In Person Music Together® Classes

Join us for the Tambourine Collection!

We’re bringing The Joy of Family Music® back into the classroom! We have teamed up both with the Snohomish Aquatic Center & Pac West Dance Lake Stevens to provide socially-distanced classes with smart protocols to keep everyone safe while having fun. Foam mat clusters will be provided to help families set up their own cozy socially distant place for class. Families will bring along their own provided instrument sets* each week to avoid sharing instruments with one another. Some classes will be mask optional and in some classes adults and those over 5 years old will wear masks**.

Class Times:

  • Tuesdays at 10:00am – Snohomish Aquatic Center w/Miss Jessica
  • Tuesdays at 11:00am (Masks Optional) – Snohomish Aquatic Center w/Miss Jessica
  • Thursdays at 10:00am – Pac West Dance Lake Stevens w/Miss Jessica
  • Saturdays at 10:00am – Pac West Dance Lake Stevens w/Teacher Cassie
  • Saturdays at 11:00am (Masks Optional) – Pac West Dance Lake Stevens w/Teacher Cassie

Join Miss Jessica and Teacher Cassie March 21 – May 28 as we sing, dance, and play together each week with the Tambourine Collection. Grab your friends and register for this fun and energetic class. We can’t wait to see you there! 

*Rhythm sticks, movement scarf, and egg shakers included with registration.

Musical Meetups

May 11, 18, 25 | June 1, 8

Wouldn’t it be fun to be part of a musical community of parents, toddlers, babies, and preschoolers all singing, dancing, and playing instruments outside together? Our Music Together Musical Meetups Mini Session creates just the space for that. Five outdoor musical gatherings are meant to bring families together who have never tried a class, been long-time Elevate Music Together families, or been a part of our online classes and are ready to venture out this Spring.

Grouping together children of varying ages fosters natural, family-style learning. Our Mixed-Age Class provides children with the environment they need to grow musically while interacting both socially and musically with peers of different ages. Younger children enjoy imitating and watching older ones; older children learn by leading younger ones; and any of your child’s caregivers—parents, grandparents, nannies—can share in the experience, both in class and at home!

During our five outdoor musical gatherings, families will bring their own instruments and blankets to spread out in a circle for 35 minutes of singing and dancing together using the Music Together Family Favorites Collection. During each class, your teacher will lead you and the other families in music activities ranging from small movement lap songs to big group dances, and explorative instrument jam time to sweet and snuggly lullabies.

We will meet up at Lake Stevens Community Park where there are many fenced fields to choose from so that the littles can’t get too far, but can still be free and enjoy the sunshine with friends! Music outside is simply magical, and being together singing and dancing will be fabulous!

We can’t wait to see you there!

    Each week we will drum, sing, dance, play rhythm instruments, and play  music-based games that reinforce, in a fun and playful manner, the rhythm patterns that we learn in class. 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
    • Practice soloing, ensemble play, and conducting!

     

    Rhythm Kids carries on the Music Together  vision to help children complete  the pathway of early childhood music development from birth through age eight.

    Children will:

    • Explore the world of rhythm through movement, instrument play, and song
    • Develop basic rhythm skills, like keeping a variety of levels of  beat,
    • Learn to create, improvise, cooperate, and express themselves musically
    • Rhythm Kids is a “drop-off” optional class. The online equivalent of this means that parents are welcome to stay and participate or children may attend on their own, if they’re ready.

    Need a drum?

    You’ll need something to drum on—a box, a bucket, a bowl. But of course, children LOVE having real drums! We have a couple of beautiful new djembes available for purchase—you can email us for more information.
