Welcome to Music Together® Online!
Music Together Online is a package of online music experience and resources that, together, create a comprehensive music learning program with the same high quality you're used to with the Music Together program. Our online offering this fall for Mixed Ages will include one Facebook Live class and one interactive Zoom class per week, each 20-25 minutes long. We are also offering the Babies Only curriculum, exclusively for children 8 months and under, which will consist of a once-weekly 40-minute Zoom class. Our program includes the Bongos Collection Songbook, CD, and digital download package which will be delivered or mailed to your door. The online Family Music Zone gives you exclusive access to downloadable family resources (colouring pages, musical games, etc.)
Every week, we will also upload additional video content to the private FB group, which may include single song activities, singalong storybooks, musical crafts, lullabies, and parent education to help you and your child get the most out of the Music Together Online program.
FB Live classes will be recorded and will remain within our private Bongos group, and families can choose to join the live class, and/or can view it at a later time, even watch it multiple times! Repetition is great for children and truly helps them to learn music fundamentals, and as they become more familiar with the music, and with your direct participation, you will likely find they engage better in the class...yes, even online.
Zoom (Mixed Ages) 9:30 & 10:30 am
Facebook Live (Mixed Ages) 9:30 am
Zoom (Babies Only) 11:00 am
Wait...More 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 absorb it in the same way nor do they learn in the same way as when they have the active participation of a parent or close caregiver. So, just like in our in-person classes, YOU are still the most important part. Your teacher will be on the screen, children might see their classmates on the screen (depending on which platforms we're using), but it is truly the interaction of the parent/caregiver with the child that is going to continue their music development and help them to engage with the activities! In fact, you might even choose to keep the screen visible only to you as you and your child play with the music (this is what we'll suggest for a Babies Only class). We will also give you lots of fun activities and ideas to do at home while we're all looking for WHAT to do!
Please let me encourage you to think of this offering as a way to connect with your child, your teacher and with others. We need each other during this time. We need music. We need something on the schedule! We can still be silly, interactive and playful “together” online while your child internalizes basic music fundamentals through the award-winning Music Together program! We hope to see you and your little one(s) in a virtual class this fall!
TUITION (all prices include GST):
To be clear, we feel strongly that the value and integrity of the Music Together program remains intact with Music Together Online. We are still music educators with the goal to provide the highest quality music learning experience for your child. Since our overhead costs are a bit lower, we are able to pass along a reduced tuition fee for our online classes only.
