Mixed Age

Miss Ruth
St. David's Episcopal Church (location map)
Thursday, 10:00 AM
01/16/20 - 03/19/20 (10 weeks)


Class designed for children birth through 5 fostering developmentally appropriate, family-style learning. Adults and children participate at their own level by singing, moving, chanting, listening and exploring musical instruments. Class meets for 45 minutes once a week. Infants under 10 months come free with a registered sibling. Song collections change each semester.

The mixed-age format is not only educationally sound but creates a family-like atmosphere where siblings can attend class together. Older children learn from being in a leadership role, while younger children benefit from the example of the older child. Children of the same age are not necessarily in the same stage of music development. A mixed-age format enables them to participate freely and experience the music at their own level of complexity, without being burdened by age-specific expectations.
