Mixed age classes are bases on the concept of  "family music".  this teaching model is based on research showing that young children thrive and learn best when interacting with children of different ages.  The mixed-age class mimics a family enviroment in which the youngest children watch, imitate, and learn form the older children, while older children develop imoportant social and leadership skills. Parents are an integral part of the music experiences both in class and at home.  Our classes focus on encouraging families to participate in music in a playful atmosphere without pressure to perform. We honor children's diverse learning styles and temperaments and we encourage participation by accepting and including their spontaneous responses.  We also understand how important movement is when it comes to music learning - sitting is not required!

older sibblings are welcome to attend and participate.  Enjoy making music as a family, no babysitter needed!
