Canta Y Baila Conmigo - ONLINE

Real Music. Real Language. Real Learning.

Canta y Baila Conmigo® is a Spanish language and culture program with dual, complementary goals of music development and Spanish acquisition. It is both a music class in Spanish and a family language immersion experience.  CyBC introduces the Spanish language through the musical traditions of Spanish-speaking countries.

What makes Canta y Baila Conmigo different?

Many programs teach vocabulary using songs.  We pride ourselves in teaching language through music. We take music education seriously, and we present it in the context of language immersion. Children and adults learn language naturally and organically through the music activities, song lyrics, and the interactions in class.

Language learning through immersion is natural and ongoing, so our collections are not sequential. Basic key vocabulary is used and repeated every semester. Each collection also adds themes and special concepts that enrich language learning no matter which semester you join the class.

In Person & Online Mixed Age Classes

In Person & Online Mixed-Age Music Classes for Kids
Babies through 5 years- (In person = Meet outside)

The cornerstone of the Music Together® program is our Mixed-Age music class, for children from birth through age 5—and the grownups who love them!Gathering babies, toddlers, and preschoolers together makeseach class fun for all. There are lots of group activities for kids out there,                     
but Music Together offers a true family music class for the youngest infant to the oldest great-grandparent, and everyone in between.
 Imagine an extended family with a dozen or more kids and a bunch of caring adults,
and you'll get the idea!

Each week, a trained Music Together teacher leads the class in singing,dancing, and playing songs that range from tender lullabies to boisterousjams using child-friendly percussion instruments. Our award-winning music,
illustrated songbook, and other print and online resources will help you continue the music-making fun at home and nurture your child’s musical growth—even if you don't think of yourself as a great singer or dancer.  Like parenting, making music requires no previous experience or expertise, just a willingness to get down on the floor and get silly with your child!

The Rationale for Mixed-Age Classes

Music Together was the first early childhood music program to offer music classes for mixed ages. Child development researchers have known for a long time that the natural, family-style environment of mixed-age classes is the best way for young children to learn. In our experience, it works! In Mixed-Age classes, the older children love to show what they know, and the younger ones love to watch and imitate. The relaxed, no-pressure environment lets all kids learn at their own pace.
