At Music and Movement of Newton featuring Music Together®
, young children and grownups share songs, chants, fingerplays, dancing, rhythmic rhymes, movement, and instrument play in a non-performance-oriented, community setting. Carefully researched, developmentally appropriate activities support and respect the music learning styles of very young children. Forty-five minute classes meet weekly for 10 weeks, with a terrific CD and songbook included each semester. The mixed-age format creates a family feeling, enables siblings to attend together, and gives every child the freedom to take part as he or she chooses, unburdened by age-specific expectations.
