Music Together Generations™
Every day, in retirement homes, assisted living facilities, and adult day services centers, people of all ages come together to sing, dance, shake eggs, and swing scarves. With grandparents and great-grandparents making music alongside babies, toddlers, and preschoolers, the classes take on an even deeper meaning. “One of the things that stands out for me is the pleasure that parents get from watching their children form relationships with elders,” explains Devi Borton, Outreach Mentor at Music Together LLC. “So many of us are scattered from our families of origin, and we’re not in contact with our elders. Parents find this interaction deeply meaningful, and it’s also meaningful for the teachers to witness and facilitate those connections.”
Join Us for the Bells Song Collection this Winter!
This semester, you’ll learn twenty-five songs and activities, including a rousing new rendition of the American folksong, “Alabama Gal”—great for dancing with a partner even when you’re not at a hoe-down! Our version of this traditional tune features banjo, harmonica, and cajon (a Peruvian box drum). The Bells collection also includes Music Together favorites like “Me, You, and We,” which is often one of the first songs little ones learn to sing, “Trot Old Joe,” and “The Bells of Westminster.” In addition to your weekly classes, your tuition includes materials (including a beautifully illustrated songbook and a current song collection CD) for you to use at home, access to the online Family Music Zone®, and a family newsletter full of resources and music-making ideas.
