The Mixed-Ages class is the essential Music Together® class, one that a child can attend from birth through kindergarten through all nine song collections. This class follows the recommendations of child development researchers—grouping children of a variety of mixed ages because this fosters natural, family-style learning. Each child participates at his or her own level in singing, moving, chanting, listening, watching, or exploring musical instruments. Any caregivers—parents, grandparents, nanny—can bring the children. The whole family is welcome.
