New parents and caregivers are invited to join us for interactive music classes designed uniquely for infants up to 8 months old. 

The one-semester Music Together® Babies class was created especially for families and New Parents Groups with infants under 8 months old. That's right: it's never too early to start your baby's musical journey! Babies are naturally musical --- and you don't have to be a great singer or dancer yourself to nurture their love of music. Music Learning Supports All Learning®, and in this class, your Music Together teacher will show you how you can support your baby's music and overall development through simple and fun activities. 

This is an online parent-child class, and your role as a participating parent is essential to developing your child's innate musical aptitude. Find out why -- and how -- as we explore the Music Together song collections together!

RHYTHM KIDS by Music Together® is the next musical step for your "bigger" child (ages 4‒7y) with a parent or caregiver. Each week we drum, sing, dance, play rhythm instruments, and play music-based games. Children are guided toward developmentally appropriate music and movement activities, where they can begin to take charge, lead others, and be musically creative. Each class our RHYTHM KIDS students will: 

  • Explore the world of rhythm through movement, instrument play, and song

  • Develop basic rhythm skills, like keeping beat, improvising, ensemble play, and soloing

  • Learn to create, cooperate, and express themselves musically

This is an online parent-child class, and your role as a participating parent is essential to developing your child's innate musical aptitude. Find out why -- and how -- as we explore the Music Together song collections together all year!

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.

This is an online parent-child class, and your role as a participating parent is essential to developing your child's innate musical aptitude. Find out why -- and how -- as we explore the Music Together song collections together all year!
