October Blog Post

Hello, everybody…so glad to see you! I love singing this in class each week and watching each child’s
response as they see a whole room full of grown-ups sing to them by name. Our “Hello” song in Music
Together is not only catchy and applicable to pretty much everything (use it during potty training!!), but
it is also the name of Music Together’s free app. One of the best parts about Music Together is that the
music goes home with you – but with the app the music can be with you wherever you are!
This app has saved me more than once with my kids – waiting in the dr’s office watching the storybook
trailers, or making a karaoke video on a rainy day. Personally I want every family to get as much as
possible out of their Music Together investment – using the app is part of that! The app is free – so I
encourage you to share it with a friend who is interested in Music Together. They’ll get to know our class
by singing along with the 8 free tunes included the app.
Here are 5 easy ways to stay connected to class with our Hello Everybody App:
1. Record your child singing along to their favorite Music Together song with the Hello
Everybody app. You can turn vocals off and record to the music right from the app!
Share your video and use #HelloEverybody. Seriously, so fun!
2. Looking for an easy way to learn all the words to this semester’s songs? While
listening through the app, you can follow along with on-screen lyrics!! No more
surprise lyrics in class!
3. The videos you record on the Hello Everybody app are also saved in your Photos
app! This makes it so easy to share the fun with your friends, and find for future. My
kids have cracked up watching themselves in their music videos.
4. Read or sing through the digital version of the full “Hello, Everybody” Singalong
Storybook. The full book is included in the app for free!
5. Every semester you enroll in Music Together, enter your new access code in the app
– you’ll have all of your song collections stored in one place. Perfect for when your
child asks for their favorite song that we sang two years ago (true story!)
Lastly, with Halloween around the corner, I challenge you to a costume music video
contest! We want to see you and & yours in their Halloween costumes, making a video to
your favorite Music Together song! You can even turn the vocals down, and change the
lyrics to fit your costume. Think “Lil’ Liza Jane” but try these Halloween lyrics:
“I know a boy that you don’t know! ________ is his name!
Dressed up like a _____________, __________ is his name.”
Any family that posts a karoake video during October or November will be entered for a coupon
towards tuition at Music Together – could be used for our Family Favorites December session or
in the future.
Goodbye, so long, farewell my friends – and see you in your costumes soon!
