Music Together®, an internationally-recognized music and movement program, engages early childhood music development for infant, toddler and preschool children and their parents and other primary caregivers through mixed-aged classes. It pioneered the concept of a research-based, developmentally-appropriate early childhood music curriculum that strongly emphasizes and facilitates adult involvement and, it's fun! The Music Together approach develops every child's birthright of basic music competence by encouraging the actual experiencing of music through playful activities rather than the learning of concepts or information about music. Instructor: Music Together® Staff.

Back by popular demand! Join The Alden for a creative (and de-stressing) Friday evening master class for families. Participants will learn the elements of Djembe Drumming from artist Kofi Dennis and then use those skills in a group drum circle.
This class is designed for those eight and up, and it is recommended that families participate together. Children under 14 must have a parent register with them.
Students at all levels are welcome. Create a narrative series of mixed media painted and collaged works in this four-session workshop. Each art work will begin with forms found in nature. How you define nature is open to each student. We will be using acrylic, patterned papers and various drawing materials. Students will be encouraged to work in “layered” compositions with mixed media materials-finding their own narrative content through color, line, shape, and various textural elements. Contemporary art history will also be a source of inspiration for this class.
Instructor: Sharon Fishel.
