The Essential Music Together® Class

This is the essential Music Together class, one that a child can attend from birth through kindergarten—and through all nine song collections. This basic class follows the recommendations of child development researchers—grouping children of a variety of ages in one class. This approach fosters natural, family-style learning where younger children enjoy watching and imitating older ones; older children learn by leading younger ones, and adults are happy because the children in the family can go to class together. Each child participates at his or her own developmental level in singing, moving, chanting, listening, observing, or exploring musical instruments.

We welcome the whole family to join in this important family music experience and any caregiver—parents, grandparents, nanny—can bring the child(ren) to class.

Mixed Ages with Spanish

 

MUSIC TOGETHER WITH SPANISH

 “Learn a New Language and get a New Soul” (Czech Proverb). It is never too early to start learning a new language. Studies show that the cognitive benefits of learning and speaking a new language are innumerable. So, since music is one Universal Language, let’s sing and dance with Spanish!

During class, we will sing the songs in English followed by introducing Spanish words at an amount that is comfortable for the participants. You will receive a handout to familiarize yourself and practice at home. We will repeat these words and sentences in class progressively and learn the name of the instruments we use in Spanish, how to count, how to greet people, the name of the colors, some animals, etc.  Take advantage of the unique cognitive abilities your young child has and boost their brain with both Music and Spanish.
