    Are you ready to register?

    I am concerned my child will not engage with an online class.
    Engagement may look different than you would expect! We do not expect your child to sit still and listen in class any more than we do in person. It’s not developmentally appropriate! Depending on their age, your kiddo might wander around the house, sing and dance loudly so YOU can’t hear the class (laugh), or sit and stare silently then later sing the songs as you go about your day!
    What if I miss a class?
    You will have access to each class after is has completed! You may watch them later if you miss one, or over again if you should so desire!
    Can my friends from somewhere else join?
    Yes! We see this as a part of the fun of this new online format! Those friends and family members that you have who live elsewhere can now attend your music class “with you”, providing a unique shared experience for you both!
    What about 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 take it in the same way nor do they learn in the same way as when they have the active participation of a caregiver or parent. SO, just like in our classes, you’re still the most important part. Your teacher will be on the screen, they might see their classmates on the screen, but it is truly the interaction of the parent/caregiver with the child that is going to continue their music development! We will also give you lots of fun activities and ideas to do at home while we’re all looking for WHAT to do!
    I’m not techy, is this going to be a pain?

    Nope. We are all learning and growing in ways we never have before right now. We promise we have made this as painless as possible for you.
    • All Family Classes are available by private YouTube links
    • Rhythm Kids classes will be available by recurring Zoom meeting link
    • All links sent via text and e-mail

    What is the best way to stream class?
    Whatever you are used to. We find it most pleasing to open up the YouTube App on a phone then cast to a smart TV. If that is gibberish to you, open YouTube on your TV and search for our channel “Elevate Music Together”. Don’t have a smart TV? Watch on a laptop or phone. If you go this route we suggest that you connect your device to a Bluetooth speaker for more volume.
    What if we can get back in the classroom together before the term is over?
    Then we will both get back together AND continue the online format for those who may have joined from afar.

    Re-introducing: Elevate Music Together In-Person!

    We’re bringing The Joy of Family Music® back into the classroom! We have teamed up with the Snohomish Aquatic Center to provide socially-distanced classes with smart protocols to keep everyone safe while having fun. Spot dots will be provided to help families set up their own cozy socially distant place for class. Families will bring along their own instrument set* and a yoga mat or blanket each week. Adults and those over 5 years old will wear masks, and special attention will be given to keeping everyone safe while making music.

    Join Miss Farley January 11 – March 12 as we sing, dance, and play together each week with the Bells Collection. Grab your friends and register for this fun and energetic class using the Snohomish Aquatic Center registration system. We can’t wait to SEE you there!

    Introducing Rhythm Kids Online

    Rhythm Kids® Online by Elevate Music Together

     

    Thursdays at 2pm with Miss Ashley

    Rhythm Kids is an exciting program that we are delighted to be able to offer for children 4–8  years old who are ready to lead musical activities with their peers. Through this time together, children dig deeper and gain a richer understanding of how music works. 

    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.

    Classes include:

    • 9 weekly, 40-minute Zoom classes (playback available)
    • Songbook, CDs and Download Codes  mailed to your door
    • Access to online drum-play videos and other material

    The registration cost is $195, or $250 for both if you’re also participating in Music Together Online.

    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 djembes available for purchase—you can email us for more information.
