Mixed Age - Parent/child class

 

Mixed Ages Classes

 

 - - - Due to COVID-19 in 2020 we have revised our classes to Small Pod Classes - - -

 

Small PODS of 4-6 children. 

Birth to 6 years: 

We are so excited to be able to make Music Together®® in person again! Our new EIGHT week in-person winter semester will take place inside (or if weather permits, outside). For all classes, families should bring a big blanket to sit on. Your blanket will help provide a clear visual boundary for social distancing while we sing, dance, and jam together-- but at least 6 feet apart. The only thing we'll share is our love for making music together! Social distancing will be practiced throughout the class. Each family will bring their own instruments to class (eggs, sticks and scarves). Information on purchasing instruments will be emailed to families, or they can bring what they already own.
 

  • Masks will be required during class for adults.   Masks are recommended for children over 2yrs.
     

  • There will be 1 in-person make-up class.  If your family has to miss a class, you must notify me asap.  
     

  • POD classes are closed to families not enrolled in the class. Make-ups and drop-ins will not be allowed in POD classes. It’s important that during the pandemic, we only include our “registered” participants.
     

  • Depending on weather – we may have some classes outside.

These socially distant activities focus on adult/child interaction rather than child/child interaction, so children of different ages (such as siblings) can enjoy class together. Also, many childhood educators consider mixed-age groupings beneficial and the process of music development throughout this age range is similar. Adults, regardless of their own musical ability, find it fun and easy to help create an environment that supports any child in achieving basic music competence. Children participate at their own level in classes of mixed ages by singing, moving, chanting, listening, and exploring musical instruments.

The Essential Music Together Class  (Pre Covid-19)

This is the essential Music Together class, one that a child can attend from birth through kindergarten—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 to join in this important family music experience and any caregiver—parents, grandparents, nanny—can bring the child(ren) to class. 

 Come immerse yourself in a rich musical environment.  Bring your inner child because your kids won't be the only ones having fun!

If you peek into a Music Together class, you will see that beautiful dance of interaction between parents and their children while joyfully singing, clapping, laughing, hopping, dancing, playing instruments, and creating lasting memories.
