About Music Together
Not just for mommy and me...as a family in one of our classes, you and your child will have the opportunity to play musically each week under the guidance of one of our early childhood music specialists. During class, you will sing and move to songs and rhythmic rhymes in a variety of meters and tonalities by participating in activities that include small and large movement, instrument play-alongs and community singing. These fun activities are presented as informal, non-performance-oriented musical experiences that are developmentally appropriate for children and easy for parents and caregivers to participate in regardless of their own musical ability!
What will you and your child find in a Music Together class?
Your musical buffet will be complete with music from around the globe as well as original compositions written for Music Together classes. You'll find drums of all sorts, bells, triangles, shakers, balls, kitchen instruments, scarves, stretchy dancing ribbons - instruments galore! Listen and look for meows and moos, jumping frogs, squirrels and firetrucks stuck in an old oak tree and jiggling jelly all around the kitchen. We take silly very seriously!
You will find high energy movers and quiet observers all intently involved in their own way in the exciting musical happenings around them. Children in our mixed aged classes range from ages 0-5.
Music Together classes provide a true family music experience, as siblings can attend the mixed age family classes together. Moms, dads, aunts, uncles, grandparents and best buddies are all invited to attend. Find your Music Together class today!
Preschool Music Together®
Music Together® also offers classes designed for preschool settings. Weekly Music Together Preschool classes are 30- to 45-minutes long and include an artistically conceived flow of songs, nursery rhymes, instrumental jam sessions, fingerplays, and movement activities. The combination and types of activities are research-based and support children’s developing competence in tonality and rhythm. In addition, activities evolve from the child’s world and include vocal play, animal sounds, rhythm play, language play, and a good bit of genuine, silly fun. Classes are taught by a registered Music Together teacher who is trained in music development and skilled in leading participatory music activity. Children “bring the music home” to their parents through the family CD and songbook.
