This is the essential Music Together® class, one that a child can attend from birth through age five through all nine song collections. This basic class follows the recommendations of child development researchers—grouping children of a variety of ages because this fosters natural, family-style learning. Younger children enjoy watching and imitating older ones; older children learn by leading younger ones; and adults are happy because the children in the family can go to class together. Each child participates at his or her own level in singing, moving, chanting, listening, watching, and when exploring musical instruments, free from age-specific expectations and comparisons. Any caregivers—parents, grandparents, nanny—can bring the children. The whole family is welcome for this important family music experience.
Each session features a new song collection and you will receive a copy of the illustrated songbook and 2 CDs as part of your tuition. In addition to the songbook and 2 CDs, enrolled families will receive a code to access Music Together's 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.

Generations Mixed Age Music Together
Reach out to the seniors in the Austin Community and share the joys of music making with them by participating in a Music Together Generations 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.
