Music Together: Parent & Child
This is the essential Music Together® class, one that a child can attend from birth through age five. Based on the recommendations of child development researchers, this class groups children of a variety of ages, which fosters natural, family-style learning. Younger children enjoy watching and imitating older ones,; older children learn by leading younger ones, ; and adults enjoy having their whole family in class together. Each child participates at his or her own level in singing, moving, chanting, listening, watching, or exploring musical instruments. Any caregivers — parents, grandparents, nannies — can bring the children. The whole family is welcome for this important family music experience. 45-minute classes include songs, rhythmic rhymes, movement, and instrument play. These activities are presented as informal, non-performance-oriented musical experiences – –developmentally- appropriate for children and easy for parents and caregivers – regardless of their own musical ability. 2 CDs, a digital download of the CD, and Songbook are included! Classes are taught by Harmonious Horizons.
