Why mixed ages?
Classic Music Together® classes are mixed age, newborn through 5 years old. Sometimes, parents wonder why newborn to 5 year olds are all in the same class. In a classic Music Together class, children learn ‘family style,’ in multiage – sometimes called mixed age – groups. We create a safe, joyful music-making environment where children can reap the benefits of a multiage class. Research shows that multiage classes work because they welcome and celebrate many levels of strengths, abilities and styles. Multiage classes promote pro-social behavior, and provide opportunities for older children to develop leadership skills.
If you are interested in doing an infant-only (newborn to 8 mos) or Music Together Big Kids™ class (ages 5-7) we will be happy to put you in touch with another center that offers those classes.
Is my child too young for music class?
All children are musical. We don’t wait until children show “talent” for language or walking before exposing them to speaking or walking. We immerse them from birth and they talk or walk when they are ready because of that immersion. They have listened to our conversations, have felt the movement of walking in our arms, and have watched us move around. The same thing happens with music. Immersing children in musical experiences and doing those experiences with them provide children with the opportunities to not just learn singing and rhythm, but to develop their own special way of expressing music through movement.
Babies respond in many ways to music, especially when you start singing. Watch as they stop their movements to stare or listen intently, kick, stretch, move their mouths or tongues in repetitive motions, move towards the music, bounce, coo, or smile. It’s one of those amazing moments in a parent’s life when they can see that their little baby actually is understanding and responsive to much more than we originally thought!
So in short, no – your child is not too young for music class! Babies are welcome as registered participants. If they are less than 8 months old at the start of the session and a sibling of a registered child, they may attend for free.
