Music Together®

Music Together programs around the world offer a mixed-age, research-based, parent/caregiver-child class for infants, toddlers, preschoolers & kindergarten children.  Songs, instrument play, rhythm chants, and movement activities taught in a creative yet structured setting. Music is learned through play, with activities that support and respect the unique learning styles of very young children. Music Together classes also nourish a family's efforts to create a rich and joyful musical environment at home, regardless of parents' musical abilities, with wonderful take-home materials.  The program develops each child's innate potential to gain basic music competence (singing in tune with accurate rhythm) while fostering a love of music for life-long enjoyment and developing cognitive, emotional and motor skills.  Read what parents and grandparents have to say here.  Video on the homepage

        

 

Ukulele Beginners

Class for Beginners (Adults/Teens/Kids over 11)  wishing to learn a wonderful instrument and many styles of music.  No previous music knowledge necessary!  Ukuleles have gained recent popularity all over the country because of their ease of playing, wonderful sound, portability and musical versatility.  We'll sing and play in a group (group singing has been shown to reduce stress and strengthen the immune system), working in the key of C.  Songbook is The Daily Ukulele with 365 songs. If you need a ukulele, call Amy at 249-9560.

      

Ukulele Intermediate

Ukulele class for those who have taken Ukulele Beginner,  Ukulele Adv.Beg., or for those who can already play basic chords in the keys of C and G.  Tuition prices will vary if you need a tuner, ukulele or The Daily Ukulele book.  In this class we will start to work through more complicated songs in the Keys of C and G, start finger-picking, learn to transpose songs, do some reading of tablature (note playing method).  More fun singing and playing!  

The Kukuleles

People in this group are familiar with many songs in The Daily Ukulele, can read chord diagrams quickly including the jazz chords, and sometimes like to perform at local events.  This is for Intermediate players who are comfortable learning new chords/songs and enjoy singing for fun.  Students may sign up for any performances they are interested in, or none at all.  Open to all students who have completed Ukulele Intermediate Class or demonstrate appropriate skill. Several classes (and makeup opportunities if you miss a class).
