Our core classes are for children from birth to five years of age through all nine collections. Classes are research based and structured so that children are able to learn in a relaxed non structured setting that is developmentally appropriate and thereby fosters natural family-style learning. This allows each child to participate in his own learning style and level through singing, movement, instrument play, chanting and exploring. .
Music Together Big Kids® classes are geared toward the interests and abilities of 5-6 and 7 year olds. Musical Together core class elements of natural learning are blended with more advanced activities, skills and challenges that are developmentally appropriate for this grouping of ages. Basic Music Literacy, which complements and enhances music learning and instrumental instruction in the schools is the center of the classes. This includes the use of solfege, solos, ensembles, folk dances, harmony singing, vocal development, dramatic play, improvisation and drumming. Parents are welcome to attend but are not required to and the class is limited to age 5 and 7 but older children attend. Families will receive a songbook, CDs, solfege cards and Home Play activities that can be shared at home.
