Mixed-Age - Birth to 5
Our mixed-age classes give children a chance to learn from each other, and a chance to share their techniques as well. Mixed age classes give every child a chance to participate at a level that’s comfortable for them. Families love our mixed-age classes because siblings can play together in the same class, with all siblings benefiting from the experience. The Music Together curriculum is designed to meet the needs of a broad range of ages and abilities, from infancy through kindergarten making the mixed-age classes a true family music experience. Free Demo classes are held at the beginning of each session to allow parents and their littles to sample a real live class in action.

TuneBugz! Music Together offers two options for babies.
Rhythm Kids™ - Level 1 (4/5)
- Babies from birth are able to attend our Mixed-age class, whether registered on their own or attending free (up until 8 months) with an older brother or sister.
- Babies 8 months old and younger are eligible to first take our Babies Only class as a one-semester introduction to Music Together before they move into the mixed-age class. (This class cannot be repeated.) The music, activities and materials in Babies Only are specifically geared toward infant and baby development in the first 8 months of life and are really gearing your family up to join the mixed-age class with a deep and full grasp of the Music Together curriculum and how it applies to your baby's development. This one-time intro to Music Together class gives parents a clear understanding of how musical development unfolds in the very young and results in lots of smiles, coos and stimulation for babies - not to mention new friendships for Mom & Dad too!

For ages 4-5 (parent/child class) is an exciting drumming, music and movement class for pre-schoolers who are ready to the their next musical step. (ages 4-5 w/ parent or caregiver) Rhythm Kids 4-5 is geared for preschoolers who are ready to take their next music step. Each week we drum, sing, dance, play instruments and begin to play music-based games. Rhythm Kids 4-5 guides children toward developmentally appropriate music and movement activities, where they can begin to take charge, lead others, and be musically creative as they make up their own drumming patterns, invent new ways to play rhythm instruments, create movement ideas for songs and even take a drum solo! Families get a songbook, 2 CDs and access to the online Family Music Zone with great in-home ideas and videos.
Rhythm Kids™ - Level 2 (5-7)
Bring your child's favorite drum to class or hand drums can be provided in class but children must have access to a hand drum at home.
For ages 5-7 (drop off class) is an exciting drumming, music and movement class for children in kindergarten through second grade. Children attend class on their own and integrate and assimilate rhythm by learning multicultural drumming patterns, developing new repertoire on various percussion instruments, exploring movement and dance while singing songs and by playing games based on music and drumming. Families get a songbook, 2 CDs and access to online materials, drumming tutorials and video play-alongs. Students should have their own hand drum for use at home and for use in class whenever needed or desired. Parents/caregivers are welcome to stay and play or drop-off.
