Music Together® Online

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Music Together Online is presented via pre-recorded video classes and an end of semester Zoom Dance Party! All of our wonderful teachers will lead your whole family in fun music activities using songs from the current Collection. Each teacher will create two 20-22 min videos per week. You will have access to all teacher's videos per week to watch any time you want to, again and again. As always, our teachers will be modeling music making for YOU, the adult, and YOU will be modeling for your child. You can keep the screen out of view of the child if you wish. Your child may wander a bit, as they do in the in-person class, while they process the learning. This is normal and should not be construed as disengagement. Some children learn best while moving around. The more you use the songs* at home in daily life, the more your family will get out of the program! 

*You will receive your materials, Songbook and CD, by mail. The Songbook will include a code to download your music digitally through the free Hello Everybody App. Additionally, you can use that code and app log in to access extra content in the Family Music Zone at Music Together Worldwide's website musictogether.com

Mixed Age (0-4yrs)



This is the essential Music Together class, one that a child can attend from 3 mo. through age three or four, through all 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. Please note that children in these classes tend to be between age 6 mo to age 3 and even some up to age 4 that are siblings. 5yr old siblings may also be registered in a mixed age class.

Rhythm Kids™ by Music Together

Level One

NEW! Level 1 at PMT - Now includes 6 year olds!

Rhythm Kids, Level One, is the next musical step for your preschool child (ages 4–6) with a parent or caregiver.

Rhythm Kids has been expanded to include 6 year-olds!

 

•The new age range will be ages 4-6 yrs!

 

•Younger Siblings are allowed to be brought along, to sit with the parent/caregiver, but will not be expected to take part in what the 4-6yr children are doing. Though, there are still some Music Together songs included that they will want to join in on.

 

• Older siblings, over 6yrs, are also welcome to come along, as long as they participate as a music model with their adult. 

 

Each week we drum, sing, dance, play rhythm instruments, and begin to play music-based games. Rhythm Kids Level One guides children toward developmentally appropriate music and movement activities, where they can begin to take charge, lead others, and be musically creative, as they: 

·        Make up their own drumming patterns; 

·        Invent new ways to play rhythm instruments (shakers, sticks, etc.);

·        Continue to create movement ideas for Music Together songs; 

·        and even take a drum solo! 

Rhythm Kids Level One follows through on the Music Together® vision to help children complete the pathway of early childhood music development. 

Classes are for children ages 4–6 and their adult(s) and include: 

·        Weekly, 45-minute classes 

·        Animal Collection Songbook and 1 CD each semester 

·        Access to online drum-play videos and other material on the Hello Everybody app and Family Music Zone 

 

Your child will: 

·        Explore the world of rhythm through movement, instrument play, and singing

·        Develop basic rhythm skills, like keeping beat, improvising, ensemble play, and soloing 

·        Learn to create, cooperate, and express themselves musically 

 

Drums will be provided for the class each week for each registered child (or you can bring your own).
