Music Play Date: Mixed-Age Trial
A Music Playdate is a trial of a Music Together Mixed-Age class and follows the recommendations of child development researchers—grouping children of a variety of ages because this fosters natural, family-style learning. Younger children enjoy watching and imitating older ones; older children learn by leading younger ones; and adults are happy because the children in the family can go to class together. Each child participates at his or her own level in singing, moving, chanting, listening, watching, or exploring musical instruments. Any caregivers—parents, grandparents, nanny—can bring the children. The whole family is welcome for this important family music experience. Music Playdates are free or low cost depending on location and will give you a chance to try out our wonderful Music Together class.
Music Together Mixed Ages
Music Together Mixed-age Classes
This is the essential Music Together class, one that a child can attend from birth to age five through all nine song collections. This basic class follows the recommendations of child development researchers—grouping children of a variety of ages because this fosters natural, family-style learning. Younger children enjoy watching and imitating older ones; older children learn by leading younger ones; and adults are happy because the children in the family can go to class together. Each child participates at his or her own level in singing, moving, chanting, listening, watching, or exploring musical instruments. Any caregivers—parents, grandparents, nanny—can bring the children. The whole family is welcome for this important family music experience.
Music Together Babies
Rhythm Kids Classes
Rhythm Kids classes for pre-K and early elementary students tap into how children this age are wired to learn, with djembe drumming, music games, animal rhythm stories, and lots of stomping-flying-climbing fun. In each weekly class, we drum, sing, move, and play to rhythms inspired by musical traditions around the world. As your child learns to think and create like a musician, they’ll also gain valuable skills they’ll take to the elementary school classroom (and beyond!): confidence, focus, leadership, cognitive flexibility, and more.
Rhythm Kids 1 (RK1) is 4-5 year olds
Rhythm Kids 2 (RK2) is 6-8 year olds
Babies need Music Together too! We have several options for babies and I suggest doing both if you can.
Our Music Together Lullaby Class or Lullaby Workshop has been designed for parents and caregivers of young children (non mobile children) 8 months old or younger and expectant parents to introduce you to the many ways in which lullabies are so important for children’s development. This class will also provide you with the chance to learn new lullabies and revisit familiar ones, and give you new ways to share these songs with your children and families. The Lullaby Series at the Rec Center is designed as a series of three once a month classes, but can be taken individually. The Lullaby Workshop is a little longer, but is only once every couple months.
2019 Promotion! Babies under 4 months old are free in our Mixed Age classes. This weekly option plus what you can learn in the lullaby class on how to interact musically with your child is the perfect set up for families with a new baby. If your child turns 4 months old during a Collection/semester, your semester will be pro-rated to receive the classes before they turn 4 months old for free.

Eversong Drum Along
Come join Eversong in a 30 minute class where we will drum and sing to some of our favorite songs! Bring your own drum. Eversong will have gathering drums to share and a few smaller drums if you don't own your own. We will learn about micro and macro beats and how to help your child to grow musically. For newborn to seven year old. Parent participation required.
Doodle Drums is an integrated, Mixed-Age music, art, and sensory class. We integrate these three wonderful activities into a fun, developmentally appropriate class for 1-4 year olds. This is the perfect class if you have a preschooler and an infant together. Many of the projects will work for both ages, but I will have infant options if they don't.
Preschool Art Class
This is a process art class for 3-4 year olds where we focus on the process of making art and introduce art concepts in a fun, age appropriate way. Although we might occasional end with a completed piece of art, the majority of our time will not be focused on a finished product, but developing the skills needed to inspire creativity and develop both fine and gross motor skills.
Infant and Toddler Sensory Class
Although our infants and toddlers may not be ready for an art class, there is much value in the sensory input that comes from art classes. The goal of the sensory class is to help kids develop the skills needed for the preschool age art classes in a fun, age appropriate way with age appropriate materials using sensory input. This class is for 2 years old and under, but the class may not be appropriate for infants 8 months and under depending on their stage of development. Please call or text Brandi at (918) 695-8112 with more questions regarding this class or message us on Facebook at Eversong Music.
