Class Descriptions

Show classes for:
MT mixed-age

Adults, regardless of musical ability, find it fun to create an environment that supports a child of any age in achieving basic music competence. Children of mixed ages participate by watching/hearing adult modeling of music-making, and eventually singing, moving and playing instruments at their own developmental level. Classes run for 9 weeks in fall winter and spring, 6 weeks in summer.

Babies Only

This is a Music Together® class especially for babies under 9 months. Class activities and flow similar to mixed-age classes, but with fewer standing activities and unique methods for parents and babies. Babies should be under 9 months at start of term to register for these classes.

Each class will include activities and games which teach about the layout and range of the piano keyboard, as well as movement, singing and percussion instrument play to allow children to continue their basic music development.
