Music Together® : Music & Movement for Children (newborn-age 4)
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 or two
semester introduction to Music Together. 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
Mixed-Age (newborn-age 4)
This is the essential Music
Together class, one that a child can attend from birth through age 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. Adults, regardless of
perceived musical ability, can help create an environment that supports
children achieving basic music competence in class, and at home. Any
caregivers—parents, grandparents, nanny—can bring the children. The whole
family is welcome for this important family music experience. Together, music
allows for fun and family bonding
