appropriate curriculum that includes solfege, instrumental solos and ensembles,
choreography, harmony singing, vocal development, and drumming skills. The Big
Kids classroom is a safe,

participation is the hallmark of the Music Together program, but many children
of this age are ready for more independence in the classroom, so parent
attendance in each Big Kids class is welcome but not required (except for the
first class). You and your child will receive a songbook, CD, and HomePlay
activities so that the entire family can continue the fun and learning at home
and you can stay connected with what your child is learning in class.
Together Big Kids Classes
are 60 minutes long and meet weekly for ten weeks.
