Reach out to the seniors in the Austin Community and share the joys of music making with them by participating in a Music Together Intergenerational class. This is a mixed-age class (birth to 5) that takes place at an assisted living facility and includes the residents at the facility. These classes create a joyful connection among generations and engage the residents' minds and bodies. The classes are beneficial for staying mentally and physically alert and stir up cherished musical memories for the elderly participants. The classes also inspire the facility staff members to weave music into every day interactions with the elders. The classes help those Heartsong families who do not have grandparents in town by providing weekly interactions with the residents who become an extended family to our Heartsong families! Each weekly 45-minute class includes songs, chants, dancing, and instrument play. The residents are invited to sit in a circle around the Heartsong families and participate in any way they are able and to join in on the fun and music making.
Intergenerational classes are offered at a reduced tuition rate from our other classes which take place on-site at Heartsong Music. Tuition includes a beautiful songbook and CD from the current song collection.
In addition to receiving a songbook and one CD, enrolled families will receive a code to access Music Together's brand-new Family Music Zone. There, you'll be able to download the songs from the current song collection, in addition to exploring fun content created just for you. To access the Family Music Zone, parents will create an account at www.musictogether.com/account using the code found on the inside back cover of the CD booklet.
Please click on our Demo Scheduler or call us at 371-9506 to try out this class for free!
