The Gift of Music

Please accept our gift of 6 FREE Music Together classes, in collaboration with Horizon Education Alliance. Classes are forming now for parents and babies from newborn to 8 months old born or living in Elkhart County.

Did You Know?

Music and movement activity can improve parent-child bonding, language learning and increased brain function for your infant. Research shows that infants with these benefits are generally more confident, more emotionally stable, and when older they experience greater success in school.

Music Together® classes provide time and focus for nurturing the very important connections between you and your baby. Trained specialists lead these classes using music and movement to stimulate your baby’s development.

 


FREE Classes for You and Your Baby

Music Together babies classes will be offered in a session of 9 weekly meetings of 45 minutes each. Join us for singing, movement, and learning strategies to nurture your baby through music! Each participating family will receive a CD and informational pamphlet. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our classes will observe the following safety protocols:

  • Mask policy
    • All adults wear masks.
    • In accordance with state and campus guidelines, children over age 8 are required to wear masks. Children ages 4-7 are encouraged but not required to. Children ages 0-3 are not required to wear masks.
  • Family units will be seated together, distanced from other families as it’s possible.
  • In the event that in-person classes become impossible, classes will shift online.
  • Some classes may shift outside if the weather is nice! In accordance with the Goshen College Pandemic Task Force’s guidelines, masks will be optional outside.

Childcare Available

Childcare will be provided for older siblings during our Free Babies Classes. Please indicate on the registration form below whether any older children will be in need of childcare while you and your baby attend class, and include older children’s names and ages.
