Music Together® Babies
birth to 9 months old at start of session
Your little one was born ready to learn! In this special class an expert teacher will guide and teach you how to support your child's music, physical, socio-emotional, language, and early brain development. You’ll strengthen your relationship with your baby by communicating in new ways - through music and movement! And with a community of other parents who are just as sleep-deprived as you, you’ll leave each class refreshed and inspired to sing your way through the day.
In addition to 8 in-person Babies classes, members of this class are invited to attend a Zoom class and will have access to a mixed age recorded class to use on demand. *In online classes there is no screen time for your little one. They’ll only be looking at and learning from YOU, their most important teacher.
