MT Online

 
Music Together® Online is a package of online music experiences and resources that creates a comprehensive music learning program with the same high quality you're used to with the Music Together program. I know- it sounds strange, but stick with us and keep reading! And, please be sure to read the section below about screen time and adult involvement . . .
 

Families enrolled for Spring Music Together Online will have access to these experiences:

  • A full 10-week class session - just online instead! Our teachers (Heather and Kristin) will hold live, 20-25 minute virtual classes Monday-Saturday mornings at 10 am. As a spring participant, you will be allowed to sign up to participate in two sessions each week. Basically, it means you'll still get your weekly 45-minute class experience, but in smaller doses to help better fit into your daily screen time allotments.
  • The NEW Maracas Song Collection! Families will get a digital download code and the promise of getting your physical materials as soon as it is deemed safe. We know that having the Music Together music as well as the songbook at home is one of the hallmarks of our program, but until it's safe to meet in person again, the download code will give you the music as well as a digital copy of the songbook.
  • Access to our SUPER SECRET Spring Semester Facebook Group! This will be a moderated group, and access will only be given to people who join us for the spring Maracas online session. In this private group, we’ll post a variety of content, such as:
  • Facebook Live Pop-Up Events (i.e. singalong story time, mid-afternoon dance parties, and other fun Maracas-themed ideas),
  • Musical craft ideas (get help making your own instruments!),
  • Parent Education check-ins (to offer support as you make it through each week),
  • "Homemade" videos from our registered families, to share their music-making stories from home (if you wish!)
  • Bonus Video Content from Music Together Worldwide! Access to videos featuring special guests like Music Together's own Uncle Gerry, exclusively for enrolled families.
  • Downloadable family resources! (coloring pages, musical games, etc)

Wait, screen time?

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, but it is truly the interaction of the parent/caregiver with the child that is going to continue their music development! We will give you lots of fun activities and ideas to do at home, to help you along in the process. Also, please remember that your child may not sit still the whole time! We don’t expect them to do so in class, so please don’t expect them to at home. For some of our children, this new platform will be a gradual process getting used to the routine each week, just as the rest of us are still adjusting to this "new normal." You'll simply keep making music with the teacher on the screen, follow along, and have faith your child is getting the usual educational, musical enrichment from your involvement, even if they move about the room!

Classes are for all young music makers and their parents/caregivers.
