Although most three to five year olds thrive in a mixed age environment, we do have another option for your family. (Discuss your child’s readiness for this class with the school directors.) In this family-style class, which still looks very much like a mixed-age class, you and your child may experience additional musical activities such as rhythm improvisation, independent singing, dance improvisation, and dramatic play. The Music Together approach has been integrated with great success into the preschool setting and we utilize our experience in that realm to inform our work in the parent/child ages 3-5 classroom. Teachers work with individual skill levels and interest.
Parents attend class with their children. Remember that you are the most important model and teacher for your child, especially during this crucial stage of primary music development. Parent participation and enjoyment is essential to the child's musical growth. The most important things you can model for your child are simply pleasure, interest, and the desire to participate in music activities!
Younger siblings are welcome to attend Music Together 3-5 with their older brothers and sisters.
