Music Together - R10544

Toddlers learn by watching, playing and experimenting. Just imagine how much they could learn in a music class where children ages 5 and under all participate at their own levels - singing, moving, listening, observing, and exploring musical instruments in a welcoming and supportive environment. Child development researchers have found that grouping together children of varying ages fosters natural, family-style learning. Our mixed-age class allows children to grow musically while interacting socially and musically with their peers. Younger children enjoy watching and imitating older ones; older children learn by leading younger ones; and adults are happy because their children can go to class together.

Any or all of your child's caregivers (parents, grandparents, nannies, etc.) can come share in the experience, both in class and at home. The whole family is welcome!
