Class designed for children birth through 5 fostering developmentally
appropriate, family-style learning. Adults and children participate at
their own level by singing, moving, chanting, listening and exploring
musical instruments. Class meets for 45 minutes once a week. Infants
under 12 months come free with a registered sibling. Song collections
change each semester.
The mixed-age format is not only
educationally sound but creates a family-like atmosphere where siblings
can attend class together. Older children learn from being in a
leadership role, while younger children benefit from the example of the
older child. Children of the same age are not necessarily in the same
stage of music development. A mixed-age format enables them to
participate freely and experience the music at their own level of
complexity, without being burdened by age-specific expectations.
