AUBURN — Music Together, a research-based music and movement program for young children and their families, will be offered at the United Methodist Church on Park Avenue beginning Thursday, Sept. 17. Registrations are now being accepted for the classes, which will be offered at
9 a.m. Thursdays; 9 and 10:15 a.m. Fridays and 10 a.m. Saturdays.

Families are encouraged to attend class together, so younger children and older children in the same family can learn music and movement activities to enjoy at home.

In a Music Together class, 12 children and their parents or caregivers meet for 45 minutes each week for 10 weeks to experience new songs, chants, movement activities and instrumental jam sessions. Both adults and children sit in the circle and participate, led by a teacher with early childhood and music skills.

The teacher helps adults understand how to participate and the importance of relaxing and enjoying the activities with their children. Children have many opportunities to create and play making up rhythm patterns, movements and new words to songs.

Androscoggin Music Together is operated by registered Music Together teacher Caroline Coffin. An Auburn native and part of a musical family, Coffin has had a passion for music from a very young age. She is a talented singer, performing as a soloist and participating in ensembles throughout the state. She also led children’s music at her church for 12 years. Coffin, or Ms. Kary, as the children know her, has served as the Director of Christian Education at the United Methodist Church of Auburn for the past two years.
