Music Together Online (Amy leads live Zoom class--twice a week for 8 weeks-- with small groups of adults with children) programs offer a mixed-age, research-based, parent/caregiver-child home class for infants, toddlers, preschoolers & kindergarten children. Loved the world over, there are songs, instrument play, rhythm chants, and movement activities taught in a creative yet structured setting. Music is learned through play, with activities that support and respect the unique learning styles of very young children. Music Together classes also nourish a family's efforts to create a rich and joyful musical environment at home, regardless of parents' musical abilities, with wonderful supporting materials such as the Hello Everybody app, songbook and activity ideas. The program develops each child's innate potential to gain basic music competence (singing in tune with accurate rhythm) while fostering a love of music for life-long enjoyment and developing cognitive, emotional and motor skills.

Screen time isn’t generally recommended for babies and toddlers, but here’s the difference: YOU! When children stare at a screen alone, they don’t take it in the same way, nor do they learn in the same way, as when they have the active participation of a caregiver or parent. SO, just like in our classes, you’re still the most important part. It is truly the interaction of the parent/caregiver with their child that is going to nurture a young child's music development! Our class and the songbook will also give you lots of ideas for doing music all week.
