Class Description:  

This fall, families will come together to sing, play, laugh and learn with the Music Together® Bongos Song Collection. The songs include lots of upbeat, active songs like "See How I'm Jumping," our jazzy take on the timeless nursery rhyme, "Hey, Diddle, Diddle," and beautiful melodies such has the Japanese song "Hotaru Koi" and "Walking Through the Woods," and a couple of my personal favorites, "Tricks with Sticks" and "City Blues!"

Even though I am on the screen, each class is designed as an active music-making experience for little ones and their grownups. I'll lead musical activities for the whole family to sing, dance and jam along on with me and each other. We'll use everyday items like wooden spoons, scarves or dish towels, plastic containers and stuffed animals. No need to buy new instruments.

Concerned about screen time? 

Hide the screen and let me be YOUR musical guide and you model for your child. It's truly the interaction of the parent/caregiver and child that's going to continue your child's musical development. Your little one can wander, rest assured they are still taking in everything in their own way, just like they do in our in-person classes. Some kiddos learn better when they're moving around! :)Videos will be available to you anytime via our new Family Portal on the Home Page of our website throughout the semester.

Curious how families are enjoying our online classes? 

~ " I know kids don't always love Zoom, but you honestly do such an amazing job keeping them engaged. My kids have had to be on other Zoom calls and yours is the best one."- Becca Liguori, Treetops Mom of 3

 

~ "I wanted to show you how Music Together Online has been so great for us! You’re on our tv for everyone to follow along and on the smaller screen underneath is Nana all the way in California! We’ve been able to share music class with her and it’s been so wonderful to be able to keep the family together through this. Kati squeals with excitement when it’s time to “see Teacher Sammie!” And she’s been wiggling fingers for “helloooooooo” and patting her lap and she’s waving and saying goodbye to you at the end. She’s made so much progress and sings ALL THE TIME since we’ve been doing music class multiple times a week. Éva has been having a blast reliving her music classes too! I wasn’t sure how online classes were going to go, but I’m so thrilled to see how well the girls have adapted to them! Nana thanks you VERY much for giving her the opportunity to share music with her grand daughters and I know it’s made a worlds difference for her."  - Laura Blagojevic,Treetops Mom of 2
