Jess Day of Midcoast Music Together, part of an international research-based early childhood music program, will offer a Babies Music Together class for parents and babies newborn to age eight months this spring at the Picker Family Resource Center. The eight-week class will be held on Friday mornings beginning May 3 from 11:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. A free demonstration class will be held on Friday, April 19, from 11:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.

Research has demonstrated that babies benefit greatly from early exposure to music. In a typical class, 12 babies and their parents or caregivers meet weekly for 45 minutes to experience new songs, chants, lullabies, movement activities and instrumental play; connect with other families with babies and learn about their babies’ development through music-making experiences. All participating families receive two Music Together CDs, an illustrated songbook and a baby parent guidebook to use at home.

RSVP for the demonstration or register for the class by visiting or calling instructor Jess Day at 593-6645.

The cost for this eight-week class is $115 (materials included). Payment plans are available upon request.
