Our essential Music Together® family class, ages 0 - 5 years, follows the recommendations of child development researchers grouping children of a variety of ages because this fosters natural, family-style learning. In a class size of 12 children, younger children enjoy watching and imitating older ones, older children learn by leading younger ones while they practice and hone their new skills and adults are happy because the children in the family can go to class together.

The 45-minute class includes music experiences ranging from playful free-movement to instrumental jam sessions to songs and chants in unusual tonalities and meters as found in other cultures. Utilizing informal instruction, each child is allowed to participate at his or her own level, singing, moving, chanting, listening, watching, or exploring through natural play and music engagement.
