Spring classes begin April 9.
We offer Music Together Classes at the Hootenanny Art House in Park Slope, as well as at Jaya Yoga East in Kensington, Alden Moves on Church Street and Third Root Community Center in Ditmas Park.
Our teachers are local musicians and parents who love jamming with kids and celebrating music and community. Music Together classes build on your child's natural enthusiasm for music and movement. The Music Together program is an internationally respected, research based program and will provide your child with the basic musical skills needed to enjoy school and social musical activities, and to study an instrument should he or she choose to do so.
Music Together is our essential Music 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.
