Music Together FAMILY CLASSES
Music Together® classes are based on the recognition that all children are musical. This research-based program uses playful song and movement to help children learn to sing in tune, keep a beat and gain confidence in the music of their culture.
Each 10-week session (6-week session in Summer) includes a weekly 45-minute class. All families receive songbook, high quality recording and digital access to the session’s current song collection. Classes are mixed ages, taught by professionally trained and registered Music Together instructors. Tuition assistance is available on a sliding scale.
In-Person Class Offerings for Fall 2020-21
Music Together will offer a limited selection of in-person classes in Elkhart and Goshen this Fall.
Please note: due to COVID-19, we will take the following precautions to make in-person Music Together classes as safe as possible for everyone:
- Mask policy
- All teachers wear masks and face shields.
- All parents wear masks.
- In accordance with state and campus guidelines, children over age 8 are required to wear masks. Children ages 3-7 are encouraged but not required to. Please see our mask policy on the GC Music Center website.
- Family units will be seated together at a 6-foot distance from other families.
- Each family unit will be assigned their own set of instruments and props for the fall session.
- A hand sanitizing station will be available for use before and after class.
- Families will be ask to self-screen (guidelines will be posted/shared on our website)
- In the event that in-person classes become impossible, classes will shift online.
- Make-up classes will be available online rather than by visiting other classes to limit contact between families in different classes.
- Drop-in visitors (i.e. grandparents, friends) are not allowed to attend classes at this time.
- We are limiting class attendees to children 5 and under and their regularly attending caregivers. We ask that families restrict the number of older siblings (ages 6 and up) wherever possible. Please contact Jenny Campagna at email@example.com or Hillary Harder at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions about older siblings attending class.

For Music Together® there are three levels of pricing, which we ask you to self-select on your honor, based on the following income guidelines used by the Federal Free and Reduced School Lunch Program. When registering, you will be given the option to select which tier of financial aid your family qualifies and pay the corresponding amount.
