About Our Program

We offer four sessions a year (fall, winter, spring and summer). Each session includes 10 weekly (except for Summer), 45-minute classes for child and parent/caregiver and include songs, rhythmic rhymes, movement, and instrument play. These activities are presented as informal, non-performance-oriented musical experiences developmentally appropriate for children and easy for parents and caregivers, regardless of their musical ability.

Mixed Ages

This is the essential Music Together, one for the youngest of babies through to 6 years-old and through all nine song collections. It’s a fun, non-pressurised class to support the strongest musical growth whilst building a musical foundation that is solid and based on enjoying music-making. The mixed-age class follows the recommendations of child development researchers by providing a developmentally appropriate teaching approach and grouping children of a variety of ages together to foster a natural and easy learning environment. You’ll see younger children enjoying themselves, watching and imitating older children and older children enjoying being the leaders. And, siblings can attend the same class with their caregivers: parents, nannies and grandparents can bring the children. Each child participates at their own level, singing, moving, using instruments, listening, watching and exploring.

 

Babies

Ideal for babies, newborns through to 9 months old, essentially before they start to crawl! (Babies are always welcome in the mixed-age class or if they are 8 months or younger they can take the special “Babies Class”.)

Newborns are alert to new sounds, different sounds, and movement. You may already have seen your newborn responding to music by wiggling their toes or opening their eyes wide. In the babies class we are supporting your babies' natural musicality and building their neural pathways, supporting your time with them as well as their own musical, social and emotional growth.Every child’s development benefits from early exposure to music and movement and this class is a one-semester introduction to Music Together. The activities and songbook are specifically designed for babies and aim to give the parents as much information and support as possible so that they can learn about their baby’s musical development. It’s a great opportunity to meet with other parents of newborns whilst learning many activities you can enjoy at home with your baby. Learn more about the babies class on the Music Together blog here.

 

Rhythm Kids

Rhythm Kids is the next step! Each week we drum, sing, dance, play rhythm instruments, and begin to play music-based games. Rhythm Kids guides children toward developmentally appropriate music and movement activities, where they can begin to take charge, lead others, and be musically creative, as they:

  • make up their own drumming patterns
  • invent new ways to play rhythm instruments (shakers, sticks, etc.) 
  • create movement ideas for songs
  • even take a drum solo!

Classes include:

• Songbook and CD each semester plus digital download code.

• Access to online drum-play videos and other material

Your child will:

• Explore the world of rhythm through movement, instrument play, and song

• Develop basic rhythm skills, like keeping beat, improvising, ensemble play, and soloing

• Learn to create, cooperate, and express themselves musically

 

Music Together con Espanol

This is just like your typical mixed ages class with the added benefit of a bilingual songbook and song recordings. It's an immersion in music and Spanish at the same time. Your teacher speaks English and Spanish fluently and combine their language and musical skills to take the first steps and build on previous knowledge of Spanish through the Music Together collection. For all families, it's Music Together con un giro - with a twist! Our class is taught by Lorena, one of our talented teachers and a native Spanish speaker.

Generations

"My children love music. We appreciate the warmth of the intergenerational setting. They especially loved the free-dance segment where they had a chance to meet and greet the residents. I like the idea of including intergenerational groups because children bring such a spark of sunshine even on the gloomiest of days to those who may not have young ones in their lives on a regular basis."  Angie, parent in intergenerational class. 

In our Generations classes people of all ages come together to sing, dance, shake shakers, and swing scarves during their weekly Music Together classes. Here, babies, toddlers, preschoolers, and their grown-ups foster new and important relationships with the "grandmas" and "grandpas." The classes are also greatly enjoyed by the seniors and staff, who look forward to the children's lively visits, the chance to share memories, and the sheer fun of these playful music-making experiences.
