Music Together Mixed-Ages classes provide the opportunity for children of differing ages to attend sing, play, and learn together. Ten weekly, minute classes include songs, rhythmic chants, movement, and instrument play. Infants up to age five attend classes together with a parent or caregiver. All our activities are presented as informal, non-performance-oriented musical experiences. A CD and a beautifully illustrated songbook are included with registration. Plus, you can now download the Music Together App, and also have access to "Family Music Zone" on the MTLLC website, where you will be able to download the music, as well as access other content from the "Flute" collection! Generations classes are truly special, and provide people of all ages with the opportunity to build community through music. Toggle navigation.
