How do you know if your child is ready to start JamAlong classes?

The readiness needed for the JamAlong class includes having some independence from parent and desiring more of that. Parents can drop off or watch through the window but it’s a peer experience. Children also need to have some experience listening to a teacher’s voice and following expected behavior, being respectful of other kids, and having the body control to sit in a circle and follow directions. We work on this in class as well but it is helpful for them to have had some introduction already. Then we can dive more readily into the musical games and activities.

Which class is best for your child?

Trying to decide which grade class is best for your child?  Especially those with fall birthdays? How would you answer these questions?

• Musically, has your child participated in a group music experience like Music Together?

• Physically, has your child taken any type of movement classes?

• Developmentally, consider your child’s attention span for an hour. Consider his or her ability to follow group directions.

• Socially, does your child tend to have more interest in being with children who are a bit younger or older than they are?
