This is the essential Music Together® class, one that a child can attend from birth through age five - and through all nine song collections. This basic class follows the recommendations of child development researchers, grouping children of a variety of ages in one class. This approach fosters natural, family-style learning where 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. We welcome the whole family too join in this important family music experience, and any caregiver - parents, grandparents, nanny - can bring the child(ren) to class.
Each 6-10 week semester includes:
- 45-minute weekly classes featuring a new collection every fall, winter, and spring. The 6 week summer semester reviews favorite songs from various collections.
- New CDs and downloadable song collections of songs, rhythm chants, instrumental play-alongs, tonal and rhythm patterns used in class.
- A Beautifully illustrated songbook with family activities to get your family doing Music Together at home.
- Family resources available at your fingertips through Hello Everybody App and the Family Music Zone.
