Babies are welcome in all our classes! But if you would rather be with parents of other infants exclusively we have a one-semester Music Together® Babies Class created especially for families with infants under 12 months old. That’s right: It’s never too early to start our music classes!
Music-making is a basic life skill, just like walking or talking. Although simply listening to music has its place in a well-rounded music education, it doesn’t support learning in the same way that active music-making experiences do. In your Music Together class, you’ll explore ways to make music with and for your baby, giving them the support they need to become the music-maker they were born to be.
- Beginning Your Baby's Musical Journey
Your baby is a natural-born music-maker—cooing when you sing a nursery rhyme or wiggling when you dance to your favorite song. Even wee babies are alert to musical sounds and respond to melody and rhythm. In one of our classes, you’ll learn musical ways to interact and bond with your baby, support their brain development, and nurture their inner musician
How Do You Know Your Baby Is Ready?
Because they begin to hear and respond to sound in the womb, most babies’ sense of hearing is well developed at birth, and they are already alert to musical sounds—especially the voice of a parent singing! Just as your baby is prepared to learn language, they are equally prepared to learn music.
Soon after birth, your baby may cry, giggle, coo, and squeal with excitement—all of which help prepare them for expressing themselves musically someday. They’re receptive to music, too. Studies show that babies perceive differences in loudness and melody, respond to tempo changes, and sense when a song is ending. They often move physically when music starts or stops and may show a startle response when the music ends—even in their sleep!
- CLASS OPTIONS: They may attend a Mixed-age Class Or our Specialist Babies class on Sundays, Blackhawk 10.30- ten wks with teacher Courtney
Our music activities specifically designed to help you connect with your baby and support their music development.
Maybe you’ve noticed that your baby responds when you play a song in the car or sing to soothe him. Babies are naturally musical—and you don’t have to be a great singer or dancer yourself to nurture their love of music. In this music class for babies, your Music Together teacher will show you how you can support your baby’s music development through simple and fun activities. You’ll learn lots of musical ways to connect with your little one through music, and you’ll bond with the other new parents in your class, too.
