Informal fun - for babies through preschool

Our mixed-age classes create a family feel, and give children a chance to learn from – and teach – each other. Mixed age classes give every child a chance to participate at exactly the level that’s comfortable for them. And families love our mixed-age classes because siblings can play together in the same class. The Music Together® curriculum is designed to meet the needs of a broad range of ages and abilities.

Class description


Six to twelve children, their parents or caregivers, and class teacher gather in an informal circle to sing, play, enjoy movement games, and explore instruments together. The relaxed atmosphere helps everyone learn - children learn basic music skills, and grownups learn ways to share music fun with their children at home as well as in class. 


Children are free to participate, watch, or leave the circle and move around the room. We know that children who appear not to be paying attention are really learning in their own way, and will often repeat class activities perfectly once they're at home.

“I’m so glad you reiterate that it’s normal for children to quietly observe in class, then go home and sing and dance like crazy! If you didn’t tell us that, I’d have been thinking something was “wrong” with my child. Instead, I’m able to rejoice when I hear and see her “performing” new songs from class at home all the time.” - parent

Every class features a mix of songs, chants, rhythm and tonal play, movement games, and music exploration with simple musical instruments. Some activities are guided, and some feature free improvisation and exploration. Classes flow from quiet activities to all-out “shake-your-body” fun, and always end with a quiet lullaby and ritual goodbye song. Click to listen to some Music Together songs.

“I like how a lot of the class music is made by the adults, children and instruments and not having every song played on a CD player.” - parent 

"I am always doing what I cannot do, in order that I may learn how to do it.” - Pablo Picasso
