Big Kids

Heldeberg Music Together is now offering Music Together®® Big Kids Classes, a great next step in your child’s musical adventure.  These classes are designed for children ages 5 through 7 who have gone through the Music Together program, are too old to continue in the mixed-age classes and are ready for the next level.  In these classes, they will take the next step in readiness for music theory while continuing to have fun with many of the same songs that everyone has come to love.  Parents are only required to attend the first and last classes of each semester and the last 10 minutes of every class. 


Mixed-age

This is the main Music Together class and a precursor to the Music Together Big Kids® class. It is one that a child can attend from birth through age four through all nine song collections.

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. Any caregivers - parents, grandparents, nanny, aunts or uncles - can bring the children. It is fun for the whole family.

Guitar Class for Grownups Imagine the joy of playing music for your child while they dance, sing, and laugh. Our Guitar Class for Grownups was designed for parents and caregivers of children currently enrolled in Music Together. In this 60-minute class, you'll learn to play selected songs from the current song collection so you can make even MORE beautiful music at home. This class accommodates both beginners who have never held a guitar and those who already have some skill. You'll be playing Music Together songs in no time!

 

Can't get to your child's music class? Then this class is perfect for you!  This class provides a good way for you to do music at home with your child.  Learn to play guitar in a fun and relaxed environment while enjoying a night out with other parents of young children.  Participants receive a workbook and bring their own guitar, capo, and tuner. If you want to learn to play the Music Together songs your child loves, this is the class for you.

Mixed-age mini-session

This is a 3-week mini-session that uses songs from the award winning Family Favorites CD.  It is usually held the first three weeks in December.  This is a great way to try out a class and see if it's a good fit for you and your family.

Rhythm Kids Level 1

Rhythm Kids Level 1 is the next musical step for your preschool child (ages 4–5) with a parent or caregiver. Each week we drum, sing, dance, play rhythm instruments, and begin to play music-based games. Rhythm Kids Level 1 guides children toward developmentally appropriate music and movement activities, where they can 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 (shakers, sticks, etc.)
        • create movement ideas for songs
        • even take a drum solo!

Rhythm Kids Level 1 follows through on the Music Together® vision to help children complete the pathway of early childhood music development from birth through age eight.
Classes are for preschoolers ages 4–5 and include:

        • 10 weekly, 45-minute classes
        • Animal Collection Songbook and 2 CDs each semester
        • Access to online drum-play videos and other material

Your child will:

        • Explore the world of rhythm through movement, instrument play, and song
        • Develop basic rhythm skills, like keeping beat, improvising, ensemble play, and soloing
        • Learn to create, cooperate, and express themselves musically

Drums will be provided for each student and is included in your tuition.
