Our Classes

 

Registration open for the six-week summer semester. Classes run June 19 to August 1, with July 14-21 off.

We offer sibling discounts, and if the sibling is under 8 months old, they are free with their older enrolled sibling. Scroll down for the full class schedule.

Registering early not only secures your spot but it also helps to ensure the class will run!

A Music Together® Family 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 or tonalities, meters, and cultural styles.
  • 45 minutes of PURE FUN with your child every week!

Family (Mixed-Age) Class: For you and your young children age 0-5 years. Siblings may attend the same class, with sibling discounts! New songbook and CD are included, a different collection every semester! Fall, winter, and spring semesters meet for ten weeks, summer for six.

Babies Class: An introductory class just for new families with new babies, newborn through 7 months old. Fall, winter, and spring semesters meet for 8 weeks, and families are encouraged to visit mixed age classes for the additional two weeks of the semester. Read more about Babies classes here. Babies 0-7 months are also welcome in the mixed age classes, and are free if they are accompanying an older sibling in a mixed age class!

New this fall: RHYTHM KIDS, levels 1 and 2! For children 4-5, and K-2nd grade. Check it out here!

Music Together Generations: The Music Together Generations class is a mixed-age family class with a twist: the class community is expanded to include elder participants! Our lesson design and activities are adapted to build in support for fostering intergenerational relationships between “Grandfriends” and families while maintaining the core support for early childhood music development. The Elders are a wonderful source of musical knowledge, talent, and nurturing, and love to have visits from little ones - smiles all around! If your facility is interested in hosting an Intergenerational Music Together class, please contact Karen at director.meadowlark@me.com.

A note to parents: 

Our classes are geared towards providing a musical immersion experience for your children. Just like language learning, musical learning happens best in a full-immersion approach. To this end, we ask that you refrain as much as possible from talking in class, either with your spouse, other parents, or with your children. If you must communicate with your child or another adult, please try to do it non-verbally, or as a last resort, in a singing voice. Your children are especially attuned to your speaking voice (you may not think they are listening to you, but they are!!) and are easily distracted by it. And remember: Children learn more from what you do than what you say. Be a model of attentive music making.
