MIXED-AGE CLASSES (0 to 5 years):
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. Our activities focus on adult/child interaction, where the adult is the musical role model for their child. This class is the basis for all Music Together classes, so if you have an infant, don't hesitate to take a Mixed Age Class if The Babies Only Class time doesn't work for you. All of our teachers have had specialized training in working with each age group within a mixed age setting; infants, toddlers, and 3-5 year-olds.
BABIES ONLY CLASS (0-8 months):
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 though we learn songs with words too. A great way to have fun with your new baby, learn how they learn, and meet other new parents. Class tuition includes 1 CD, MP3's of the music, a songbook, and 2 free make ups. Babies are always welcome in any mixed age class if the schedule of the Babies Only Class doesn't work for you. This class will be taught Thursdays at 11 am with Jessie White in Ft. Greene

- We know these early years with your babies, toddlers/preschoolers go fast, and love getting a chance to be a part of their special early years! We feel very blessed to be able to offer these classes that not only teach music and enhance all learning, but also foster special weekly play time that is all about your little one's self expression, joy, and blossing musicality!
- We are flexible (Please know that we are flexible in switching your child to a new day/time if the need arises, we know how nap times change!).
- Make-ups: We offer two free make ups which can be scheduled before or after your missed class so whether you plan in advance for that class you will miss due to going on a trip, or if you have to cancel last minute due to an unexpected illness, you can make it up!
