Our Classes

What is Music Together®?

Music Together Online includes:

 

1) One 30-minute interactive Zoom class (class size limited to 12 families) plus one 15-minute pre-recorded video per week featuring Miss Lori presenting songs/chants/activities just as she would in class.  Zoom classes will be recorded and both weekly videos will be posted in a private portal so enrolled famlies can watch them at their convenience.  
2) "Kazoo" collection materials: songbook, CD, digital download, music development growth chart, parent guide.  Families will have the option of picking up the materials (no-contact pickup), or having the materials mailed to them.  
3) Access to additonal resources from Music Together Worldwide, exclusively for enrolled families (coloring pages, activity sheets, games, activity ideas, etc).
 

 

 

Mixed Age Classes:

Our 45-minute mixed-age classes meet once a week for 9 weeks and include songs, rhythmic rhymes, movement, and instrument play. The activities are presented as informal, non-performance-oriented musical experiences...developmentally appropriate for children and easy for parents and caregivers, regardless of their own musical ability.  A child can attend these classes from birth through age five - and through all nine different song collections. Child development researchers recommend mixed-age groupings because they foster natural, family-style learning. Younger children enjoy watching and imitating older ones; older children learn by leading younger ones; and adults are happy because the children in the family can go to class together. Each child participates at his or her own level in singing, moving, chanting, listening, watching, and exploring musical instruments.  

 

Babies Classes:

Every child’s music development benefits from early exposure to music and movement. Because the early months are so important, Music Together® offers two options for babies. Infants may attend a mixed-age class, whether registered on their own or attending free with an older sibling. They may also be registered for the special “Babies Class” offered as a one-semester introduction to Music Together. The music activities and materials are specially designed for parents and caregivers who want to learn as much as possible about music development in infants. Meet other parents of newborns and learn fascinating music activities you can recreate at home with your baby. Babies must be under seven months old on the first day of class. Most babies in this program range from 3-5 months at the start of the semester.  This class cannot be repeated.
