Music Together in Bozeman (with teacher, Music Kate) offers mixed-age kids music classes (infants to age 5) in two locations in Bozeman (West side and South Side). Children and the adults who love them will bond, musically, through music. These fun and educational classes involve singing, rhythm-making, creative movement, drumming, instrument play, creative improvisation and pure fun! The goal is give children (even at the youngest age) exposure to music in a relaxed educational environment that allows them to explore their musical selves while giving them a foundation for vocal and rhythmic competency that will last a lifetime.
“By emphasizing actual music experiences rather than concepts about music, Music Together introduces children to the pleasures of making music instead of passively receiving it from CDs or TV,” says Music Kate). Unlike other children’s music curriculums—which focus on funny lyrics sung in major keys—Music Together draws heavily from traditional American folk songs, includes songs in a variety of musical keys, and incorporates tunes in a range of languages and rhythms.
