Join us for our 9-week Music Together® Winter Session featuring the Bells Collection!

Families will play with their voices by mimicking the sounds of instruments in French Folk Song and animals in De Colores. Making funny animal sounds, lip-burring and other tonal play helps children explore their vocal register, discover their singing voices and distinguish them from their speaking voices. We’ll also explore musical contrasts like staccato and legato with our full bodies in Hopping & Sliding and dance silly to Alabama Gal.

There are 25 songs to delight your family and in addition to your weekly classes, your tuition includes recordings, an illustrated songbook for you to use at home and access to the new Music Together app. Fill your family’s New Year with music, fun and friendship!

These mixed-age classes (0-4yrs) build on your child’s natural enthusiasm for music and movement, providing them with basic musical skills needed to enjoy social musical activities and discover their inner music-maker with their caregivers. With Music Together’s award-winning music and illustrated songbooks, you can continue the live music-making at home and nurture your child’s musical growth.

Did you know all children are born musical?

Every child can achieve basic music competence before age 5: to learn to sing in tune and dance accurately to a beat. This is achieved through parents and caregivers participating in class with model music-making for their children in class and at home, regardless of their own musical ability. Because music learning supports all learning, this active music-making creates unique connections in the brain that support your child’s language, social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development. 

Every collection of music is chosen based on the appropriateness of songs for families in a diverse and global community. All songs from the 12 collections are informed by the Music Together Song Advisory Board, a rotating panel of experts in ethnomusicology, music history, music education, and culture. With Music Together’s rich musical repertoire, children are immersed in different time signatures, meters, sounds, tonalities, and cultures.


Benefits of Mixed-Age Classes

Child development researchers have known for a long time that the natural, family-style environment of mixed-age classes is the best way for young children to learn.

Babies

Your baby is a natural-born music-maker—cooing when you sing to them or wiggling when you dance for them. Even wee babies are alert to musical sounds and respond to melody and rhythm. In these mixed-age classes, you’ll learn musical ways to interact and bond with your baby and nurture their inner musician.

Toddlers

Your always-curious toddler is starting to learn about the world and interact with grownups and other children in new (and often surprising) ways. Toddlers learn by watching others, playing, and experimenting. Mixed-age classes are perfectly aligned with this type of learning because they allow children to participate in their own way in a relaxed, family-style atmosphere.

Preschoolers

Your preschooler’s musical creativity, enthusiasm, and skills are growing by leaps and bounds! In our mixed-age classes, preschoolers are the class leaders and are encouraged to contribute their ideas and lead the younger children, who love to watch and imitate them. And because music learning supports all learning, your preschooler will also develop other skills they’ll need to succeed in school and life.
