All four of our children had large doses of the Music Together program as babies and toddlers. We whole-heartedly endorse the classes, teachers, instruments, and soundtracks (that you'll hear over and over and over until the first one breaks and you're glad they gave you a back up copy).
But don't take our word for it, take it for a test drive.
Join an established class or schedule a trial run. Much more information about locations, teachers, philosophy at EastBayMusicTogether.com. The fall session is underway. The next mini session will begin around the holidays.
We like the basic Music Together mixed age offering best for the ages one to two, but there are classes offered for the barely sitting (babies!) all the way up through competently playing instruments. There is also a sibling discount available. Read Whitney's love letter to Music Together on rookiemoms.com.
New this fall: Big Kid Classes! Big Kid classes are for ages 5 to 7 and are 60 minute long (drop off!) classes. See the full schedule of locations and levels.
