Mixed Age Classes (0-5yrs)
Each week in Music Together® Mixed-Age Classes at Music Together with Sarah, babies, toddlers, preschoolers, and the grownups who love them gather for 45 minutes of fun-filled family music time. Your teacher will lead you and the other families in music activities ranging from lullabies to full-on jam sessions (with child-friendly instruments, of course). It’s so much fun you won’t realize just how much learning is taking place! Children learn through play. And playing with music is our JAM!
You’ll take home physical and digital access to recordings of the award-winning music used in class, along with an illustrated songbook and other resources. As you discover new ways to play with music all week long, you’ll be supporting your child’s music-learning and overall development---even if you don’t think of yourself as a great singer or dancer.
Why Mixed Ages?
Child development researchers discovered that grouping children of different ages in one class creates an environment of family-style learning where young children thrive. With this knowledge, Music Together pioneered the idea of a mixed-age music class for families almost 30 years ago. The model is still cutting-edge, as families discover how much richer the experience is than in a class that is segregated by age. In a mixed-age class, everyone is supported to participate at their own levels: babies vocalize, wiggle listen, and observe; toddlers actively play and experiment; and preschoolers build confidence as they emerge into classroom leaders. This mix of ages, stages and learning styles makes for a rich and supportive learning environment for everyone, including the grownups!

The one-term Music Together® Babies Class was created especially for families with infants who are not yet crawling. Babyhood is prime time for music learning. Like learning language, it’s never too early to start learning music!
Maybe you’ve noticed that your baby responds when you play a song in the car or sing to soothe him. Babies are naturally musical—and you don’t have to be a great singer or dancer yourself to nurture their love of music. In this music class for babies, your Music Together teacher will show you how you can support your baby’s music development through simple and fun activities. You’ll learn lots of musical ways to connect with your little one through music, and you’ll bond with the other new parents in your class, too.

Music Together Drumming Classes in Perth
In a Music Together Rhythm Kids class, 5-7-year-old kids learn signature world-music rhythms on their own djembe. Because music starts and stays grounded in movement and singing, Rhythm Kids incorporates movement and song inspired by a variety of genres to help older children expand their music "vocabulary" and help refine foundational music skill. Rhythm Kids is a great class on its own as well as a complement to piano lessons, dance classes, and elementary school music.
Each class is 45 minutes and gives you the option to drop your child off or stay and participate with them! The program is a natural next step after "graduating" from our mixed-age program but is also a great fit for families new to Music Together. The curriculum includes a focus on djembe drumming technique as well as fun brain-building music games, folk dances, harmony singing, vocal development, opportunities to build confidence in taking solos and being part of an ensemble, and of course, learning new songs from around the world. In Rhythm Kids, your child gets to learn in an environment that's developmentally appropriate and challenging, while building lasting friendships.
Each semester's song collection is a blend of new and familiar songs. Students get their own recording, songbook, and access to online video tutorials with Rhythm Kids Curriculum Co-Author, Tom Foote!
