About the Program
Babies are sounders and movers, born ready to make music, and they learn music in much the same way they learn language; by being immersed in it. Just as it is never too early to start talking to your baby, it is never too early to start singing with your baby. Our special Babies Class, for infants less than 8 months. is offered as a one-semester introduction to Music Together®. You'll learn lots of ways to interact musically with your infant, and as you sing, laugh, and learn together, you'll bond with your child and create connections with the other new parents in your class. The music activities and materials are specially designed for parents who want to learn as much as possible about music development in babies. Babies music be less than 7 months on the first day of class.
What age are the infants in a Babies Class?
Infants range from a few weeks to eight months in this program, but we find the average to be between 3 - 5 months. Most infants in the Babies classes are non-mobile for at least the beginning of the semester. If your baby is crawling before the start of the semester, you may want to consider a mixed-age class. Feel free to contact us to discuss.
My baby is under 8 months. Should I take a babies class or a mixed age class?
The Babies class is structured similarly to a mixed-age class. In both classes your teacher will lead you through a variety of activities, facilitating fun and creative ways for you to interact musically with your baby. The main difference lies in parent education. Because the infants are non-mobile in a Babies Class, there is a calmer energy which allows the teacher more opportunities to explain the ‘whys’ behind the ‘whats’ and to point out emerging musical behaviours.
