Our Classes Are a Fun Place to Learn!


 

In the Summer 2019 semester, we are pleased to offer two different types of Music Together classes!

MIXED-AGE CLASSES for infants to age 5
Join us for weekly, 45-minute classes for you and your child, including finger plays, songs, rhythmic rhymes, movement, and instrument play. Our classes are play-based, fun, and a great opportunity to be silly, play with your child, and strengthen your bond. Your class fee includes a CD with more than 30 fun songs and chants, a beautifully illustrated songbook (with online complete sheet music for all songs), and a parent guide and DVD for new families with more information on the research behind the program.

BABIES CLASSES for infants up to 8 months old
Designed for families with infants from birth through eight months, this class offers activities are specifically designed to teach you how to support music development in infancy and how to connect with your baby through music. Since our Babies Class uses the same song collections as our other classes, you will experience a seamless transition as your baby grows into our mixed-age and Rhythm Kids classes. 

TUITION
Summer 2019 Tuition for our 6-week session is $110 for the first child and $75 for siblings. Remember, siblings 8 months and younger and 6+ are FREE in the summer!

NOTE: TEACHER BETH AND TEACHER ANNIE WILL RETURN IN THE FALL.
ALSO RETURNING IN FALL: RHYTHM KIDS CLASSES: Two Levels for children ages 4-5 and K-2

Rhythm Kids® is an exciting music, movement, and drumming class developed by the Music Together® research team. Led by Teacher Annie Keeling, who has been teaching children's music and dance since 1990, children will sing, dance, move, drum, and play to songs and beats from around the world while they integrate and assimilate rhythm in new ways.

Mixed Ages

This is the essential Music Together class, one that a child can attend from birth through age five, with 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 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, or exploring musical instruments. Any caregivers—parents, grandparents, nanny—can bring the children. The whole family is welcome for this important and fun family music experience.

Babies Class

Join seasoned teacher Annie Keeling for this one-semester Babies Class for families with infants from birth through eight months of age. In this class, the activities are specifically designed to teach you how to support music development in infancy and how to connect with your baby through music using methods such as "purposeful touch," "sound-layering," "dancing for baby," etc. And since our Babies Class uses the same song collections as our other classes, you will experience a seamless transition as your baby grows into our mixed-age, in-school, and "Rhythm Kids" classes.
