You and your infant will have a blast singing, moving, and jamming along to new songs during our 40-minute weekly live online class. And your family resources, including digital recordings, our award-winning Hello Everybody app, a pdf version of the songbook & CD, plus bonus online activities, will have you interacting musically with your baby whenever the mood strikes.
Music Together Online — Babies is a package of online music experiences and resources to strengthen your parent/child musical connection with the same high quality you're used to with the Music Together program.
Wait...SCREEN TIME for my baby?
Your teacher's focus will be on you (the grownup), and your focus should be on your baby. This program is not about babies looking at screens! You’ll set yourself up so you see the teacher, and then you’ll make sure your baby can see you! You can lay your baby on a blanket or hold them on your lap, facing you. If your baby can see the screen, turn around so they're only looking at you!
My child is already sitting up or rolling over! We know that screen time is not usually recommended for young children, but there's one thing that makes Music Together classes different from most other programs: you! When children stare passively at a screen, they don't take in information or learn in the same way as they do when a parent or other caregiver is actively participating with them. In Music Together Online-Babies, just as in our in-person classes, you are still the most important musical role model for your infant, so you get to play, too! And your teacher will be giving you lots of ideas for fun activities with your child at home.
What if my child is sleeping during the Live Zoom class?
No problem! You’ll receive the recording from each week’s private Zoom class to watch when your baby is in his or her most “alert” time when learning best takes place.
