Music Together® Online

With Music Together® Online, you’ll have access to the same high-quality music and movement curriculum loved by millions of families and teachers around the world—from home!

Like all our classes, Music Together Online is designed to teach the way young children learn: through play. During each online music class, your beloved Music Together teacher will lead music activities for the whole family to sing, play, and jam along to and show you how to make everyday items like dish towels, pots, and stuffies into musical props. Even though your teacher is on the screen, each class has been designed as an active music-making experience for you and your little one to connect through music. 

Classes are appropriate for children under 5, but the entire family is welcome (and encouraged!) to participate in the musical fun. Click here find out more about our Babies Only class.  Let us continue to bring The Joy of Family Music® making into your living room, while keeping the 'together' in Music Together.

How Does is Work? 
We know screen time isn’t generally recommended for this age group, but here’s the difference: YOU! When children stare at a screen and passively receive information, 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. Your teacher will be on the screen, they might see their classmates on the screen, but it is truly the interaction of the parent/caregiver with the child that is going to continue their music development! Seeing and hearing you speaking the language of music is vital for them to learn the language themselves. Children learn any language at this age by listening to the adults around them speak that language. Music is no different. Your teacher won’t be “performing” for everyone online, but instead, just as always, she’ll be facilitating all the adults participation and role modelling for their little ones! We encourage you to participate the same way you would normally in the classroom even if your child wanders away and comes back frequently through the class. We will support each other as grown-ups in this experience and we will be receiving a lots of benefits ourselves like increased endorphin and oxitocin levels and generally 'upping' our mood through the act of making music. Lucky us!

What do I Need? 

  • You'll automatically be prompted to download the free Zoom App when you click on the link for your Zoom class.  Here's a short video on how to join a Zoom class for easy reference. 
  • You'll need something to view the class on so having a laptop, desktop,  phone or  tablet is necessary. 
  • Wooden spoons, yogurt tins filled with rice, dancing scarves like tea towels or baby blankets, maybe a bouncy ball, a stuffy and snuggle blanket and a kitchen jam basket of pots n' pans and whatever else you can find to make music! 

Lastly, please let us encourage you to think of this offering as a way to connect with your child, your teacher and with others in your community. We need each other during this time and we need music. We need something on this new schedule that is predictable, joyful, and reassuring! And even though we can’t be together in person, we can still be silly, interactive and playful “together” online. We hope you’ll join us!

Stay home. Stay healthy. We love you!
