We are SO excited to be planning our our 2022 classes!
We are currently taking Expressions of Interest for our 2022 classes.
We can't wait to make music again with you all soon!

MAKE MUSIC TOGETHER WITH YOUR BABY

For babies up to eight month … and the grownups who love them!

Your baby will learn through play and discovery …and by watching you and other role models around them?

-

Your little one is a natural-born music-maker, hardwired to start learning music at birth.

-

In our Babies only classes, you will be warmly welcomed in an environment that supports your baby’s natural musicality – and their overall development. You’ll learn lots of ways to communicate and interact musically plus how to recognise which of your baby’s behaviours are musical, so that you can support their development at the time when their brain is at its most receptive.

-

As you sing, dance, play and learn together, you’ll build lasting musical connections with your child and the other new parents in your class and will be given the tools and inspiration to bring musical creativity into your everyday lives.

-

The music activities and take home materials are specially designed for those of you who wish to learn as much as possible about music development in babies.

-

This is a one-session class, after which you and your baby may attend family classes.

This class is specifically for babies and their carers only. For those who wish to attend classes with babies and older children together, see Family classes.

FAQ

Infants range from only a few weeks to eight months in this program! Most infants in the Babies program are non-mobile for at least the beginning of the trimester. If your baby is crawling before the start of the trimester you may want to consider a family class.

The Babies class is structured in much the same way as a family class. In both classes your teacher will lead your through a variety of activities, facilitating joyful and creative ways for you to interact musically with your baby. The main difference lies in parent education. Because the infants are non-mobile, there is a calmer energy in this class which allows the teacher more opportunities to explain the 'whys' behind the 'whats' and to point out emerging musical behaviours.

The short answer to this is they are never too young to start music. Babies learn music the same way they learn language; by being immersed in it. Just as it is never too early to start talking to your baby, it is never too early to start singing with your baby.

 

The longer answer is that it is up to you as you know you and your baby better than anyone else. 

We offer a 100% happiness guarantee so, if after the 1st session you decide that you or your baby are not quite ready then let us know that day and you will not be charged for the trimester.

Classes have a family feel, rather than a school orientation, an environment your child will have ample opportunity to experience when he enters the world of formal education in a few years. In addition, children of the same age are not necessarily in the same stage of music development and a mixed-age environment creates a space for exploration and discovery, rather than peer pressure. The Music Together curriculum is designed to teach on many levels of complexity at once, and our teachers are trained in the art of mixed-age learning.

We have good news on that front! It doesn’t matter how well you sing or dance, it only matters that you do it. Your children don’t learn how to sing from you, they learn to sing. So, if you have fun playing with music, your child will learn to love it too. It’s really that simple! Your role is essential regardless of your musical ability!

The Rhythm Tree classes take place on the beautiful land of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin nations.
