MIXED-AGE CLASS (newborn to 4 years old) This class is the model of Music Together. They provide a family-like environment that enables siblings to attend together and gives every child the freedom to participate without age specific expectations. Children at this age learn by interacting with different age groups through play. The older children gain confidence by showing their movement to younger ones, while younger ones get encouraged by looking at older ones doing all the activities.
3's-4's CLASS (children 3-4 years old) This class is more active physically as well as verbally. Children are encouraged to engage in more independent participation with their adults' help. We'll be introducing solfege (Do, Re, Mi,..etc) in our tonal patterns and we'll be playing rhythm patterns with more specific/detailed body movements. If you feel your child is missing more structured music program in school, this class will offer stronger musical experience. Children learn and express rhythm / melody / tonality and make up their own patterns of rhythm and melody by doing dramatic and imaginative play, large movements and solfege singing. Younger siblings are welcome.
BABIES ONLY CLASS (children under 7 months old) This class is for children under 10 months old and their caregivers. This is a great way to introduce music making to this young children by singing together, exploring our own voices with activities such as finger play, lap songs and songs without words. Also a great way to learn how your child learn, build special musical bonding through music making, and meet other parents. Infants are always welcome in our regular mixed age class as well.
