You might be wondering what your newborn could possibly take away from a music class and how old they have to be before they can benefit. At Music Together®, we know it’s never too early to get babies started in class! Your little one is a natural-born music-maker, ready to start learning music at birth.
As in everything, you are your baby’s first and best teacher. But don’t get nervous! When you sing in the car and dance in the living room, you’re showing your baby how to make music and that making music is important to your family. That’s all your baby needs from you—musically, at least! (Food, clothing, and shelter are useful, too.)
In the Music Together Babies class, for infants from birth through 8 months, you’ll learn a lot of fun musical activities for babies. You’ll also learn to recognize which of your baby’s behaviors are musical so that you can support their development at the time when your baby’s brain is at its most receptive.
The Babies class has other benefits, too! Singing and dancing with your baby is a beautiful way for the two of you to bond. And making music with other parents of newborns is a great way to make new friends in your community who are as sleep deprived as you!
Meet Chelsea Galvin
Hi! I’m Chelsea Galvin, I’ve been a certified Music Together teacher since 2009, teaching in Queens, NY and most recently here in Rochester. I was born and raised in Rochester, was a theater major at SUNY New Paltz and lived in NYC for many years pursuing a career in the arts where I was a teaching artist at a local children’s theater company and a singer in a few bands. I moved to Los Angeles, received my Master’s degree from USC in childhood education and have been teaching in a general education elementary classroom since 2013, first in LA and then back here at home in Rochester. My husband and I have settled in West Irondequoit and we have a beautiful 5 year old daughter who also loves to sing!
Music Together is an AMAZING program that combines my love of singing and music with my love of education, which is why I decided to open Music Together Flower City. I’m so excited to sing with you, and go on this fun, playful and educational journey together!
