 MIXED-AGE CLASSES

This is the essential Music Together® class, one that a child can attend from birth to age five 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.

 

 

Music Together® Sing Shalom 

 

Sing Shalom classes introduce Jewish themes, holidays, and celebrate community and family through song, supporting parents and caregivers in introducing their children to a diverse, culturally rich Jewish heritage. Sing Shalom classes use the internationally recognized Music Together early childhood music education program for mixed ages, enriched with a carefully selected collection of familiar (and not-so familiar) Jewish songs from throughout the world.

 

You'll learn lots of ways to interact musically with your child, supporting their development, strengthening family relationships, and helping them connect with the Jewish music tradition. And best of all, it's fun for everyone!

 

Tuition includes the Music Together song collection materials (book, CD, download code) PLUS a parent song sheet and links to the new supplemental Jewish curriculum.

 

Music Together Sing Shalom classes are offered in partnership with The Jewish Education Project. Funding for this pilot initiative has been provided by UJA-Federation of New York.

Mixed Ages

 

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 in one class. This approach fosters natural, family-style learning where 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 developmental level in singing, moving, chanting, listening, observing, or exploring musical instruments. We welcome the whole family to join in this important family music experience and any caregiver—parents, grandparents, nanny—can bring the child(ren) to class.

Each semester includes:

  • 10 weekly 45-minute classes teaching a new song collection every fall, winter and spring. 
  • Families will receive 1 CD and 1 new songbook with access code each semester with the songs, rhythm chantes, "play-alongs", tonal and rhythm patterns used in class.
  • Beautifully illustrated songbook with family activities to enjoy at home.

Each semester features a collection of carefully selected folk classics, familiar children’s songs, and new adaptations of traditional songs and rhymes.
