Mixed Age Music Classes in Fairfield County

Each week in Music Together®® Mixed-Age Classes at Music Together of Fairfield County! Music Together, babies, toddlers, preschoolers, and the grownups who love them gather for 45 minutes of fun-filled family music time. Your teacher will lead you and the other families in music activities ranging from lullabies to full-on jam sessions (with child-friendly instruments, of course). It’s so much fun you won’t realize just how much learning is taking place! Children learn through play. And playing with music is what we do!

You’ll take home physical and digital access to recordings of the award-winning music used in class, along with an illustrated songbook and other resources. As you discover new ways to play with music all week long, you’ll be supporting your child’s music-learning and overall development---even if you don’t think of yourself as a great singer or dancer.

Why Mixed Ages?

Child development researchers discovered that grouping children of different ages in one class creates an environment of family-style learning where young children thrive. With this knowledge, Music Together pioneered the idea of a mixed-age music class for families almost 30 years ago. The model is still cutting-edge, as families discover how much richer the experience is than in a class that is segregated by age. In a mixed-age class, everyone is supported to participate at their own levels: babies vocalize, wiggle listen, and observe; toddlers actively play and experiment; and preschoolers build confidence as they emerge into classroom leaders. This mix of ages, stages and learning styles makes for a rich and supportive learning environment for everyone, including the grownups!

“My husband teases me because whenever I mention Music Together to anyone, he always pipes up my next line which is 'best money we ever spent.' I truly mean it. Kudos to Ken and Lili for a program that outshines any other I have seen around.” —Kim, Princeton, NJ
