Class Descriptions

Show classes for:
Mixed- age

For children 0-5 years old. Weekly, 45-minute classes include songs, rhythmic chants, 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.

 

Child development researchers have found that grouping together children of varying ages fosters natural, family-style learning. Children—even babies!—are inspired and stimulated through interaction with peers of different ages: younger children watch and imitate older ones, older children lead younger ones, and adults are happy because their children are in class together. Your baby will engage at their own level, vocalizing, moving, listening, observing, and exploring musical instruments. And any or all of your child's caregivers—parents, grandparents, nannies—can come share in the experience, both in class and at home. The whole family is welcome!

  MP3,  CD, and Songbook are included!

Babies only (up to 8 months old)

For pre-crawling babies. They may be pre-verbal and pre-mobile, but they’re not pre-musical! A specially designed one-semester introduction to music for our youngest music-makers. Musical activities such as finger play, lap songs, and songs without words are emphasized in our classes (though we learn songs with words too). The class includes 2 CDs, a songbook, and 2 free make ups. A great way to have fun with your new baby, learn how they learn, and meet other new parents. Babies are also welcome in our mixed-age classes.
