What is Music Together®
Music together is a great program for infants and young children to be exposed to music and movement while having fun with their families and caregivers. The mixed ages class is a natural family enviornment that allows older children to show what they know to wide eyed observers and imitators. This relaxed no pressure enviornment allows kids to grow their musical ability at their own pace. It is critical that parents and caregivers participate in class and at home with music making regardless of their own music ability. Sign up for a demo class. Music and movement is extremely critical for your child's development and music together classes make it easier than ever to facilitate this growth.
Why choose Music Together®
Music Together classes are based on over 30 years of research in best practices for early childhood development. The mixed ages class is the cornerstone of the music together program. Everyone is encouraged to download the music together app, Hello Everybody and the music together singalong storybooks area big hit with our families. Because all children are musical, the music together program teaches that all children can learn basic music competancy, which is the ability to sing in tune and keep a beat.
Classes meet for 45 minutes for 10 classes a semester. Parents and caregivers participate in the musical circle with their littles providing a safe and nurturing enviornment to explore music and movement. Parents and children will continue learning the songs at home to become familiar with the song cycle.
Registration is $25. Classes are $235 a semester. Siblings are $175 with the exception of babies under 8 months and children over the age of 5 who are free. Parents will then have access to the family music zone.
Parents or caregivers are expected to particpate 100 percent of the time in the lesson to model the activity for their children. Children are learning even if they are just watching, they do not have to demonstrate any activity. It is developmentally appropriate for babies to stick the instruments in their mouth, rest assured that we sanitize all equipment after each class and there is no need to try to take instruments away from children unless they are not being safe. Children also do not need to be scolded if they leave their seating area or if they start to whine. If your child's behavior becomes a safety concern (throwing instruments, running quickly) and you need a bit of space there is another room that we offer to regroup.
I noticed my daughter was not improving and struggling with her lessons. When we moved our lessons to Sanoon Violin Academy, I saw a big improvement in my daughter's playing, which gave her a lot more confidence and motivation.
My teen daughter is very shy, but she loves playing so much that she will play for her family and friends. I love seeing my daughter come out of her shell.
My son really looks forward to coming to the group classes. They help keep him motivated to practice during the week.
