Schedule A Make Up
This is the essential Music Together class, one that a child can attend from birth through age five. This basic class follows the recommendations of child development researchers—grouping children of a variety of ages because this fosters natural, family-style learning. Younger children enjoy watching and imitating older ones; older children learn by leading younger ones; and adults are happy because the children in the family can go to class together. Each child participates at his or her own level in singing, moving, chanting, listening, watching, or exploring musical instruments. Any caregivers—parents, grandparents, nanny—can bring the children. The whole family is welcome for this important family music experience.
Older Kids & Siblings Classes (4.5 - 7 years)
This class is for children ages 4.5 - 7 years (especially those with prior Music Together experience), and any younger siblings. Children this age are often ready for a class involving more independent singing, improvisation, and dramatic play. We utilize their expanded ability to focus on class activities and challenge the older kids to participate with more autonomy and leadership. Younger siblings are welcome and encouraged to register for this class as well, and you will be amazed to see the musical growth in your younger children when big sister/brother are the significant model. Please note - children ages 4.5 - 7 years are always welcome to register for a mixed ages class as well, and we see many older kids in all classes during the summer sessions. In the "Older Kids & Sibs" class, we ask the older kids to act as behavioral models for the younger siblings. Therefore, the mixed ages classes may be a better fit for older kids who are still developing their ability to focus for long stretches of time or are still working on not running in class.
Babies Classes (0-15 months)
For babies 15-months and younger, the music activities are specially designed for parents who want to learn as much as possible about music development in babies. Meet other parents of babies and learn some fascinating music activities you can recreate at home. Please note - babies this age also do really well in the Mixed Ages classes.
Bringing non-registered siblings to class
In the case of an occasional special situation where you would like to bring a non-registered sibling to class with you, please check with the teacher/director in advance and pay the $10 sibling fee payable to "Capital City Music Together". Cash or check payment must be made and given to the teacher on the day you attend. If you would like to bring a new family with you to try out a class, please ask them to schedule a trial class on the website.
