The subject matter of the songs range from the beauty of nature, plants, and animals, family life and silly songs, to the experience of city life with trains, taxis, and museum going. The range of minor, major, aeolian, and dorian melodies, as well as the varying rhythms of Music Together songs help make for some sophisticated listening that will interest both you and your child! Music Together songs are primarily in English, but each semester's new cd is bound to have a few Spanish songs, and oftentimes a song in an African language, French, or Yiddish.
We offer 10 weekly 45-minute classes (except the summers which run for 6 weeks). Together we explore music through songs, rhythmic rhymes, movement and instrument "play-along". The latest Music Together CD(two copies) and songbook are included!
Educators have long considered mixed-age groupings to foster beneficial learning skills. Our activities focus on adult/child interaction, where the adult is the musical role model for their child. This class is the basis for all Music Together classes, so if you have an infant or a 3-5 year old, don't hesitate to take this class if the ones below aren't offered at a time that is good for you. All of our teachers have had specialized training in working with each age group; infants, toddlers, and 3-5 year-olds.
They may be pre-verbal and pre-mobile, but they’re not pre-musical! A specially designed one-semester introduction to music for our youngest music-makers.
