Musical fun for the whole family
All children are musical. Music Together classes are tons of fun and can help your child develop to his/her full musical potential. Children age birth through five and their parents/caregivers experience songs, instrument play, and movement activities in a relaxed, playful setting with no performance pressure. Participants also receive a songbook, parent guide booklet, semi-annual newsletter, and two professionally recorded CDs for more family fun at home.
Spring semester classes run for eight weeks, April 1 through May 20. Each semester features a new collection of songs and activities. This spring we will boogie to the Tambourine Collection.
