePlay activities, so
that the entire family can continue the fun and learning at home and parents
can stay connected with what the child is learning in class. Click to Register
Music Together® Babies
Birth - 8 months at start of semester: Every child’s development benefits from early exposure to
music and movement. Because the early months are so important, Music Together
offers two options for babies. Babies eight months and younger at the time of
registration may attend a Mixed Ages Class, whether registered on their own or
attending free with an older brother or sister. Babies may also take the
special “Babies Class” offered as a one-semester introduction to Music
Together. (This class cannot be repeated.) The music activities and materials
are specially designed for parents who want to learn as much as possible about
music development in babies. Meet other parents of newborns and learn some
fascinating music activities you can recreate at home with your baby. Click to Register
Music Together Generations is a mixed-age music class with the sweetest twist: the addition of elder participants! In senior residential and day programs across the country, people of all ages come together to sing, dance, shake shakers, and swing scarves.
As the children’s music-learning is nurtured, families also foster new and important relationships with the senior participants, who we call “Musical Grandfriends.” Seniors look forward to the children's lively visits and the chance to share memories and stories. The additional cognitive, physical, and emotional benefits for both children and elders make the Generations class a heartwarming win-win for everyone.
You'll value bringing this class into your child's foundational years. And if you haven't had much experience with older adults, you'll love what this class does for you, too. Click to Register
