The Essential Music Together® Class

This is the essential Music Together class, one that a child can attend from birth through kindergarten through all nine song collections. 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 developmental level in singing, moving, chanting, listening, observing, or exploring musical instruments.

The whole family is welcome for this important family music experience, and any caregiver - parents, nanny, grandparents - can bring the child(ren) to class. During the Fall, Winter and Spring trimesters, classes meet once a week for 9, 10, or 11 weeks. During the summer, classes meet once a week for 6 weeks.

Babies < 8 months old

Early Exposure to Music and Movement

Every child's music 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 sibling. Babies eight months and under may also take the special "Babies Class" offerred as a one-trimester introduction to Music Together (this class may not be repeated). 

The music activities and materials 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. 

Guitar For Grownups

 

 

Dust off that old guitar you haven't played since college and become a rock star to your child! This 60-minute class is designed for parents, grandparents and nannies with children currently enrolled in our Family Classes. Participants will learn basic strums and chords for more than a dozen songs from the current Music Together song collection, building technique and musicianship in an organic, relaxed way. This class is good for rank beginners as well as those who can already play some songs. It is "mixed-stage!"
