This is the essential Music Together® class but with a very special twist! This is our family class that a child can attend from birth through age five with an adult caregiver BUT it is held in a senior living facility, allowing us to incorporate our "grand friends" into our class activities. Following the recommendations of child development researchers, children of a variety of ages are still grouped together in this mixed ages class setting. This approach fosters natural, family-style learning where each child participates at his or her own developmental level in singing, moving, chanting, listening, observing, or exploring musical instruments. We welcome the whole family to join in this important family music experience, and any caregiver—parents, grandparents, other relatives, babysitters, nannies—can bring the child(ren) to class. This will be a very special and meaningful class experience, we hope you will come join us!
