For infants newborn to 8 months, as an introduction to Music Together®.
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-age 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 a one-semester introduction to Music Together, after which babies will attend mixed-age classes.
The Babies class is structured similarly to a mixed-age class. In both classes your teacher will lead you through a variety of activities, facilitating fun and creative ways for you to interact musically with your baby. The main difference lies in parent education. Because the infants are non-mobile, there is a calmer energy in this class which allows the teacher more opportunities to explain the ‘whys’ behind the ‘whats’ and to point out emerging musical behaviours.
