What is a Music Together class like ?…..
Music Together classes are fun for adults and children! Twelve children ages birth through five and their parents or caregivers sit in the circle and participate in music making activities, led by a teacher. These include singing, rhythmic chants, small and large movement activities, and instrumental jam sessions. The teacher helps adults understand how to interact and play musically with their child in class and at home.
Our goal is to nurture your child’s natural enthusiasm for music and movement. We sing, dance, chant and play instruments in an informal setting that allows children to develop at their own pace. We also educate parents/caregivers, who acting as models in the class, learn how to encourage their child’s musical growth. This is a non-performance orientated program which emphasizes the learning process, rather than the product.
Each class has ritual features which the children need and enjoy - the Hello song, an instrumental play-along, a lullaby and goodbye song. Eight to ten other experiences are included in each class, ranging from free movement to rhythmic chants in unusual meters.
In a Music Together class, we trust and respect each child’s unique learning style. Some will simply stare and “study” the experience; others wander around the room exploring the space and checking in visually with the adult who brought them. Then there are those who sing, play and dance freely. Whether they participate or not, all children absorb and experience a community of families making music. They display what they have learned when and where they feel comfortable, at home, in the car, etc. As they become more familiar with the songs and chants from the song books, tape and CD they take home, parents observe many more musical behaviors from their children.
