Music Together Big Kids® is a 60-minute class geared to the interests and abilities of 5, 6, and 7-year-olds. Like our mixed-age classes, the class is firmly rooted in playful enjoyment of music, but adds new more structured activities, skills, and challenges that are developmentally appropriate for this age group.
Big Kids classes are designed to be a developmentally-appropriate bridge between our mixed-age classes and formal instrumental instruction, leading to a lifetime of joyful music-making. Using his or her "first instrument" -- his or her voice and body -- your child will start developing the connection between the music they experience and more abstract musical concepts, leading to Basic Music Literacy. The curriculum includes solfège, solos and ensembles, folk dances, harmony singing, vocal development, and drumming. In a safe, fun, playful environment, your child can experiment with new activities like conducting and improvisation, story songs, and game songs.
Parent attendance is welcome but not required. If you do drop off your child, we ask that you return for the last 10 minutes of class. Each family receives a Big Kids songbook, CD, solfège cards, and HomePlay activities, so that the entire family can continue the fun and learning at home and parents can stay connected with what the child is learning in class.
