Mix Aged Group
Watch and Learn
Toddlers 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 your toddler. And here's why.
Mixed Ages: Variety Is the Spice of Your Child’s Life!
Child development researchers have found that grouping together children of varying ages fosters natural, family-style learning. Children—even babies!—are inspired and stimulated through interaction with peers of different ages: younger children watch and imitate older ones, older children lead younger ones, and adults are happy because their children are in class together. Your baby will engage at their own level, vocalizing, moving, listening, observing, and exploring musical instruments. 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!
Big Kids classes
Big Kids. They have minds of their own and they know what they like. They are ready to take ownership and lead musical activities with their peers. They want to dig deeper and understand how music works. That's what these classes are all about.
Music Together® Big Kids® is a 60-minute class geared to the interests and abilities of 5-, 6-, and 7-year-olds. The program blends the elements of Music Together that parents and children love with new activities, skills, and challenges that are developmentally appropriate for this age group. These classes lay the foundation for Basic Music Literacy, complementing in-school music instruction or instrument lessons and leading to a lifetime of joyful music-making. The curriculum includes solfège, solos and ensembles, folk dances, harmony singing, vocal development, and drumming. In a safe and fun environment, your child can experiment with new activities like game songs, story songs, conducting, improvisation, and composition.
Like the idea of joining in on the fun? As a parent, your attendance is welcome but not mandatory. You'll receive our Big Kids songbook, CD, solfège cards, and HomePlay activities, so that your entire family can continue the fun and learning at home—and you can stay connected to what your child is learning in class.
