The Music Together Winter 2021 Semester
Join us for the Bells Song Collection (mixed ages) and Elephant Collection (Rhythm Kids) this Winter!
Now more than ever, we all need music. We hope you will make Music Together or Rhythm Kids part of your life this Winter.
Virtual, Hybrid Outdoor or On-Demand
As a family registered for a Winter Class (all formats) you will also have access to the fabulous library of on-demand class videos created during the semester. Included are recorded classes, bonus play at home ideas & other fun extras. You will receive the Music Together semester materials which allow you to listen to the Bells song collection on the go with the Hello Everybody App and share the engaging Song Book with your child.
In the upcoming Bells song collection, families will play with their voices by mimicking the sounds of instruments in the “French Folk Song,” and Spanish-speaking animals in “De Colores.” (Did you know that in Spanish, roosters say “Quiri-quiri quiri” to wake people up?) Making funny animal sounds, lip-burring, and other tonal play helps children explore their vocal register, discover their singing voices and distinguish them from their speaking voices. And since children learn from contrasts and by expressing music with their full bodies, you’ll be hopping lightly like birds and sliding smoothly like an ice skater. You’ll have so much fun you won’t even notice that you’re learning staccato and legato! In addition to your weekly classes, your tuition includes recordings and materials for you to use at home, including access to the songs through the Hello Everybody app.
Join the Winter session and play, sing, laugh and learn with families in your community.
The Elephant Collection (Rhythm Kids) features triple-meter drumming patterns inspired by the traditional social dance from Mali known as Suku. We’ll enjoy dramatic play in “Elephant Stampede” and choreographed dancing and drumming in “Music Everywhere.” We’ll also learn a delightful Gaelic children’s song called “Dilín ó Deamhas” and, of course, have a blast doing “The Elephant Dance”! All the songs in this collection have been chosen and arranged specifically to support each student’s music development.
****Families registered in Mixed Age MTO who have older children can add Rhythm Kids at a discount ($90 off) - contact us for coupon code.
Families will use their own instruments for our classes at this time - HOWEVER we do have Musical Instrument Bags with assorted Sanitized Gently Used Rhythm Instruments for Sale. To purchase Contact the office.
With Music Together Online, the teachers you know and love from Lyrical Children will guide YOU (the adults) LIVE with fun activities to interact with your child(ren). Participants can be individual families as well as Pod or Homeschool groups.
With MTO your screen/device is merely a "window" - through which the adults follow the teacher, while doing the activities with their children. It's not about watching us - It's about you showing your child how much you enjoy making music with us (even if/when they are busy doing something else:)
Enrollment for MTO is Per Family with unlimited makeups!
