A Music Together® Class is:
  • A community of families sharing songs, instrument play, rhythm chants, and movement activities in a relaxed, playful, non-performance-oriented setting.
  • Music learned through developmentally appropriate activities that support and respect the unique learning styles of very young children.
  • Infants, toddlers, and preschoolers participating at their own levels in family-style classes of mixed ages.
  • Parents and caregivers contributing to the enrichment of their child’s music environment, regardless of their own musical abilities.
  • A new song collection every semester for three years, featuring  great arrangements of original and traditional songs in a wide variety of tonalities, meters, and cultural styles.


45 minutes of PURE FUN with your child every week!

 

Join us for the Bongos Collection this October! 

This fall, families will come together to sing, play, laugh, and learn with the Music Together Bongos Song Collection. The songs include lots of upbeat, active songs like “See How I’m Jumping,” our take on the timeless nursery rhyme “Hey, Diddle, Diddle,” and beautiful melodies such as the Japanese song “Hotaru Koi” and “Walking through the Woods.” In addition to your weekly classes, your tuition includes recordings and materials for you to use at home, a family newsletter with more at-home music-making ideas, and online access to the songs through the Hello Everybody app.

Classes include songs, rhythmic rhymes, movement, and instrument play. These 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. Continue your musical journey with your child, or get started this fall and bring music into your family’s life!

EACH SESSION INCLUDES:

Two professionally recorded CDs and easy access to online music downloads of class activities to use at home: songs, rhythm chants, play-long" music, tonal and rhythm patterns, all pitched just in the right range for a child's developing voice. 

 Fully illustrated songbook and Music Together Growth Chart

 
Music Together at Home: A Guide for Parents and Caregivers DVD and booklet.
