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 to join in this important family music experience, and any caregiver—parents, grandparents, nanny—can bring the child(ren) to class.
Each semester includes:
- 9 weekly 45-minute classes teaching a new song collection every fall, winter and spring.
- New CD and Songbook of the current collection (9 in all!), including 25 songs, illustrations, guitar chords/chart, and family activities.
- A Singalong Storybook of a featured song in the collection.
- Parent education resources and online resources.
