Mixed Age Classes (Ages 0-5) Children attend from birth through age five in our mixed age classes. Younger children enjoy watching and imitating the older ones, while the older children learn by leading and modeling for the younger ones. This is a great opportunity for families with multiple children to attend class together. There are many styles of learning and each child participates at his or her own level through singing, moving, chanting, exploring instruments, listening, giggling and watching.
What Do We Do in Class? We sing, tap, bounce, and stomp; explore rhythm sticks, egg shakers, drums, and bells; and take the children along on a playful, musical adventure! Any caregivers- parents, grandparents, nanny, aunts, uncles- may bring the children.
A New Collection of Music Every Semester! When you take Music Together at Discover Music And Art, each semester you'll learn 25 new songs and activities that your family will enjoy in class and at home. Each family receives an illustrated songbook, 1 CD, a digital download and access to the Music Together app. You can be in the program for 3 years before repeating a collection of music!

Benefits for Babies
As a parent, you pay attention to every move your baby makes. Have you noticed their eyes light up when they hear a song? Do they start cooing and wiggling when you sing a nursery rhyme? Chances are you've seen glimpses of the music-maker inside—now it's up to you to bring it out to the fullest! When you sing in the car or dance in the living room, you are setting the model for your baby, who is listening and observing as you play with music. With Music Together, you can learn lots of musical ways to interact and bond with your new baby, supporting their development in these important early years.
Since babies are musical beings even before birth, it’s never too early to get started—even newborns are amazingly oriented to become music-makers. Because they begin to hear and respond to sound in the womb, most babies’ sense of hearing is well developed at birth, and they are already alert to musical sounds—especially the voice of a parent singing! Just as your baby is prepared to learn language, they are equally prepared to learn music.
Early in life, music has tremendous power to support the developing child in all their growing capacities. In addition to being enjoyable for its own sake, it forges unique connections in the brain, integrating mind, body, and emotions. It enhances a child’s language, cognitive, emotional, social, physical development as well as their learning habits and dispositions.
When you bring the power of music into your toddler’s life with Music Together, you offer them a playful learning environment that is also immediately accessible. We provide children a wealth of musical experiences to share with the grownups who love them, as the adults learn to continue the play at home. With songs in a range of musical styles—lyrical to blues, world music to folk, along with fun and developmentally appropriate activities, your toddler receives a rich music experience that stimulates and supports their growing skills and understanding.
In Music Together classes, your preschooler enters a musically rich environment that welcomes their participation, however they choose to engage with it. With songs in a range of musical styles from lyrical to blues and world music to folk, Music Together stimulates and supports your three-, four-, or five-year-old's growing musical creativity, enthusiasm, and skills.
When your child is young, music has tremendous power to enhance, not only their love of music and the joy it brings, but also their overall development. Just as music integrates mind, body, and emotions, Music Learning Supports All Learning®® and the Music Together curriculum will support your child in:
Music Learning and Development
Language Development and Emergent Literacy
Social and Emotional Development
Cognition and General Knowledge
Physical and Motor Development
Approaches to Learning
