Canta y Baila Conmigo® (CYBC) (Birth - 5 yrs)
NEW OFFERING - CANTA Y BAILA CONMIGO (CyBC). Canta y Baila Conmigo creates a playful, interactive atmosphere where language-learning is natural and organically integrated into the musical experience. CyBC appeals to a wide variety of families, from native and heritage Spanish speakers to brand new Spanish-learners. It is different from other early childhood language offers in that, rather than “teaching Spanish vocabulary through songs,” CyBC teaches the “Spanish language through music.” Because of the quality of the music experience, families come for the language and stay for the music.
Music Together® - Babies (0-8 months)
Special one-semester introductory class for infants 0-8 months. Every child's musical development benefits from early exposure to music and movement. Because the early years are so important, Music Together offers three options for babies:
Music Together - Mixed Age (Birth - 5 yrs)
- Infants may take this special Babies Class offered as a one-semester introduction to Music Together (this class may not be repeated). The music activities and materials are specially designed for parents who want to learn as much as possible about music development in infants. Meet other parents of newborns and learn some fascinating music activities you can recreate at home with your baby.
- Infants eight months and younger may register for a Mixed Age class,
- OR they may attend FREE with a registered sibling.
THIS IS THE ESSENTIAL MUSIC TOGETHER CLASS, one that a child can attend from birth through age five - and through all nine song collections. This basic class follows the recommendations of child development researchers - grouping children of a variety of ages because this fosters natural, family-style learning. Younger children enjoy watching and imitating older ones; older children learn by leading younger ones; and adults are happy because the children in the family can go to class together. Each child participates at his or her own level in singing, moving, chanting, listening, watching, or exploring musical instruments. Any caregivers - parents, grandparents, nanny - can bring the children. The whole family is welcome for this important family music experience.
Learn how to share the joys of music-making and the powerful benefits of having music in your young child's life. Each child's natural musicality is nurtured, & grownups learn together with their children. Our award-winning curriculum supports grownups to use our music & home materials to further engage children & experience the fun too!
Music Together - Masters (3-6 yrs)
FOR THE EXPERIENCED MT STUDENT AGES 3-6 YEARS. If your child is between 3 & 6 years old and has attended several semesters of Music Together, he or she may be ready for our Masters Class! Register your child for the same outstanding music with some different kinds of activities: rhythm improvisation, independent singing, dance improvisation, and dramatic play. Teachers work with individual skill levels and interests.
Please note: Because they are so used to keeping up with their big brothers and sisters, younger siblings are welcome to register and attend along with their older sibling.

Special Needs (Birth - 8 yrs)
MUSIC IS IN EVERYONE. Our ears, our voices, our movements - these are all tools for self-expression that boost confidence and lay the foundation for music-learning and all learning. And they're all that children with special needs require in order to take part in Music Together.
While Music Together's Mixed-age Class is not therapeutic intervention, children with special needs, including physical, cognitive, or neurological impairments, are welcome and often thrive in Music Together Mixed-age Classes, with our "accept and include" philosophy, our understanding of developmentally appropriate practie, and our respect for different learning styles. Music Together has a board-certified music therapist on staff who helps teachers and center directors with adaptations as needed. Because it integrates the mind, body, and emotions, music can transform the lives of all children, including those with special needs. Your family is welcome!
