Our mixed age Family classes include children infant to age 5. This basic class follows the recommendations of child development researchers-grouping children of a variety of ages because this fosters natural, family-style learning. Younger children enjoy watching and imitating older ones; older children learn by leading younger ones; and adults are happy because the children in the family can go to class together. Each child participates at his or her own level in singing, moving, chanting, listening, watching, or exploring musical instruments. Experience new songs, chants, movement activities, and instrumental jam sessions. Both children and adults participate in the circle, led by a teacher with early childhood and musical skills. The whole family is welcome for this important family music experience.
