Juliana's Music Box Music Together® classes offer your family, and you, a chance to play, learn music, and learn about your child's development. Each week, I lead the class in songs and rhythm chants. The songs are presented through a variety of musical activities which incorporate:
• fun, playful, interactive ways to focus on tonal and rhythmic elements of music,
• rhythmic and creative movement exploring a wide spectrum of body motions put to music,
• instrument exploration. We use a wide variety of percussion instruments, egg shakers, drums, rhythm sticks, triangles, bells, tambourines, glockenspiels and resonator bells,
• many kinds of props, from giant silk scarves to balls,
• parent education

You may wonder if you can help your child musically, especially if you don't feel that you are musical yourself. Music Together® knows from working with thousands of families that the parents are the most important influence in the child's musical life.
If parents, regardless of your ability, have fun making music, your children will too. Your child is young now and in a state of constant amazement, with a natural curiosity for music.
A one semester introduction to Music Together® for the infant to crawler (0-9 months) and their parent/caregiver.
The music and activities are especially designed for parents who want to learn as much as possible about music development and want to provide a rich musical environment into daily life. It also has no older children dancing around, so is able to be a bit less raucous!
Birth through age 6
Mixed-ages classes are for children from birth through age five.
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.A child's musical development benefits greatly from watching and playing with kids of all age groups. 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.
