Our Regular Session/Non-Summer Classes:
While our Mixed-Age classes are completely appropriate for infants (we have had babies as young as newborns in our classes), we understand that some families would like to start their musical journey with their children in a class with other very young children.
The Music Together Babies class is a one-semester introduction to Music Together and to early childhood music development. After this one semester, families enroll in our Mixed-Age classes. The music activities in a Babies class are specifically designed to teach parents how to support music development in infancy and how to connect with their infants through music, using concepts like “purposeful touch,” “sound layering,” and “dancing for baby.” Babies classes use the same collection as Mixed-age classes, enabling a seamless transition for families and teachers between class programs. Babies under 8mos at sign-up may join!
We also offer a wonderful GENERATIONS CLASS. This is a regular mixed-age family class and the residents of The Village of The Heights are invited to join us in making music. You do NOT have to have a family member living at The Village to sign up for this class.
Our Mixed-Age classes are for kids ages birth to 5yo with at least one adult who loves them. We are a strong believer in mixed-age classes for many reason. First, mixed-age classes create an environment of learning from the whole family, and a group that supports and cares for one another. We often see older children mentoring or helping the younger children. This dynamic increases the older child’s level of independence and emotional intelligence for working with people of all ages, while increasing the younger child’s spirit of belonging. Older children also take on leadership roles in class: many want to "teach" part of a song, and are quick to offer up suggestions for ideas during a song.
