Motor City Music Together Class Schedule

Our early childhood music classes are full of play-based activities that provide you, your child and the entire family an opportunity to experience, experiment and explore music in a non-performance based environment. We believe that young children learn best through play, and that the most important role models for young children are the adults who love them the most! In the online model, while we are using technology to lead class, it is important to note that we are on screen to facilitate and guide the adults in face to face musical play with their child. In fact, with our littlest learners, we recommend that they face you instead of the screen! Interactive play facilitated via the screen is quite different from passive screen time!

Rhythm Kids

The logical "next step" in musical development after Mixed Ages classes! For ages 4-7. Djembe drum encouraged, but a box or tabletop works too! Tuition includes a weekly 30 minute Zoom or Outdoor class songbook, CD and digital downloads, and an invitation to our end of semester Zoom Dance Party. 

 Rhythm Kids guides children toward developmentally appropriate music and movement activities, where they can begin to take charge, lead others, and be musically creative, as they:

  • make up their own drumming patterns

  • invent new ways to play rhythm instruments (shakers, sticks, etc.)

  • create movement ideas for songs

  • and even take a drum solo!


    Your child will:

  • Explore the world of rhythm through movement, instrument play, and song

  • Develop basic rhythm skills, like keeping beat, improvising, ensemble play, and soloing

  • Learn to create, cooperate, and express themselves musically

Music Together Babies Only

The one-semester Music Together® Babies Class was created especially for families with infants under eight months old. That’s right: It’s never too early to start our music classes!

Maybe you’ve noticed that your baby responds when you play a song in the car or sing to soothe him. Babies are naturally musical—and you don’t have to be a great singer or dancer yourself to nurture their love of music. In this music class for babies, your Music Together teacher will show you how you can support your baby’s music development through simple and fun activities. You’ll learn lots of musical ways to connect with your little one through music, and you’ll bond with the other new parents in your class, too.
