Class Types

Music Together® Online (birth to 5)

Music Together Online is a package of experiences and resources that create a comprehensive music and movement curriculum with the same high-quality, research-based curriculum Music Together has been known and loved for by families around the world for over 25 years. 

Like all our classes, Music Together Online is designed to teach the way young children learn: through play. During each online music class, Music Together teachers from your local center will lead music activities for the whole family to sing, play, and jam along to and show you how to make everyday items like dish towels, pots, and stuffies into musical props. Even though your teacher is on the screen, each class has been designed as an active music-making experience for little ones and their grownups.

All classes will use the award-winning songs from the Maracas Song Collection. When you enroll, you will receive a beautifully illustrated songbook, CD and access code to download your music and other digital materials through our award-winning Hello Everybody app. You’ll also receive an invitation to our private Facebook group exclusively for families enrolled in our Spring Session with bonus at-home activities and inspiration to keep the music-making going throughout your week.

Classes are appropriate for children under 5, but the entire family is welcome (and encouraged!) to participate in the musical fun.

 


 

Music Together Babies Class Online (under 8 mos)

Every child's development benefits from early exposure to music and movement. This class is specially designed for infants 8 months and younger on the first day of class and their parents or caregivers. The music activities and materials are specially designed for parents who want to learn as much as possible about music development in babies and how they can support it within their everyday life as a family. 

For our families enrolled in our Babies Class Online, we will be building a community of parents/caregivers of babies under 8 months, providing vital connection and support to one another as you individually learn and adopt practices to nurture your infant's earliest responses to music through your voice, tandem movement, purposeful touch and more! These connections, some of your first budding friendships with other parents/caregivers, will be more vital than ever as we remain homebound. We have increased the length of the Babies Class session to 10 weeks this Spring (usually 8 weeks) and will be making Babies-specific videos available in addition to our weekly class and access to our live streams and other content.

 


 

Rhythm Kids Online, Level 1 (ages 4-5)

Rhythm Kids Online, Level 1 is the next musical step for your preschool child (ages 4–5). The curriculum guides children toward developmentally appropriate music and movement activities where they can begin to take charge, lead others, and grow more musically creative, as they make up their own drumming patterns, invent new ways to play rhythm instruments, create movement ideas for 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 from birth through age eight. 

A Toca Colorsound djembe drum is included in your tuition for the first semester of Rhythm Kids. This becomes your child's own djembe to play with at home and bring to class each week. If you would like to purchase your own drum instead, please ask your teacher about the special discounts on djembe drums that are available to Rhythm Kids families.

Rhythm Kids Online will be the highlight of your week as we sing, dance and drum together right in your own home! We will share in a rich music learning experience while having a much-needed outlet for creativity, movement and FUN the rhythmic patterns and songs of the current collection, named after a different animal each semester. There will be special Rhythm Kids live streams, downloadable Rhythm Kids worksheets, access to online drum-play videos and other material, game ideas and more. You will also have access to all the content we post to our private Facebook group, so there will be no shortage of musical content to absorb and inspire you!
