ENROLLMENT FOR WINTER WILL BE OPEN ON MONDAY NOVEMBER 24th!
Join us this winter for the BELLS Collection!
This January we’ll gallop with “Trot, Old Joe”, learn an egg shaker passing game from Ghana in “Obwisana”, drum & jive with “Rhythms & Rhymes”, and create beautiful rounds in “The Bells of Westminster”, just to name a few of the 25 songs and chants in the collection from around the world. In addition to your weekly 45-minute classes, your tuition includes materials for you to use at home, a family newsletter full of resources and music-making ideas. The semester is 10 weeks long. Continue your musical journey with your child, or get started this winter. Discover the joy of family music!
Materials for home include: an illustrated songbook, one CD, a Family Resource Guide and a code to access Music Together®’s brand new Family Music Zone!

Music Together® (Ages Birth-5)
Music Together is an internationally recognized early childhood music program for babies, toddlers, preschoolers, kindergarteners, and the adults who love them. First offered to the public in 1987, it pioneered the concept of a research-based, developmentally appropriate early childhood music curriculum that strongly emphasizes and facilitates adult involvement.
Music Together classes are based on the recognition that all children are musical. All children can learn to sing in tune, keep a beat, and participate with confidence in the music of our culture, provided that their early environment supports such learning.
BIG KIDS® CLASSES (Ages 5-7) BigKids Press Release
Music Together Big Kids® is a 60-minute class geared to the interests and abilities of 5-, 6-, and 7-year-olds. The program blends the elements of Music Together that parents and children love with new activities, skills, and challenges that are developmentally appropriate for this age group.
Big Kids classes lay the foundation for Basic Music Literacy, complementing music instruction in school or instrument lessons, and leading to a lifetime of joyful music-making. The curriculum includes solfège, solos and ensembles, folk dances, harmony singing, vocal development, and drumming. In a safe, fun environment, your child can experiment with new activities like conducting and improvisation, story songs, and game songs.
Parent attendance is welcome but not required. Each family receives a Big Kids songbook, CD, solfège cards, and HomePlay activities, so that the entire family can continue the fun and learning at home and parents can stay connected with what the child is learning in class.
