ONLINE SPRING 2020 Classes

The 9-week ONLINE SPRING session will run:

April 14 - June 14

 

Due to COVID-19 we are offering a special Online Spring Session! We will provide 45min of exclusive content in short videos for you and your child, and other online content, specifically crafted to helping you make music with your family during this unprecedented experience. Sing-a-long live-streams, parent education videos about your child's development, play-along recommendations, a personal "Hello Song" recorded by a teacher for you and your child... these are some of the great things to look forward to during this session!

We will finish up the semester with in-person classes in the month of June. We will remain flexible during this process, and will follow local and national leadership to decide when to resume in-person classes.

You will also have the opportunity to use an online code for the Maracas Music Together® music, and we will also have two times for curbside pickup if you would like to receive a physical book and CD as normal.

 

All online content in this session will be created or curated by : 

Maggie Gill, Center Director and registered Music Together teacher.

Summer Thompson, registered Music Together® teacher.

Christy Vest, registered Music Together® teacher.

MIXED-AGE CLASSES

This is the essential Music Together class, one that a child can attend from birth through age four through all the nine song collections.  This basic class follows the recommendations of child-development researchers--grouping children of a variety of ages because this fosters natural, family-style learning.  Younger children enjoy watching and imitating older ones; older children learn by leading younger ones; and adults are happy because all the children in the family can go to one class together. Each child participates at his or her own level in singing, chanting, moving, listening, watching, or exploring musical instruments. Any caregiver--parents, grandparents, nannies--can bring the children.  The whole family is welcome for this important family music experience! Included in this session's tuition are:

  • 45-minute classes once a week for 10 weeks (Up to 2 make-up classes can be scheduled within a session if you have to miss class.) 
  • Music Together current collection songbook 
  • CD and digital download featuring the current collection, plus online support and a "Family Music Zone"
  • Parent Guide with information about music and child development (for families new to the program)
  • Discounted tuition for siblings; siblings under 10 months and 5 or older attend free

BABIES CLASS

Especially designed for babies 8 months and younger with a parent or caregiver, this 10-week class features special songs and activities to help you identify and encourage musical responses in your baby.

  • 45-minute classes once a week for 10 weeks specifically designed to help you give your child the very best start in his or her musical development
  • Music Together songbook with special insert about music development in infants
