Our Classes

Music Together® class is STILL:

A place where…
…blue dinosaurs sit in trees and squeak,…soup is made with ice cream, apples and cookies…dogs howl, horses trot, and penguins waddle
A place where…
…the singing is louder, the dancing is goofier, the snuggles are snugglier, and the cuddles are cuddlier

A place where…
…we celebrate that every child is musical, and that every grown-up is musical too!
A place where…
…friends are made, communities are formed, and parents fall in love with their children all over again!

COVID-SAFE IN-PERSON CLASSES
We are pleased to be able to offer the opportunity to make Music Together in person for all those who are craving to return to a safe, social community environment. Musical creativity, expression and community connection in a Music Together class comes alive when everyone in the circle feels safe, so here's what you can expect from your "New-Normal" In-Person Music Together class :
  • a reduced class size of 6 children, 6 parents/caregivers and 1 instructor
  • each class will form an exclusive cohort (so no guests, demos, make-ups or instructor substitutes)
  • strict sanitization practices (including hand sanitization and common area surface sanitization) before and after class
  • each family will receive an individual family instrument basket and each classroom will be supplied with an days-worth of instruments  (so no community-shared or "cleaned between class" instruments)
  • mandatory masks for everyone 4 years and older
  • strict social distancing rules for everyone 4 years and older (visually aided by demarcated "family zones")
  • DEVELOPMENTALLY APPROPRIATE social distancing rules for children younger than 4yo. (We kindly ask that our classroom communities work together in gently guiding all the children in the circle to stay 2m apart, but please recognize that maintaining proper social distance is an unrealistic expectation for our littler ones. We cannot discourage the younger children in our circle from moving freely throughout the classroom, so please check in with your comfort level on that before registering for an in-person class).
  • we have scheduled 30 minute gaps between classes to allow for common-area surface sanitation and non-congested traffic flow
  • all of our in-person instructors will undergo COVID testing every 2 weeks throughout the semester
You can be rest assured that your family's safety is our top priority. We will adhere to all government guidelines (and beyond) to give you peace of mind so you can leave your worries behind and just enjoy making Music Together with your family and community!
Only our Family Mixed-Age Classes are offered In-person

Online Mixed-Age Family Class

(for children ages 0-6yrs)

The Online Mixed-Age Family Class truly brings The Joy of Family Music® into your home. Gather the whole family together, bring your homemade instrument bin of anything in the house that shakes, bangs, rings, or clicks together and get ready to play along! We'll guide you through a delightful collection of songs, chants, rhythms and rhymes and together we'll make music time your famlly's most precious time of the week!

Online Big Kids Music Class

(for children ages 4.5-8.5yrs)
Music Together’s research has recognized that one of the key elements to ensuring that your child remains a confident music-maker for the rest of his/her life is to keep him/her in an informal group music-making setting. The Online Big Kids Music Class is designed with that in mind! Through an interactive online platform, we'll faciitate a creative, non-pressured environment that will coax the strong music-maker in your child to the foreground. The Music Together Rhythm Kids music cirriculum introduces your child to basic musical theory activities that will give them a solid rhythmic and tonal foundation. Our Big Kids Music Class is the perfect place for ALL of our Division 1 learners right now. Whether they are learning online or in person - both streams are not providing an outlet for our mighty music makers to sing and move! So have no fear - our Online Big Kids Music Class is here. We are your child's safe space to sing, dance, move, learn, play, make music, make memories, and make friends!

It's SCREEN TIME WITH A PURPOSE!

Online Grandparents Class

(ages 0-100yrs))

In order to protect society's most vulnerable treasures from this unforgiving virus, we can't have visits with Grandma and Grandpa like we used to. No more "Grandma Hugs" or "Grandpa Whisker Kisses" :-( 

So we want to give you a new way to give your beloved grandparents a huge "musical hug" by offering an Music Together Online Mixed-Age Family Class exclusively for Grandparents and their Grandkids. Each registration will reserve a ZOOM spot in the class for the Grandkid's home plus additional ZOOM spots for the Grandparent's home. Both will join in on the same class link. No matter where Gramma and Grampa live - across the city, across the province, across the country or across the globe -  THE WHOLE FAMILY can meet online to make some joy-filled Music Together! Then after class, we'll leave time to break each family out into their own private "Zoom Room" to have a private family visit! It truly is the sweetest lemonade we can make from these lemons :-)

It's our way of keeping those beautifully wise and gentle wrinkles smiling while still keeping them safe and healthy <3

In-Person Mixed-Age Family Class

(for children ages 0-6yrs)

We are pleased to be able to offer the opportunity to make Music Together in person for all those who are craving to return to a safe social community environment. By implementing protocols including reduced class sizes, strict sanitization practices, individual family instrument baskets, mandatory masks for all adults, developmentally appropriate social distancing rules, and safe common-area traffic flow schematics, you can be rest assured that your family's safety is our top priority!  We will adhere to all government guidelines (and beyond) to give you peace of mind so you can leave your worries behind and just enjoy making Music Together with your family and community!


Educators have long considered mixed-age groupings beneficial, and Music Together® is designed with this in mind because it speaks directly to our program’s philosophy. Take away the idea of the age-delineated classroom and you take away the age-delineated agenda and expectations that come with it. The Mixed-Age Family Class encourages ALL children to participate, process, and experiment with music in whatever way is developmentally appropriate for them. It is a highly effective learning dynamic because it allows every child to personally create their own musical challenges and therefore their own successes. What a great kind of magic when you can empower a child to believe that there is nothing musical that he or she can’t do!
