Music Together® Generations Classes
The Generations music class is a Mixed-Age Music Together class with the sweetest twist: the addition of senior participants. Kids and their grownups visit their “Musical Grandfriends” at a local aged care facility and spend time making music as a large extended family.
These intergenerational music classes for seniors and children are popular with elders because the fun songs and children’s liveliness and laughter help to brighten up everybody’s day. Making music together connects people in ways that few other activities can, and this type of class bridges the generations by helping seniors, staff, parents, and kids form new and satisfying relationships.
Generations Music Together classes in Sunraysia are offered in collaboration with Hands Up Mallee. This partnership allows us to offer a number of fully funded enrolments to families who are experiencing financial need, or other access barriers.
