MUSIC TOGETHER® classes present playful, musical activities that respect and support the unique learning styles of very young children. Infants, toddlers, preschoolers and their parents / caregivers participate at their own levels in family-style classes of mixed ages.
MUSIC TOGETHER is based on the premise that all children are musical and have the same innate ability to learn music as language. Our goal is to nurture the child's natural enthusiasm for music and movement. We sing, dance, chant and play instruments in an informal setting that will enrich their musical environment and guide them towards basic music competence and ultimately towards a lifetime of musical enjoyment. This is a non-performance oriented program that seeks to assist children in developing basic music competency during the critical learning period of early childhod.
GREAT THINGS ABOUT MUSIC TOGETHER
Informal instruction: Children may or may not participate as they choose and do so according to their developmental level. The class experience, reinforced by listening to CD's and parental involvement, stimulates learning at home through play.
Mixed Ages: Educators have long considered mixed age groupings to be beneficial. The Music Together program is designed with this in mind. Activities focus on adult / child interaction rather than child / child interactions, so children of different ages (siblings, for example) can enjoy classes together.
Infants: A child's music development benefits greatly from early exposure as a infant. Children who are 9 months or younger attend free with a registered sibling.
Location: Nativity Church at Ridge & Woodford Roads in Pleasant Ridge. The classes are in the Parish Center.
Class Size: 6 to 12 children (birth to age 5) with parent or caregiver.
