All children are musical.
All children can achieve basic music competence, defined as audiation, expressing meter with rhythmically accurate movements and tonality by singing in tune. This growth is best achieved in a playful enviroment which is developmentally appropriate, and non -performance oriented, which is musically rich! We all know that children learn through play.
Participation and modeling by the parents and caregivers is essential to a child's musical growth. Even if you don't sing too well, you are your child's most important teacher. The research shows that it doesn't matter if you can sing, only that your child is provided a musical environment that will grow his or her music aptitude. Music Together will do that , providing great "ear food" every week for your child.
Experience Music Together and find out how important--and how fun--your role can be! Then bring the music home each week with our anthology and CDs and play with your child all week long until we meet again.
Our Music Together classes build on your child's natural enthusiasm for music and movement. You and your child will experience a variety of tonalities and meters, many of which are not typical in our culture. You will experience modeling of improvisation and many opportunities for creative singing , playing and movement. But the focus is FUN! We will definitely fulfill our" silly quotient" every week.
Each child learns in their own style without pressure to sit still or perform! Children are free to safely move about or sit and sing depending on their needs at the time. Join us at a class near you and experience the wonder of Music Together!
