Music Together® Online
Music Together Online is presented via pre-recorded video classes and (as of Fall '20) weekly live 30 m Zoom classes! *
Teachers will lead your whole family in fun music activities using songs from the current Collection. Each teacher will also create one 25 min video per week for you to watch whenever you wish. You can schedule unlimited make ups for missed Zoom classes, on a space available basis.
Note makeups can not be rolled over to another semester.
Don't want to choose a specific Zoom class?
We also have a "Pre-recorded Only" option whereby you do not choose a Zoom class and you can schedule "occasional" classes using our Make up Scheduler, as space allows. You will have access to all 5 teacher's pre-recorded videos per week to watch any time you want to, again and again during the Semester.
Note: "Occasional classes" can not be rolled over to another semester.
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. Screen time becomes seen time! Your child can 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, or by (distanced) pick up, your choice. 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

Babies Class (under 11 mo)
BABY CLASS ON ZOOM!
FALL 2020 ONLINE WITH LIVE ZOOM CLASS WITH TEACHER CHRIS!
Note: NO SCREEN TIME FOR BABIES, JUST ADULTS.
Babies under 11 months, and their caregivers, are invited to take a special Babies Class, as a one semester introduction to Music Together. When surrounded by music, babies actually begin reacting and trying to make music with you! Learn how to recognize and encourage that playful exchange while also encouraging bonding and musical response with your baby. Music activities are specially designed for parents who want to learn as much as possible about music development in infants, meet other parents of newborns and learn some fascinating music activities you can recreate at home with your baby. Any caregivers—parents, grandparents, nanny—can bring the children. Both parents or grandparents are welcome for this important family music experience. Please note babies are also allowed in mixed age classes ages 0-4yrs.
Mixed Age (0-4yrs)
Rhythm Kids - Ages 4-8!
THIS INFO IS REGARDING IN PERSON CLASSES NOT OFFERED AT THIS TIME.
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 WILL BE AVAILABLE THIS FALL, LIVE ON ZOOM! With Teacher Steve Eulberg

Rhythm Kids™ by Music Together
Level One/Two combined
Rhythm Kids is the next musical step!
Rhythm Kids has been expanded to include 8 year-olds!
•The new age range will be ages 4-8 yrs.
•Younger Siblings are allowed to be there, to sit with the parent/caregiver, but will not be expected to take part in what the older children are doing. Though, there are still some Music Together songs included that they will want to join in on.
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 follows through on the Music Together® vision to help children complete the pathway of early childhood music development.
Classes are for children ages 4–8 and their adult(s) and include:
· Weekly, 40-minute Zoom class taught by Teacher Steve
· 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 not be provided for the class. You can use a box or you can get a small djembe. Info will be sent to you about how to get them.
We will be using the Kangaroo Collection this Fall.
