Creativity, Connection and Community for People of all Ages through Music!
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.
