Music Together ONLINE!
The end of our winter session was cancelled, but makeup classes will be online the week of March 31 - April 4. All returning and new families are welcome to sign up today. We will be exploring "Maracas" in our Mixed Age and Babies classes. The Rhythm Kids will have fun with "Sea Turtle," learning new drum patterns and chants.
All Spring classes are moving to an online format while we collectively ride out the Covid-19 pandemic. Pre-registration is open now for returning families to secure a class.
All of us at Music Together know screen time isn’t generally recommended for this age group, but here’s the difference: YOU! When children stare at a screen and passively receive information, they don’t take it in the same way nor do they learn in the same way as when they have the active participation of a caregiver or parent. SO, just like in our classes, you’re still the most important part. Your teacher will be on the screen, they might see their classmates on the screen, but it is truly the interaction of the parent/caregiver with the child that is going to continue their music development! We will also give you lots of fun activities and ideas to do at home while we’re all looking for WHAT to do!
Lastly, please let me encourage you to think of this offering as a way to connect with your child, your teacher and with others. We need each other during this time. We need music. We need something on the schedule! And even though we can’t be together in person, we can still be silly, interactive and playful “together” online. I hope you’ll choose to stick with us! I can tell you that I have been missing your littles as much, or more, than they are missing me and their friends. I can’t wait to see your faces again!
Please reach out to me with any questions or ideas.
Stay home. Stay healthy. Love each other, and sing!!
