For the 5-7 year old at Community School of the Arts!

The Music Together® Big Kids class for children age 5-7 is the “next step” for children who have been in Music Together family classes, but it is also open to any child of this age who enjoys music.

Classes are 60-minutes long and prepare children for basic music literacy. They will include Music Together® features that families love, such as fun with singing and movement and the enjoyment that comes from making music with others. Big Kids classes will also introduce more sophisticated music and movement activities that are developmentally appropriate for this age group.

Parents will accompany children to the first and final classes of each 10-week session, and “check in” the last 10 minutes of class during other weeks.

Each semester is a different curriculum with different activities, so students may re-enroll for as many Big Kids semesters as desired between the ages of 5 and 7. Families with multiple children enrolled in a Big Kids class can enroll the sibling for a reduced tuition rate.

While Big Kids continues the Music Together® philosophy as an experiential, non-performance approach to music, each class is planned to allow for the following learning outcomes:

  • Concentration
  • Pitch discrimination
  • Rhythmic accuracy
  • Development of singing voice
  • Hearing and using basic harmony
  • Awareness of musical form
  • Improvisation
  • Dance
  • Playing instruments in group activities

Experienced teacher Jenny Campagna will teach all Big Kids classes.
