Our Programs

Music can have a huge impact on the life of a child, not only as an enjoyable activity, but as a stepping stone to intellectual and emotional development. So whether you have a baby, a toddler, or a big kid, Tot Music has a class for you! Descriptions for all of our programs appear below, and we urge you to contact us if you have any questions!

Show classes for:
Music Together®

 Music Together® is an innovative music program developed by the Center for Music in Young Children® specifically for infants through pre-school age children. In our 45 minute class, we provide opportunities for children to experiment with music through songs, movement, chants and instrument play, with the emphasis on the process (and fun!!) of creating music, rather than on performance. In addition, we provide some very special bonding time! Each of the song collections used in class includes a wide variety of musical styles, tonalities and rhythms to provide a rich environment for children and their care-givers to grow musically.

 

Music Together - Babies Class

Music Together - Babies Class is all the best of our mixed-age Music Together classes, but specially designed for babies! 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 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, using methods such as "purposeful touch," "sound-layering," "dancing for baby," etc. And since our Babies Class uses the same song collections as our other classes, you will experience a seamless transition as your baby grows into our mixed-age classes.

(Please note: because our Babies Class focuses on bringing music to non-mobile infants, we must ask that older siblings do not attend this class. If you have an older sibling, we encourage you to sign up for one of our mixed-age Music Together classes. Your older child will be involved and active, and your teacher will assist you in bringing musical learning to your infant. We find that infants gain a great deal by watching older children make music!)

 

Drum Class

 

Tot Music Drum Program is a drum class for children 4 to 6 years of age with adult (younger siblings welcome). Our 45 minute class will consist of rhythmic play and community drumming, with plenty of opportunity for singing and dancing, too! As with all our programs, music in class will draw from a variety of styles and cultures from around the world.
