Newborns to age 5
This is the essential Music Together® class, one that a child can attend from birth through age four 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.
Babies (0 to 8mo)
Newborns to 8mo
A special “Mommy & Baby” class offered as a one-semester introduction to Music Together, designed for non-crawlers!
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 fascinating music activities you can recreate at home with your baby. Babies must be under eight months old on the first day of class. Most babies in this program range from 3-5 months at the start of the semester. We recommend infants older than seven months register for mixed-age classes.
Every child’s music development benefits from early exposure to music and movement. Because the early months are so important, Music Together offers two options for babies. Infants may attend a mixed-age class, whether registered on their own or attending free with an older sibling. They may also be registered for the Babies Class.
FREE DEMO! Babies Only (0 to 8mo)

The 45 minute demo classes will include lots of fun songs and musical activities. Also, we’ll explain our teaching philosophy, the value of parent participation, and the importance of music during first few years of life.

BIG KIDS Music Together (Ages 5 to 7yo)
Music Together Big Kids™ is a 60-minute class geared to the interests and abilities of 5-, 6-, and 7-year-olds. The program blends the elements of Music Together that parents and children love with new activities, skills, and challenges that are developmentally appropriate for this age group. Big Kids classes lay the foundation for Basic Music Literacy, complementing music instruction in school or instrument lessons, and leading to a lifetime of joyful music-making. The curriculum includes solfège, solos and ensembles, folk dances, harmony singing, vocal development, and drumming. In a safe, fun environment, your child can experiment with new activities like conducting and improvisation, story songs, and game songs. Parent attendance is welcome and not required (in every center). In the Music Together of Marblehead center, we require 3 attendances per parent (1st and last class, and one of the the other 7 classes).We should have one of the parents in every class. Each family receives a Big Kids songbook, CD, solfège cards, and HomePlay activities, so that the entire family can continue the fun and learning at home and parents can stay connected with what the child is learning in class. Younger siblings are NOT recommended to participate in this class due to a difference in the approach of activities and their age development.
