CCSA receives support for program at Haven for Hope

The CCSA has received a generous gift from the San Antonio Junior Forum in support of our Music Together program at Haven for Hope. The donation will secure new music instruments and equipment to be used in our weekly classes with the families and young children in residence. We are thrilled to accept this gift in support of our new and powerful initiative. Thank you SAJF!

About MT@H4H
We continue to receive fantastic feedback on our initiative at Haven for Hope. With a second full semester behind us, we are convinced that this program impacts the families in residence with a truly meaningful experience. The positive, nurturing and safe environment of our class enables parents to bond with their children and with each other. We know the great benefits of music and movement in the early life of a child – and we know our families have now found a few minutes each week of peace and joy.

Introducing Big Kids!

Your 5-7-year-old is developing quickly and exploring new activities, mastering new skills, and gaining independence. As a parent, you may be making choices about extracurricular activities that complement their new school experiences and support their growth—in music and in life. Our Music Together Big Kids program helps your child take the next step in music development by blending the elements of Music Together that parents and children love with new activities, skills, and challenges that are developmentally appropriate for 5-7-year-old children.

As you may know, Music Together mixed-age classes support the development of tonal and rhythm competency, family music making and the disposition to be life-long music makers for infants through 4-year-old children. Big Kids classes focus on Basic Music Literacy, laying the foundation for formal music instruction in school or in private instrument lessons, as well as a lifetime of joyful music making.

At Music Together with CCSA, we recognize your older child’s new capabilities and provide a developmentally appropriate curriculum that includes solfege, instrumental solos and ensembles, choreography, harmony singing, vocal development, and keyboard and drumming skills. The Big Kids classroom is a safe, familiar, fun environment where your child can experiment with new musical activities like conducting and improvisation, story songs, “silly operas,” and game songs.

Parent participation is the hallmark of the Music Together program, but many children of this age are ready for more independence in the classroom, so parent attendance in each Big Kids class is welcome but not required. You and your child will receive a songbook, CD, and HomePlay activities so that the entire family can continue the fun and learning at home and you can stay connected with what your child is learning in class.

Music Together Big Kids Classes

• Classes are 60 minutes long and meet weekly for ten weeks.

• During class, children learn musical skills and appreciation through a special Music Together curriculum developed just for 5-, and 6-year-olds. Every family enrolled in class receives a Music Together Big Kids edition songbook with activities specially created for 5–6-year-olds, two copies of the recording, and weekly HomePlay activity pages.

• Younger children are not developmentally ready for the structure of a Big Kids class. To be eligible, your child must have turned 5 by the first day of class.

• While this can be a “drop-off” class, you (or another caregiver) should plan to attend the first and last class of the semester. You may attend any and all classes if you wish. However, due to the structure of the Big Kids class, we cannot accommodate younger siblings (except for babies younger than eight months). You and any younger siblings are welcome and encouraged to join the last 10 minutes of every class.
