We're excited to provide a Hybrid opportunity for those who would like the inclusion of in-person experiences during the semester. When the weather is appropriate class will be outdoors following our socially distant protocols (no precipitation and feel like temp above 35 - 40 degrees). On days when that is not possible you will participate with your class families at a virtual Zoom class. Either way your teacher lead you with the music and activities to enjoy with your child. In either format the little ones will interact musically and the grown-ups will participate enthusiastically! Lots of singing, dancing, instrument-playing, and a whole lot of fun!
Each enrolled family will receive a CD full of all the music we'll be singing and dancing to in class, a digital download code so you and other caregivers can access the music from any device, a delightfully illustrated songbook to snuggle up with at home, and additional activities to enjoy at home.
Get ready! Classes are coming soon!
We are always big on community-oriented, music participation & during this time of needing to stay socially distant for our safety and that of others around us, Music Together® Worldwide (our “Mothership”) has been adapting to bring you Music Together in a variety of community building ways. As always, our focus is on facilitating and guiding parents with ways to "play" musically with their children!
Parents have found now more than ever that music brings a fun break to the day, and the structure of the class provides consistency for the children.
In-person Mixed-Age Music Together classes - following current NYS Covid Protocols - for families with children from birth thru 5 yrs.
