Music Together® Mixed Age classes are for children from birth through age 5 and their parent(s) or caregiver. The Music Together® award-winning curriculum is used in a playful, developmentally appropriate environment that utilizes singing, moving, playing instruments, and making music in a fun 45-minute class. This type of music-making is shown to enhance higher-order thinking skills in our children, supporting all learning and providing an opportunity for children to attain basic music competence before learning an instrument.
Please read the following Covid-19 protocols carefully. If none of our in-person options are appropriate for your family, we invite you to consider online learning options.
**For in-person, indoor classes: We request that only VACCINATED adults bring a child to class. All children ages 0-5 who are attending must be registered for the class. All children ages 3 and up must wear a mask for class. All participating adults must wear a mask.
For in-person, outdoor classes: Participants will be asked to maintain a distance of 4 to 6 feet apart during class. Masks/vaccines will not be required for outdoor classes. In case of inclement weather, classes will be held online via Zoom.
If you are not vaccinated or do not wish to share your vaccination status, please choose an outdoor class or an online class option. WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO AMEND OUR POLICIES AT A LATER DATE IF CDC OR STATE GUIDELINES REQUIRE IT.
Mixed Age classes are held at Crescendo Academy of Music, Winchell Third Christian Reformed Church (2400 Winchell Ave.), and the big red barn at 1700 N 5th Street, Kalamazoo.
In the Drum Song Collection, you’ll learn twenty-five beloved Music Together songs and activities you can recreate at home. Your little ones will love jumping and hiding in “John the Rabbit” and “Sneak and Peek.” You’ll all be mesmerized by the beautiful lullaby, “Arroró, mi niño” and enjoy the catchy rhythms of “Jim Jam Drummer.” In addition to ten weekly classes, tuition includes audio recordings to play at home and on the go, a colorfully illustrated family songbook, and resources with bonus music-making ideas to try at home.
