A little how-to on how to stream and/or download the Bongos collection this fall!
What a great article! Really gets at the heart of things!
“We also teach language through immersion, so let’s focus on creating an immersive experience in the language of music. Kids learn best when they’re part of communities filled with people of all skill levels for them to play along with, listen to music with, mess up with and just be silly with. Parents, this means you.”
Opinion | We’re Teaching Music to Kids All Wrong The problem isn’t getting instruments into students’ hands. It’s keeping them there.
Happy Autumn! Fall is now here officially, and we are settling in to our wonderful classes; looking forward to a fall filled with family, friends, music, and laughter. 🍂🍁
"I believe that formally teaching reading to preschoolers is a serious intrusion on natural mental growth. Only a few, who spontaneously, motivated by their own curiosity, teach themselves to read because they want to find out the meaning, are true early readers. Pushing others to call out words is a grossly oversimplified version of a complex intellectual feat. If we get children to “read” words before they have ideas, thought, and language to make reading interesting, we hand them a key to the door of an unfinished garden.”
- Dr. Jane Healy, Your Child's Growing Mind
Experts Agree! Really, Babies Don't Need To Read - Janet Lansbury I received this caring mom’s comment in response to How To Help Your Baby Become A Math Genius (Or Not): I am a mother of a 17 month old girl and I had her do the Baby Can Read program. I did this because I struggled with reading and vocabulary in school. My daughter has … Continued

I love giving a good pep talk to grown-ups in our classes the first day! I encourage our grownups to let down their inhibitions and sing and dancebecause they are their children’s musical role model! And oh boy, do we have fun in class!
Many parents have shared with us how important our Hello Song, "Hello Everybody", has become to them and how much the children love it. 🥰
We can safely say that the Hello Song is the most well-loved Music Together song all around the world!! 😱
One of the reasons for that is the ritual nature of it—we do it EVERY week, EVERY semester. We’ve found that making a ritual of it actually helps children transition into the class—it helps them settle in, so to speak. In fact, sometimes you’ll notice that your child may have trouble acclimating into the class if they’ve missed the Hello Song. So if you happen to be running late one week, try singing the Hello Song in the car en route—at least that way your child experiences that important ritual moment! 😍
🎵 Hello Everybody, we're so glad to see you! 🎵
We love creating community through music at our classes with Heart & Beat Music!

Registration is OPEN for our spring session!
Our 10-week spring session starts on March 25th. We offer the Music Together program: a developmentally-appropriate, play-based, community-building curriculum. Everything we do is based on research as to how kids actually learn...which is through play!
We offer classes for our littlest friends (age 0-9 months), a mixed-age family class (age 0-5), as well as a class for big kids (ages 4-8 years). Whatever it is your family needs, we got you covered!
Many of our classes sold out this winter, so sign up today to join in the fun!
Great article about why movement is so crucial to our littlest friends.
The magic of movement still really matters in our digital world - Maggie Dent Early homo sapiens had to move to survive and we are still biologically wired to follow the same drive, so technically we still need to be physically active to thrive. ...
So interesting. In Music Together classes, we are always developmentally appropriate. This means we do not expect your child to share! We have plenty of instruments so your child can focus all their attention on their favorite maraca/drum/egg shaker.
We are so very exited to be starting our winter session this Saturday, January 7th!
We offer the Music Together program and the Rhythm Kids program to families in Inwood, Riverdale, Woodlawn and Yonkers. What a gift it is to make music with you all!

Sunday HIR families: no class today (11/13)! I just sent you a message about it as well.
How many times have I had the conversation with other parents about kids loving the box the present came in?? The answer is: so many times.
Hahahahaha! Daylight Savings Time Confusion is real!
Good evening, families! If you are enrolled in fall classes, I just sent an email (check your promotions folder!) to announce that priority registration is open for our winter session.
What is priority registration, say you?? We give currently enrolled families first dibs on classes before we open up registration to everyone next week. In the email, you got a code in order to register.
We are doing a whole new set of songs (the Sticks collection, it's a good one!), so if you are sick of "Hey Lolly Lolly" and over "Tiny Tim", lol, good news...a whole new set of songs are on the way!!
Love this one!
I. Am. There.
There is a really great reason why we take our shoes off during class!
Take us back to 1979!! Which one of these graphics looks more like how a childhood should be?
It is still not too late to join one of our classes this fall! ￼ We have been having a wonderful time: singing together, dancing together, and making music together!
There are still some spots in some of our classes. We can prorate it for you so you are only paying for the classes you attend! Message me for a prorate coupon code.
Come see what all the fuss (and fun) is about!￼￼
“Look at the differences between a typical preschool child’s hand (left) and a typical 7 year old hand (right). Want to know why a preschool aged child isn’t able to write yet? This is why! Their hands are still developing and are not fully formed. So what should they be doing to support this? PLAY!! Playdough, colouring, cutting, gluing, playing outside, digging in dirt, sensory play, dress up play, science experiments, beading, puzzles, throwing balls, etc.
All of these things help their hands develop. When they are physically ready to write, they will! No need to rush them, they will show you when they are ready.” ❤️
via Raising Them Barefoot
We would add that manipulating age-appropriate musical instruments, like the ones we work with in our classes: egg shakers, maraquitas, jingle bells, resonator bells and mallets, can help little hands develop, too. 😊
We love our space at the Riverdale YM-YWHA! We still have some spots left in our Thursday 10am class with Siobhan. Join us!!
