Developmentally Appropriate and Research Based
Both 10-week classes use the curriculum of Music Together, allowing children to experiment with rhythm and tone at their own developmental level. Because young children learn best through play, our teachers introduce basic rhythm and tonal skills through chants, sing-a-longs, instrument play, dance and creative movement in a non-performative environment. In the Big Kids Classes, the musical exercises reflect the growing ability levels of the children, and they are given more responsibility in creating their own songs and movements and taking turns leading the class.
Family Classes (9 months to 4 years with caregiver):
Sedona (Saturday 10:15-11AM)
Parents as Music Teachers
Musical skills can be taught by someone without an emotional tie to a young child, but attitudes toward an activity are best modeled by parents or close caregivers. Our teachers help guide parents in the Family Classes to become the main music teachers of their young children through interactive rhythm, movement and tonal play between parent and child. Parents and caregivers are still an important part of the Big Kids Classes are invited to sit in on two sessions and encouraged to use the CD and songbook at home to enhance their children’s class experience.
A Family Affair
Children love to play with the adults in their lives and our 45 minute Family Classes provide a regular time for a parents or caregivers to connect with their children. The songs and class activities become familiar family rituals making other daily activities, such as car rides, cooking dinner or bath time, opportunities to make music together.
A Wide Variety of Music
Three 10-week sessions are offered each year, and families receive a different Music Together CD and songbook for each session. The 9 different song collections expose children to a wide variety of musical styles, tempos, key signatures, rhythm patterns and languages.
