Music Together Generations is a mixed-age music class with the sweetest twist: the addition of elder participants! In senior residential and day programs across the country, people of all ages come together to sing, dance, shake shakers, and swing scarves, including here in Wichita! At Riverside Music Together, these intergenerational classes are held with the sisters at the Adorers of the Blood of Christ.
As the children’s music-learning is nurtured, families also foster new and important relationships with the senior participants, who we call “Musical Grandfriends.” Seniors look forward to the children's lively visits and the chance to share memories and stories. The additional cognitive, physical, and emotional benefits for both children and elders make the Generations class a heartwarming win-win for everyone.
You'll value bringing this class into your child's foundational years. And if you haven't had much experience with older adults, you'll love what this class does for you, too!
"Our 1st session of Music Together was incredible. It gave me as a parent the tools to help my kids develop some music and vocabulary skills in a the little pockets of time in our busy day. The generations part of the class is also beautiful. My son picked out just the right drum stick to match the drum for one of our elderly friends. He was naturally thinking of others first with out prompting because that’s just what he has learned to do at the generations class."
