Music Together® Mixed Age Family Classes
Our essential Music Together® family class, ages 0 – 5 years, follows the recommendations of child development researchers grouping children of a variety of ages because this fosters natural, family-style learning. In a class size of 12 children, younger children enjoy watching and imitating older ones, older children learn by leading younger ones while they practice and hone their new skills and adults are happy because the children in the family can go to class together.

The 45-minute class includes music experiences ranging from playful free-movement to instrumental jam sessions to songs and chants in unusual tonalities and meters as found in other cultures. Utilizing informal instruction, each child is allowed to participate at his or her own level, singing, moving, chanting, listening, watching, or exploring through natural play and music engagement.

Music Together® Within Therapy
Music Together Within Therapy (MTWT) allows credentialed music therapists at Bang A Beat Music Therapy Centre to incorporate the musically rich and beautifully crafted song selections from Music Together® into small group neurologic music therapy sessions.

At Bang A Beat Music Therapy Centre, we believe that all of our clients are musical beings. Music is our birthright and one of the most natural ways to express oneself. By combining the philosophies of Music Together with our extensive education and training as Neurologic Music Therapists, we can help make Music Together easily accessible to all clients regardless of ability. In our small MTWT groups (maximum 4 registered children plus siblings) families will have the opportunity to make music together with their children.

Current MTWT Classes:

  • Social Skills Development: A strong emphasis is placed on helping group participants learn appropriate play and interaction skills.
  • Social Skills / Self-Regulation: In this class, group participants continue to expand their social interaction skills while also learning self-regulation techniques.
  • Language-Learning Through Song: A strong emphasis is placed on helping children with limited language abilities to further explore, develop and practice early language skills through singing sounds, syllables, and words.

Therapeutic Drum Circles
Research has proven that rhythm through drumming decreases stress and anxiety, boosts the immune system, speeds up physical healing, produces feelings of well-being and creates feelings of togetherness amongst its participants. Bang a Beat Music Therapy Centre facilitates drum circles for groups of 10 or more participants.  Although we do provide a variety of drums and hand-held percussive instruments to play, please feel free to bring your own drum or shaker! Come drum with us!
