All babies are born with the ability to play with music! As you may know, babies hear and respond to sound in the womb and, for most, their hearing is well developed at birth. While music is as basic a life skills as walking and talking, every child's development benefits from early exposure to music and movement. Because the early months are so important, Music Together offers two options for babies ages eight months and younger. Babies are always welcome to attend a Mixed Ages Class, whether registered on their own or attending free with an older brother or sister.
Parents with infants may also register for the special "Babies Class" which is offered as an 8-week, one-semester introduction to Music Together, after which babies will attend mixed-age classes. The music activities and materials are specially designed for parents who want to learn as much as possible about music development in babies. Explore ways to help your baby become a life-time music maker! Meet other parents of newborns and learn some fascinating music activities you can recreate at home with your baby.
Babies Class includes:
- 8 weekly, (summer is 7 weeks) 45-minute classes teaching a new song collection every fall, winter and spring.
- Professionally recorded CD with the songs, rhythm chants, "play-alongs," tonal and rhythm patterns used in class.
- Beautifully illustrated songbook with family activities to enjoy at home.
