Early in life, music has tremendous power to support the developing child in all their growing capacities. Big Kids have minds of their own and they know what they like. They are ready to take ownership and lead musical activities with their peers. They want to dig deeper and understand how music works. That’s what these classes are all about.
Music Together® Big Kids™ is a 60-minute class geared to the interests and abilities of 5-, 6-, and 7-year-olds. The program blends the elements of Music Together® that parents and children love with new activities, skills, and challenges that are developmentally appropriate for this age group. Big Kids classes lay the foundation for Basic Music Literacy, complementing music instruction in school or instrument lessons, and leading to a lifetime of joyful music-making.
The curriculum includes Solfege, solos and ensembles, folk dances, harmony singing, vocal development, and drumming. In a safe, fun environment, your child can experiment with new activities like conducting and improvisation, story songs, and game songs. Parent attendance is welcome but not required.
Each family receives a Big Kids songbook, CD, Solfedge 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.
