Babies Class

 

A born sounder and mover, your baby is already equipped with the means and potential to make music. You've probably noticed how they respond when you play a song in the car or sing them a song to soothe them. Developing your baby's natural musicality will open the door to a world of possibility, not only for music learning but for all learning. The early months are so important to this process, which is why we designed this special class to help you every step of the way.

Music Together® offers a one-semester Babies Class for families with infants from birth through eight months of age. In this class, the activities are specifically designed to teach you how to support music development in infancy and how to connect with your baby through music. The Babies Class uses the same song collections as our other classes, so you will experience a seamless transition as your baby grows into our mixed-age classes and beyond.

How Do You Know Your Baby is Ready?

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.

Soon after birth, your baby may cry, giggle, coo, and squeal with excitement—all of which help prepare them for expressing themselves musically someday. They’re receptive to music, too. Studies show that babies perceive differences in loudness and melody, respond to tempo changes, and sense when a song is ending. They often move physically when music starts or stops and may show a startle response when the music ends—even in their sleep!
