Music helps us get in touch with, express, and manage our emotions and enhances our ability to communicate—even before we master language. Imagine instilling that power in your child! At this age, they’re uniquely suited to connect with music. And by helping them embrace music and some basic skills early on, you give your child a valuable tool for relaxing, focusing, expressing themselves, and communicating heart-to-heart in ways that can serve them all their lives.
From babyhood through the early elementary years, Music Together nurtures each child’s natural musicality. In family classes, grownups learn together with their children and then re-create the fun at home with our recordings and songbooks. In addition to being valuable for its own sake, numerous studies have shown that music learning supports all learning. A Music Together class allows your child to learn and grow in a playful environment that is musically rich and always supportive of their learning style and stage of development.
Children learn by watching others and by playing and experimenting. Just imagine how much they could learn in a music class where children from birth to age 5 are all participating at their own levels—singing, moving, listening, observing, and exploring musical instruments in a welcoming and supportive environment. Our Mixed-age Class is just right for all children. And here’s why.
Child development researchers have found that grouping together children of varying ages fosters natural, family-style learning. The hallmark of the Music Together program, our Mixed-age Class gives children the environment they need to grow musically while interacting both socially and musically with peers of different ages. Younger children enjoy watching and imitating older ones; older children learn by leading younger ones; and adults are happy because their children can go to class together. And any or all of your child’s caregivers—parents, grandparents, nannies—can come share in the experience, both in class and at home. The whole family is welcome!
