Music Together FAMILY CLASSES
A new way to experience Music Together! Due to the ongoing situation with Covid -19 we will offer our summer session online where we can still sing and learn new musical activities together.
TWO online class options for you to choose from!
- Private Live Facebook group:* This option consists of two (2) 20-minute classes per week held live in a private live Facebook group, additional short fun or informational posts throughout the 8 weeks, and full-color songbook and CD (along with digital download for the “Hello Everybody” app from Music Together). Miss a class or the days or times do not fit your schedule? You’ll have the ability to replay a class and interact with it whenever it works for you. This class format will be taught by Jenny Campagna.
- Zoom Class:* This option consists of one (1) 35-minute class per week held on the Zoom platform, with an additional musical activity sent to families later in the week, and a full-color songbook and CD (along with digital download for the “Hello Everybody”app from Music Together). Miss a class? The recorded Zoom lesson can be sent to you after the class for you to interact with. This class format will be taught by Felicia Swanson
* Facebook and Zoom are both free apps. Facebook Live allows for limited interaction through the comment line. Zoom is a video platform, so teacher and participants can see each other, which allows for some live interaction.
NOTE: With guidance from state, local and Goshen College authorities, we are exploring the possibility of finding a way to have an optional in-person class experience toward the end of the 8-week session. (If an in-person option is approved, online classes would still be posted according to the regular Summer session schedule for those who prefer not to meet in person.)
UPDATE: Music Together online class materials will be MAILED to you!
(Originally, we were going to hold contactless curbside delivery, but we just learned that our shipment will not arrive until Thursday June 4)
NOTE: We will confirm your mailing address before sending out materials.
$120 Per Household
Reduced Lunch = $90 per household; Free Lunch = $50 per household
(Free & Reduced Lunch Guidelines are listed below)
**Please register only ONE person per household**

Fall 2020 Family Classes

For children birth to age 5 with parents or caregivers
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.
MAKEUP POLICY: Any missed classes within your current session can be made up at another scheduled class time/location with advance communication with your teacher.
Music Together con Español
Music Together con Español mixed-age class uses English / Spanish editions of our song collections, providing Spanish-language exposure within the rich music environment of the Music Together classroom.
The CD for this class has at least one Spanish verse in each song which we incorporate into the class activities. The class is taught in English. Spanish speakers and English speakers are encouraged to attend!
Tuition for Music Together family classes is $175 for first child ($120 in summer session) with a 40% discount for siblings. The Music Center is committed to helping ensure that all children have the ability to participate in musical activities. 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. Siblings in a family who are younger than 9 months may attend with other family members free of charge.
Whole year registration discount – Register for a Music Together class in all three semesters (fall, winter, spring) in one transaction before September 21, 2020, and receive 10% off your total tuition.
