Music Together: Traditional Mixed Age Classes


Music Together is an internationally recognized early childhood music and movement program for babies, toddlers, preschoolers, kindergarteners and the grown-ups who love them. Music Together classes involve both children and parents or other caregivers in informal singing, chanting, moving, listening and instrument playing activities that are developmentally appropriate for very young children.

Music Together Generations™ Mixed Age Class- New this year!


In Music Together Generations classes, teachers and families foster meaningful musical relationships across the ages, as “Musical Grandfriends” join the music-making circle. The program follows a similar format to that of the Mixed-Age model, but is hosted at the Aging Resource Center in Centerra Park so that seniors affiliated with that organization can easily attend.  Expanding the class community in this way enriches the experience for families and supports new connections, both musical and interpersonal. This is an ideal way for returning families who have participated in the the Music Together curriculum for years, possibly with multiple siblings, to experience the program in an entirely new way!

How to Enroll:

  • Families who are interested in enrolling in the Generations: Mixed Age class should enroll via the UVMC website.

  • Seniors or “grandfriends” who are interested in enrolling in the Generations: Mixed Age class should enroll via the Aging Resource Center at (603) 653-3460

Rhythm Kids™ by Music Together Level 1 (A NEW program for our older preschoolers!)


Rhythm Kids™ is a dynamic music, movement, and drumming class that further develops Music Together’s vision to help children complete the pathway of early childhood music development from birth through age 8.  It is geared for preschoolers (ages 4-5) who may be ready to take their next musical step, with an emphasis on drumming and focused rhythmic development.  Through experimentation and music-based games, children begin to take charge, lead others, and be musically creative as they make up their own drumming patterns, invent new ways to play rhythm instruments, create movement ideas for songs, and even take a drum solo.  Similar to our Traditional Mixed Age Music Together classes, the Rhythm Kids program will be taught as a caregiver/child class, with adults playing an active role in each class.
