Each week in Music Together® Mixed-Age Classes Online at Ring-a-Ding Sing!, babies, toddlers, preschoolers, and the grownups who love them gather via zoom for 30 minutes of fun-filled family music time. Your teacher will lead you and the other families in music activities ranging from lullabies to full-on jam sessions. It’s so much fun you won’t realize how much learning is taking place!
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.
Why mixed ages?
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.
“My husband teases me because whenever I mention Music Together to anyone, he always pipes up my next line which is 'best money we ever spent.' I truly mean it. Kudos to Ken and Lili for a program that outshines any other I have seen around.” —Kim, Princeton, NJ
Concerned About Screen Time?
Never fear! As in our in-person classes, our goal is to empower and enable you to be your child's teacher! We encourage you to position the screen where only you can see it, so we can guide you, and you can take center stage engaging and bonding with your child. It's absolutely fine if your child isn't interested in watching the video or participating in the zoom. As long as you're participating and learning different ways to play with the music and integrate it into your life, your child will reap enormous benefits from the engagement with you and the music throughout the day. Our live zoom classes are shorter than our in-person classes, because research has shown that 30 minutes is the maximum amount of time your child should be able to focus while online. We will offer the shorter 15-minute pre-recorded sessions so that you have on-demand opportunities to enjoy the music throughout the week.
