Music Together® (Adult/Child)
Here are the classes currently available, taught by Amy Conley.
Music Together programs around the world offer a mixed-age, research-based, parent/caregiver-child class for infants, toddlers, preschoolers & kindergarten children. Songs, instrument play, rhythm chants, and movement activities taught in a creative yet structured setting. Music is learned through play, with activities that support and respect the unique learning styles of very young children. Music Together classes also nourish a family's efforts to create a rich and joyful musical environment at home, regardless of parents' musical abilities, with wonderful take-home materials. The program develops each child's innate potential to gain basic music competence (singing in tune with accurate rhythm) while fostering a love of music for life-long enjoyment and developing cognitive, emotional and motor skills.
