Bringing Harmony Home® with Music Together®...
- Did you know that all children are musical?
- Have you ever wondered what you can do to nurture the musical growth of your child, regardless of your own musical ability?
- Experience Music Together and find out how important--and how fun--your role can be!
- Our Music Together classes build on your child's natural enthusiasm for music and movement. We'll help you provide your child with the basic musical skills needed to enjoy school and social musical activities, and to study an instrument should he or she choose to do so.
What happens during class?
Ten to twelve families are led through a series of songs, dances and fingerplays by a trained teacher, who promotes the idea of learning music through play. You'll experience small movement/lap songs, large movement dancing and bouncing songs as well as percussive instrument play.
What is expected of my child?
Absolutely nothing! We don't expect the children to sit in the circle. They are free to move about and explore and participate (or not!) at their own pace and in their own way. We honor all learning styles. Very often children come to our classes and just sit and stare - but when they are home in their own environment, they sing and dance and wiggle like crazy! We encourage adults to just have fun with the music and to not worry that the children aren't doing what they "should." In fact, there are no shoulds in Music Together®!
What is expected of me?
We just expect the adults to have fun! We know that young children learn by watching and imitating the primary people in their lives. By singing and dancing joyfully, you're sending a clear message to your child that music is something that everyone can enjoy. It doesn't matter if you can sing in tune or dance with accuracy. It is the disposition for music making that is the special gift for your child. So we invite you to jump in to the music.
