Our Classes

Music Together® is offering both Online! and In-person classes this Fall! Whether you want to continue your family music making experience at home, come together with your "pod" for a private class (email me!), or join an in-person class (with protocals), the choice is yours!

Welcome!

Join our music making community! Classes are offered in Bellevue 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.

Mixed Ages

This is the essential Music Together class, one that a child can attend from birth to age five through all nine song collections. This basic class follow the recommendations of child development researchers-grouping children of a variety of ages because this fosters natural, family-style learning.  Younger children enjoy watching and imitating older ones; older children learn by leading younger ones; and adults are happy because the children in the family can go to class together. Each child participates at his or her own level in singing, moving, chanting, listening, watching or exploring musical instruments. Any caregivers-parents, grandparents, nanny-can bring the children. The whole family is welcome for this important family music experience.

$215 first child course fee - $150 sibling course fee - $25 new fam reg fee - additional siblings FREE

Babies

Every child’s development benefits from early exposure to music and movement. Because the early months are so important, Music Together offers two options for babies. Babies eight months and younger at the time of registration may attend a Mixed Ages Class, whether registered on their own or attending free with an older brother or sister. Babies may also take the special “Babies Class” offered as a one-semester introduction to Music Together. (This class cannot be repeated.) The music activities and material are specially designed for parents who want to learn as much as possible about music development in babies. Meet other parents of newborns and learn some fascinating music activities you can recreate at home with your baby.
