Our Classes

Music Together with Mrs. Chrisi is offering both Online! and In-person classes! 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 protocols), the choice is yours! (subject to adjustments with state guidelines)

Welcome!

Join our music making community! 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. In December, join us for a Holiday Sing-a-long (or two!). 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
