In a Music Together® Online class, we spend about 30-35 minutes with families (grownups AND their children)—playing our shakers, bouncing on laps, marching & drumming, and so much more—all while the children are doing the marvelous work of teaching themselves through developmentally-appropriate play. We help you make DIY instruments at home—"drums," shakers, "scarves," "rhythm sticks"—and we show you how to use the stuff you find at home to make music (and make your days more joyful while supporting incredible brain and body development in your children). Like always, the adults make music the grownup way while the children play the child way—and everyone has a ton of fun. Even at home, high-energy movers and quiet observers are all equally involved in their own way as we make music. We respect individual temperaments and learning styles, even at a distance! More than ever, Music Together Online classes provide a true family music experience, as older siblings are right there at home, along with moms, dads, aunts, uncles, grandparents, or caregivers.
Here's our program in a nutshell: Music Together is a research-based, developmentally-appropriate, play-based music learning curriculum for families with children from birth through age seven. We're based on hard science, but we're ALL about having fun! As part of each family's tuition, you get a full collection of rich music (both digital and on CD), a fully-illustrated songbook, and a parent guide about how to support music development in young children.
