Child development researchers recommend
mixed-age groupings because they foster natural, family-style learning.
Younger children enjoy watching and imitating older ones: older
children learn by leading younger ones; and adults are happy because
the children in the family can go to class together. Each child
participates at his or her own level in singing, moving, chanting,
listening, watching or exploring musical instruments. The class
provides a variety of adult-child activities that are fun and offer new
ways to play musically at home. The whole family is welcome for this
essential family music experience!
