Each week in Music Together® Mixed-Age Classes at Every Little Soul Music, 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!
Central to the Music Together Approach is that young children learn best from the powerful role model of parents/caregivers who are actively making music. This is much easier than you think and we can show you how to support your child's musical development. Siblings can attend this family class together and any caregiver may bring the child to class.
The Music Together curriculum brings families together by providing a rich musical environment in the classroom and by facilitating family participation in spontaneous musical activity at home within the context of daily life. Music learning enhances the natural love of music in a child, but also their overall development.
