Our Classes

Welcome!

Join our music making community! Classes are offered in Bellevue (Lake Hills and Newport Hills) and Mercer Island. Please register for a 1st and 2nd choice as all classes are subject to combination or cancellation due to low enrollment. 

During our 45-minute Mixed-age family class we sing, dance, clap, enjoy finger-plays, and rhythmic chants and even have an instrument play-along jam session! Our class has children of many ages and this is educationally sound. The younger children learn by observing and imitating the older ones; the older children benefit from singing to, moving with, and being appreciated by the younger ones. Most importantly, vocal discoveries, movement ideas, or ways to play an instrument are communicated freely from child to child, regardess of age or stage of development. Leading child phychologists endorse mixed-age groupings because children learn more easily and more deeply there than in a single-age class. Our class also provides "parent education moments" to help you understand the musical development of your child(ren). This all takes place in a fun, non-performance oriented setting. 

Each Fall, Winter and Spring, we introduce a new 10 week song collection (9 in all, spaced over a period of 3 years). Our Summer collections are "The Best of Music Together®" containing music from various collections. For the Holidays we meet for just 3 weeks in December and use the "Family Favorites" CD. These collections feature original and traditional songs with a wide variety of tonalities, meters and cultural styles.
