Music Together Babies 0 - 8 Mont

Music Together Babies 0 - 8 Months

TCU Music Together® Babies Class is designed for parents/caregivers and their children 8 months or younger. All children benefit developmentally from early exposure to music and movement.

Because the early months are so important, TCU Music Prep offers two options for babies. Children 4 months or younger may attend for free with an older sibling registered in a Mixed Ages Class. Children 8 months and younger may take a special one-semester Babies Class designed to introduce both parent and child to Music Together. (This class cannot be repeated).

Our Babies Class provides a safe and encouraging environment for parents to learn about the musical development of their infant. Music and activities in the class are designed with babies in mind, and families will have the opportunity to enjoy these musical activities at home. Classes meet for 45 minutes once a week for 12 weeks in the fall, 10 weeks in winter and spring, and 8 weeks in the summer. Class size is a minimum of five babies and a maximum of 12 babies.

Material Include:

  • One compact disc of songs that will be introduced in class
  • A songbook for parents

Music Together In-Person Mixed Ages 0 - 4 Years

This class is designed for parents/caregivers and their children. A child can attend from birth through age 5 developing musically as they experience nine different song collections with their families.

By grouping children of varying ages, along with their adult caregivers and teachers, each child will discover the joyful world of music in a family setting. This approach fosters natural, family-style learning where younger children enjoy watching and imitating older children and adults, and the older children learn by leading as examples for the younger children. Babies four months and younger may attend the Mixed Ages class for free with their registered older sibling.

Musical activities include singing, moving and dancing, chanting, listening, observing, and exploring instruments. Each child participates at his or her own developmental level. Every semester includes a new collection of music with a wide variety of musical styles that both children and parents can enjoy. Families enrolled in this class have the opportunity to share these musical activities at home. This 45-minute Mixed Ages class will meet once a week for 12 weeks in the fall, 10 weeks in winter and spring, and 8 weeks in the summer. Class size is a minimum of five children and a maximum of 12 children.

Materials include:

  • One compact disc of songs that will be introduced in class
  • A songbook for parents
