We are happy to offer different experiences for you in our class selections! All of our classes provide opportunities for children to engage in music-learning through a rich variety of tonal and rhythmic activities, but differ in terms of the setting:
Music Together® Mixed-Ages classes provide the opportunity for children of differing ages to attend sing, play, and learn together. Ten weekly, 45-minute classes include songs, rhythmic chants, movement, and instrument play. Infants up to age five attend classes together with a parent or caregiver. All our activities are presented as informal, non-performance-oriented musical experiences. The curriculum is specifically designed for young children and encourages lots of parent/caregiver participation, regardless of musical ability. A CD and a beautifully illustrated songbook are included with registration. Plus, you can now download the Music Together App, and also have access to "Family Music Zone" on the MTLLC website, where you will be able to download the music, as well as access other content from the "Flute" collection!
Music Together Generations classes are held in a senior residential facility, and offer similar curriculum and activities as you'll find in mixed-age classes. "Grandmas" and "Grandpas" join our music circle and participate with all the families in making musical connections, and share in the joy of accepting and including many generations. Generations classes are truly special, and provide people of all ages with the opportunity to build community through music.
In addition, Ms. Kate will be teaching a "Strum and Sing" Ukulele class for ages 5 - 7 (older 4's will be considered). This 30-minute, 6-week session will focus on introductory uke skills, as well as learning to sing and play simple traditional songs. Special introductory rate is $120. Students will need to bring a uke to class each week. Please contact Kate for recommendations on where to purchase ukuleles.
