Mixed Age Music Classes

So much more than a "mommy and me" class.

Each week at Blue Ridge Music Together babies, toddlers, preschoolers, and the grownups who love them gather for 45 minutes of fun-filled family music time. Your teacher will lead you and the other families in music activities ranging from lullabies to full-on jam sessions (with child-friendly instruments, of course). It’s so much fun you won’t realize how much learning is taking place!

You’ll take home the award-winning music used in class, along with an illustrated color songbook and other resources. As you discover new ways to play with music all week long, you’ll be supporting your child’s music-learning and overall development—even if you don’t think of yourself as a great singer or dancer.

Why Mixed Age? 

Child development researchers discovered that grouping children of different ages in one class encourages natural, family-style learning, so Music Together® developed the Mixed-Age Music Class. In this class, everyone participates at their own levels: babies vocalize, listen, and observe; toddlers play and experiment; and preschoolers build confidence as they emerge as classroom leaders. Grownups are happy because everyone can come to class together! 

“We have been in Blue Ridge Music Together classes for about 2 years now and they are absolutely fabulous! The twin boys are always singing, clapping and dancing, which I am sure has something to do with introducing Music Together to them as infants. There is nothing like listening to them as they are lying in bed, singing and clapping together. It is a great program and I would recommend it to anyone!”
