Which Class is Right for Your Child?

**Family Music for Preschoolers is a prerequisite for Family Music for Ages 4-7 for students ages 4-5. Students ages 6-7 may begin Family Music for Ages 4-7 at any time.*** 
All classes are rich with musical play and are designed to enlighten your child's understanding of fundamental rhythm and tonal patterns!  Class activities may be adapted to meet your child's unique personality, mood and eagerness for movement or stillness. Classes for Mixed Ages allow children age 1-5 to interact together in class. Activities may be adapted for different ages. Six and seven year olds may also enjoy participating in any of the classes with their younger siblings. Family Music for Ages 4-7 adds new layers onto all the concepts previously learned. In this class series, students begin to read and write rhythm notation, begin playing in ensembles, sing and echo more difficult patterns, and begin composing.

Class Materials

Materials enhance your child's musical experience in class! We recommend that both parent and child have a pair of rhythm sticks, a shaker/rattle, and a scarf. For a drum, you may use a pot or pan from the kitchen! The Glockenspiel will add to your child's desire for musical exploration, but is entirely optional for the first three levels. The glockenspiel is highly recommended for Family Music for Ages 4-7. The Resonator bars with their beautiful acoustic singing tone are a nice addition if you'd like, but are not necessary for giving your child the complete class experience. By purchasing a class bundle for your child's level, you will have all the recommended materials to start making music in class. Once you have your instruments, you will not need to buy them again for future class levels. 

How to Use Bonus Videos

Each class subscription comes with bonus videos. (Stay tuned! Bonus videos will be added to Family Music for Mixed Ages and Family Music for Ages 4-7). Bonus videos allow you to expand upon the material presented in the classes. For the babies bonus videos, extra lullabies will expand your repertoire of soothing sleepy time songs. Extra pattern videos expose your baby to more foundational elements of music. For the preschool bonus videos, extra song videos including rhythm and tonal patterns help make your child's musical foundation as strong as it can be. Your enthusiasm for pattern echoes is your child's ticket to success!  

Home Environment

Home is an amazing place for learning! Enjoy the freedom you have to use your space as you'd like. Be sure to clear the floor to make movement safe and fun for you and your child. Designating one area in your home as music class space will help you establish a routine and help you keep the instruments in one handy place for class time.  It is not entirely necessary for your child to see the screen while listening to and participating in class as you model class activities for your child. You are free to determine the best learning context for your child.
