You and your infant will have a blast singing, moving, and jamming along to new songs during our 40-minute weekly LIVE online class. Family resources, including digital recordings, our award-winning Hello Everybody app, our beautiful songbook & CD, plus bonus online activities, will have you interacting musically with your baby whenever the mood strikes.
Music Together Online — Babies is a package of online music experiences and resources to strengthen your parent-child musical connection. The activities are specifically designed to teach you how to support music development in infancy and how to connect with your baby through music. The Babies Class uses the same song collections as our other classes, so you will experience a seamless transition as your baby grows into our mixed-age classes and beyond.
Wait...SCREEN TIME for my baby?
Your teacher's focus will be on you (the grownup), and your focus should be on your baby. This program is not about babies looking at screens! You’ll set yourself up so you see the teacher, and then you’ll make sure your baby can see you! You can lay your baby on a blanket or hold them on your lap, facing you. If your baby can see the screen, turn around so they're only looking at you!
My child is already sitting up or rolling over!
We know that screen time is not usually recommended for young children, but there's one thing that makes Music Together classes different from most other programs: you! When children stare passively at a screen, they don't take in information or learn in the same was as they do when a parent or other caregiver is actively participating with them. In Music Together Online Babies, just as in our in-person classes, you are still the most important musical role model for your infant, so you get to play, too! And your teacher will be giving you lots of ideas for fun activities with your child at home.
What if my child is sleeping during the Live Zoom class?
No problem! You’ll be able to access a recording from each week’s private Zoom class to watch when your baby is in his or her most “alert” time when learning best takes place.
Here’s what our package will include:
- One 40-minute private live Zoom class a week for 10 weeks with Miss Kirsten, limited to 12 families. We’ll open the Zoom space 10 minutes prior to class to settle in and to allow time to connect/interact with other parents, grandparents or caregivers.
- Throughout the semester, we will place a recorded version of your class in our private Family Portal, a great way to extend and apply techniques we use in the Babies class!
- Special Grandparents Day where the whole family can join in making music together!
- We’ll also be posting additional videos around a parent education point, as well as resources from Music Together Worldwide in our private Family Portal.
