Music Together is a community of families sharing songs, instrument play, rhythm chants, and movement activities in a relaxed, playful, non performance-oriented setting. Music is learned at a developmentally appropriate level and respects the learning styles of young children (even babies!). Parents and caregivers contribute to the enrichment of their child’s music environment–regardless of their own musical abilities.
Each family receives Music Together CDs, digital downloads, and a songbook. See class schedule and cost below.
This is the essential Music Together class, one that a child can attend from birth to age five through all nine song collections. This basic class follows the recommendations of child development researchers—grouping children of a variety of ages because this fosters natural, family-style learning. Younger children enjoy watching and imitating older ones; older children learn by leading younger ones. Each child participates at his or her own level in singing, moving, chanting, listening, watching, or exploring musical instruments. Any caregivers—parents, grandparents, nanny—can bring the children. The whole family is welcome for this important family music experience.
Cost: $160/Session | Additional child: $66 (Siblings under 8 months are free, but must be registered)
Please call 608-232-1510 for sibling discount or to register a child under 8 months.
Make it a morning at MSAC! Check out our Early Childhood Art classes on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday offered right before and after Music Together.
The Generations music class is a Mixed-Age Music Together class with the sweetest twist: the addition of senior participants. Kids and their grownups visit their “Musical Grandfriends” at Attic Angel Community in Middleton, an independent and assisted living facility. These intergenerational music classes for seniors and children are popular retirement home activities because the fun songs and children’s liveliness help to brighten up everybody’s day. Making music together connects people in ways that few other activities can. Fee includes ten 45 minute classes and all Music Together materials. Cost: $160/Session | Additional child: $66 (Siblings under 8 months are free). Discount for families taking this as their second Music Together class through MSAC Cost: $50 per child.
Make-up classes are to be during one of the available classes listed, and cannot be carried over into another session. While regular class attendance is important, the orientation of the Music Together program extends the class experience into the child’s life outside of the class by means of parent education and supporting materials, such as the recordings and songbooks. Tuition includes these items and consequently is not “wasted” even if the classes are missed. We are unable to prorate fees for missed Music Together classes. We understand that missing a class may be inevitable. With several classes at their capacity, we now have a list of available classes that has room for make-ups. No need to call, just drop into one of the classes listed, and let the teacher know when you arrive that your family is attending a make-up class.
*Classes will be listed after the first few classes have taken place*
