Music Together® Generations Classes Mixed-age class with Grandfriends
If you’ve ever wished for an extra set or two of grandparents, then we have a class for you! The Generations music class is a Mixed-Age Music Together class with the sweetest twist: the addition of senior participants. Kids and their grownups visit their “Musical Grandfriends” at a local retirement home or senior center and spend time making music as a large extended family.
These intergenerational music classes for seniors and children are popular retirement home activities because the fun songs and children’s liveliness and laughter help to brighten up everybody’s day. Making music together connects people in ways that few other activities can, and this type of class bridges the generations by helping seniors, staff, parents, and kids form new and satisfying relationships.
What is Music Together?
Music Together is an internationally recognized music program for children birth through age 5—and the grownups who love them. Parents, primary caregivers, early childhood professionals—everyone is involved in the educational process. First offered to the public in 1987, we've always been pioneers in the field of early childhood music with truly innovative, high-quality music education and outreach programs that redefine what Music Means. We're research-based, so we know our stuff and we're good at what we do. But we're also down to earth, accessible, and all about having a good time. It's a balance that makes us both serious and fun. What can we say? We're serious about having fun!!!
Harmony & Me Music offers the research-based, internationally acclaimed music program Music Together - the best music classes for babies, toddlers, preschoolers and the adults who love them. Music Together is the perfect mommy and me, daddy and me or a loved adult and me class for young children ages 0 to 5 years old.
for the Fiddle Song Collection this Fall!
You’ll learn twenty-five beloved Music Together songs and activities you can recreate at home. During the chant “Sounds of Fall” your child will be mesmerized as the class expresses the sound and movement of leaves falling and birds chirping and flying. In “Old King Cole” you will don the persona of the King, Queen, Prince, Princess, and Baby as you sing, drum, and fiddle together.
In addition to your weekly classes, your tuition includes recordings and materials for you to use at home, a family newsletter with more at-home music-making ideas, online access to the songs through the Hello Everybody app, and a family newsletter full of resources and music-making ideas. This semester, we will also be celebrating the International Day of Peace with a very special Music Together Around the World party and you are invited!
