Plans to introduce this new class in early spring are temporarily on hold. Let us know if this class interests you and we’ll keep you informed.
In this early childhood music class children from birth through age 5 participate together with their parents and caregivers. Gathering babies, toddlers, and preschoolers together makes each class fun for all. Music Together provides a perfect foundation for a follow-on music class, a beginner ballet class, and/or instrumental music classes.
At Monmouth Academy of Ballet we are proud and delighted to offer this mixed-age music class developed by Music Together Worldwide®. For over 30 years their classes have introduced millions of children, parents, and teachers around the world to the joys of family music-making and the powerful benefits of having music in their lives. Take a look what Music Together has to say about the benefits of music for children
Our Music Together classes nurture each child’s natural musicality in a playful, musically rich learning environment. Siblings are able to enroll, encouraging family bonding and offering a richer social context for music learning. This research-based music class is designed to be non-formal and non-performance oriented, so your child can learn at his or her own pace, in a way that’s developmentally appropriate. Learn more about the Music Together Program.
Music Together® Classes
Each week in Music Together® Classes at Monmouth Academy of Ballet, babies, toddlers, preschoolers, and the grownups who love them gather for 45 minutes of fun-filled family music time. Miss Robin 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 how much learning is taking place!
Child development researchers discovered that grouping children of different ages in one class encourages natural, family-style learning, so Music Together developed the Mixed-Age Music Class. In this class, everyone participates at their own levels: babies vocalize, listen, and observe; toddlers play and experiment; and preschoolers build confidence as they emerge as classroom leaders. Grownups are happy because everyone can come to class together.
You’ll take home 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.
Tuition includes your weekly classes, professional recordings to take home (CD’s and download codes for the app), an illustrated songbook with activity suggestions and a family guide to understanding music development in children. Tuition for a 12-week semester is $265. Siblings over 12 months, $225 and siblings under 12 months are free.
Classes will be offered on a semester basis during the fall, winter and spring of each year. There are 10-12, 45 minute classes each semester. A 5-week summer session will also be offered.
