Each week in Music Together® Mixed-Age Classes at Music Together of Blackstone Valley, 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 how much learning is taking place!
You’ll take home 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 encourages natural, family-style learning, so Music Together developed the Mixed-Age Music Class. In this class, everyone participates at their own levels: babies vocalize, listen, and observe; toddlers play and experiment; and preschoolers build confidence as they emerge as classroom leaders. Grownups are happy because everyone can come to class together.
“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
What happens in a Music Together class?
Our class activities include singing, rhythmic chants, small and large movement and instrument play in an informal, developmentally appropriate setting that allows children and grownups to participate at their own pace. Our professionally trained educators will help adults understand how to interact and play musically with their child. This is a non-performance oriented program which emphasizes the learning process, rather than the product.
Music Together class can be attended from birth through age six, through all nine of our song collections. Following the recommendations of child development researchers, Music Together classes group children of a variety of ages because this fosters natural, family-style learning so bring the whole family for this important music experience.
