Mixed Age Music Classes

 

Each week in Music Together® Mixed-Age Classes at West Side Music Together, babies, toddlers, preschoolers, and the grownups who love them gather for 45 minutes of fun-filled family music time. Your teacher will guide you and the other families in music activities ranging from lullabies to full-on instrument jams along with lots of movement, dancing, and connecting with each other through song. It’s so much fun you won’t realize how much learning is taking place!

You’ll take home the award-winning music used in class, along with an illustrated songbook and other resources. As you discover new ways to play with music all week long, you’ll be supporting your child’s music-learning and overall development---even if you don’t think of yourself as a great singer or dancer.

Child development researchers discovered that grouping children of different ages in one class encourages natural, family-style learning, so Music Together developed the Mixed-Age Music Class. In this class, everyone participates at their own levels: babies vocalize, listen, and observe; toddlers play and experiment; and preschoolers build confidence as they emerge as classroom leaders. Grownups are happy because everyone can come to class together.

“Our experience with WSMT this past term has been truly transformative! It was our first experience with Music Together, and I can't believe how much it has immediately become a part of our everyday lives. :) My grandaughter, is so excited to come to music class every week. She loves the songs and actions, and she sings and dances to the songs with her big sister, and the whole family. It is so wonderful to be able to all share in this experience together.” ~ Jennifer, Vancouver BC

For Babies  

With Music Together, you can learn lots of musical ways to interact and bond with your new baby, while supporting her development in these important early years. Your baby’s musicality is just waiting to blossom, and now is the time to give it the loving care it needs. Your baby will engage at his own level, vocalizing, moving, listening, observing, and exploring musical instruments.

For Toddlers

When you bring the power of music into your toddler’s life with Music Together, you offer them a playful learning environment that is also immediately accessible. We provide children a wealth of musical experiences to share with the grownups who love them, as the adults learn to continue the play at home. With songs in a range of musical styles—lyrical to blues, world music to folk, along with fun and developmentally appropriate activities, your toddler receives a rich music experience that stimulates and supports their growing skills and understanding.

For Preschoolers 

Your preschooler has the chance to be a role model for younger children in our Mixed-age Class, which builds your child’s confidence and leadership skills. Different learning styles are embraced in a musically rich environment that welcomes a preschoolers' participation, however they choose to engage with it. Music Together stimulates and supports your three-, four-, or five-year-old's growing musical creativity, enthusiasm, and skills.
