We know screen time isn’t generally recommended for babies, but here’s the difference: YOU! We give you the tools so that you can engage and educate your baby, but the most imortant thing to your baby is YOUR active participation! Your teacher will be on the screen, but it is truly the interaction of the parent/caregiver with the child that is going to continue their music development! We will also give you lots of fun activities and ideas to do at home while we’re all looking for WHAT to do!
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?
Music Together Online is a package of online music experiences and resources that create a comprehensive music learning program with the high quality of the Music Together program. The Music Together Babies Class is for families with infants from birth through eight months and is a one-session introduction to Music Together and to early childhood music development. After this one semester, your family will enroll in a Mixed-age class. The music activities in a Babies Class are specifically designed to teach parents how to support music development in infancy and how to connect with their infants through music, using concepts like “purposeful touch,” “sound layering,” "dancing with baby," and “dancing for baby.” You will learn some fascinating musical activities that you can do with your baby at home.
The program includes:
Two, 30 minute prerecorded video classes with Becca Myers' class posted on Mondays and Vanessa Heilman's class posted on Thursdays. The video classes will be found on the Enrolled Families portion of our website. You will receive a passcode for your teacher's videos. You can watch them when it is best for your whole family. Becca and Vanessa are co-teaching the Babies Classes for the whole Spring Session: Becca on Mondays and Vanessa on Thursdays.
Your passcode will also allow you to watch any of our 8 teachers' prerecorded videos for Mixed-age Classes! So you will have access to unlimited classes each week, as long as we are doing Music Together Online! The Babies class is designed specifically for newborn babies through 8 months. The Mixed-age classes are for 0-5 year olds, so your baby can still gain a lot from the Mixed-age classes.
A designated webpage with additional videos including musical crafts, lullabies, song covers, parent education, and more.
Your Music Together song collection (songbook, CD, download code) will be mailed to you.
Access to videos from our very own Uncle Gerry, exclusively for enrolled families.
Downloadable family resources including valuable parent education messages for parents of infants, and other valuable dowloads from the Music Together Worldwide website.
DO WE GET MATERIALS TO TAKE HOME?
YES, we will be mailing your Maracas songbook, CD, and online code for downloading the music onto your devices.
