ENROLLMENT FOR SPRING IS NOW OPEN!
Join us for the Tambourine Song Collection this Spring!
You and your child will ride on the “Old Brass Wagon” and “Merry-Go-Round,” enjoy improvisation with “Tricks with Sticks,” explore rounds with the springy “Round Robin,” and move to the klezmer-style Hasidic song, “Wedding Dance” -to mention just a few of the twenty-five songs in the collection. Your tuition includes materials for you to use at home, online access to the curriculum and support materials through the new Music Together app and Family Music Zone, and a family newsletter full of resources and music-making ideas. Continue your musical journey with your child, or get started this semester. It is never too late to begin enjoying music as a family!
Music Together® (Ages Birth-5)
Music Together is an internationally recognized early childhood music program for babies, toddlers, preschoolers, kindergarteners, and the adults who love them. First offered to the public in 1987, it pioneered the concept of a research-based, developmentally appropriate early childhood music curriculum that strongly emphasizes and facilitates adult involvement.
Music Together classes are based on the recognition that all children are musical. All children can learn to sing in tune, keep a beat, and participate with confidence in the music of our culture, provided that their early environment supports such learning.
BIG KIDS® CLASSES (Ages 5-7) BigKids Press Release
Music Together Big Kids® is a 60-minute class geared to the interests and abilities of 5-, 6-, and 7-year-olds. The program blends the elements of Music Together that parents and children love with new activities, skills, and challenges that are developmentally appropriate for this age group.
Big Kids classes lay the foundation for Basic Music Literacy, complementing music instruction in school or instrument lessons, and leading to a lifetime of joyful music-making. The curriculum includes solfège, solos and ensembles, folk dances, harmony singing, vocal development, and drumming. In a safe, fun environment, your child can experiment with new activities like conducting and improvisation, story songs, and game songs.
Parent attendance is welcome but not required. Each family receives a Big Kids songbook, CD, solfège cards, and HomePlay activities, so that the entire family can continue the fun and learning at home and parents can stay connected with what the child is learning in class.
