CLASS SCHEDULE

Music Together Online:

As parents, we are constantly being bombarded with new information as we try to make the most of this situation we all share in. The move to Music Together Online may seem like a daunting one, and you may be thinking that more screen time does not seem like a good idea. While it is true that a surplus of passive screen time is not recommended for this age group, the Music Together Online experience is different.

The Music Together Online program is designed to be interactive and engaging for both you and your little ones. It is not and should not be held in the same category as a TV show or an app, and the reason for that is, YOU!

I know many of you may be thinking how difficult it is to get your child to sit and focus on a screen, and this concern is valid. When children sit and watch a screen, they passively receive information. It is extremely important to note that this passive experience is NOT what Music Together Online was designed to create. Rather, Music Together Online offers and encourages active participation through the music your child knows and loves and through the participation of their parent or caregiver. When a child witnesses the active participation of an adult, they are more apt to participate themselves. This shared participation is what separates Music Together Online from passive screen time. Just like in class, you are still the most important part of a program designed to get everyone moving, singing and dancing TOGETHER!

 

Two Class Offerings this Fall:

 

1.  Live Music Together classes on Zoom, which will consist of 45 minutes.

 Or

2. Pre-recorded, which will consist of one 45 minute class recording a week.

 

Mixed Ages Class

This is the essential Music Together class, one that a child can attend from birth through age five-and through all nine song collections. Leading psychologists endorse mixed-age groupings because they foster natural, family-style learning. The younger children learn by observing and imitating the older ones; the older children benefit from singing to, moving with and being appreciated by the 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. The class provides a variety of adult-child activities that are fun and offer new ways to play musically at home. Parents, grandparents, or nanny, individually or together, may accompany the children. The whole family is welcome for this important family musical experience.
