Classes are made up of 6-12 children and their adult caregivers. All classes are for mixed age family groups. (Why mixed ages? Read the FAQs to find out.)

Each week we explore the songs and chants in the semester's song collection. A dozen musical experiences are included in each class, which incorporate fun, playful, and interactive ways to focus on tonal and rhythmic elements of music. Instruction is informal; children may or may not participate as they choose and do so according to their developmental level.
The teacher helps adults understand how to participate, regardless of their musical ability, and the importance of relaxing and enjoying the activities with their children. Parent education during class will help parents understand the relevance of class activities to each child's musical development.

Our summer session runs for six weeks; classes are held weekly and last forty-five minutes each. Summer tuition is:

  • $135 for one child
  • $75 for one sibling
  • $50 for additional siblings
  • Siblings 10 months and younger attend free
The price includes two professionally produced CDs, an illustrated songbook, online access to Music Together's Family Music Zone featuring music downloads, videos and more, and parent education materials. There is a one-time new family registration fee of $10.
