This is the next step in your child's musical education, one that a child can attend from ages five to seven years. Big Kids classes lay the foundation for Basic Music Literacy, complementing music instruction in school or instrument lessons, and leading to a lifetime of music-making. The curriculum includes solfège, solos and ensembles, folk dances, harmony singing, vocal development, and drumming. In a safe, fun environment, your child can experiment with new activities like conducting and improvisation, story songs, and game songs.

Music Together Big Kids® Classes:

  • Meet weekly for ten weeks for 60 minute classes, with three semesters per year. Since the program provides a cumulative learning sequence, a minimum of three semesters is recommended, with six or more preferred.

  • Younger children are not developmentally ready for the structure of a Big Kids class. To be eligible, your child needs to have turned 5 by the first day of class.

  • While this can be a "drop-off" class, you (or another caregiver) should plan to attend your child's first class. You may attend any and all classes if you wish. However, due to the structure of the Big Kids class, we cannot accommodate younger siblings (except for babies younger than eight months). You and any younger siblings are welcome and encouraged to join the last 10 minutes of every class.

  • Children don't have to be "graduates" of our mixed-age classes to enjoy this class. This class is open to all 5-7 year-olds, regardless of their previous musical experience.
