Music Together® Family Classes
Fall 2022

Registration Now Open!
Classes Begin September 12

Welcome to Music Together!

Each of our classes is a community of children and their families and teachers sharing songs, instrument play, rhythm chants, and movement activities in relaxed, playful, non-performance-oriented settings for 45 minutes each class.

During our classes music is learned through developmentally appropriate activities that support and respect the unique learning styles of very young children.

Children participate at their own levels in mixed-age family-style classes.

Parents and caregivers all contribute to the enrichment of their child’s music environment—regardless of their own musical abilities.

A new song collection is used every semester for three years, featuring great arrangements of original and traditional songs in a wide variety of tonalities, meters, and cultural styles.

Drum. Play. Create.

Rhythm Kids®

With Lake Stevens School District Community Education Program

Wednesdays 4:15 to 5 p.m | October 12 – Dec 7
Highland Elementary Music Room
Children Ages 4-8 | Drop Off Optional*

Our Rhythm Kids classes tap into how kids ages 4-9 are wired to learn. Djembe drumming, music games, rhythm pattern play, and more engage their creativity—and inspire them to explore their musicality in new ways, both during and outside class. During each weekly, high-energy class, kids have a blast singing, dancing, and jamming to rhythms and tunes inspired by musical traditions around the world. Their specially trained teacher leads group and individual activities that get students up and moving as they learn to compose, choreograph, and conduct. Bonus: The music and movement activities naturally support several key developmental areas, including executive function, emerging math skills, and leadership.

Through this 9 week class, children dig deeper and gain a richer understanding of music while singing, playing instruments, playing games, with Teacher Cassie.

 During Their Time In Class Children Will:

  • Play instruments such as djembes, egg shakers, and rhythm sticks
  • Explore rhythm through movement, games, 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 through playing instruments, dancing, and playing musical games together
  • Create our own instruments to take home!

Cost:$210
Siblings: $80 each

*Rhythm Kids is a “drop-off” optional class. Parents may choose to stay and participate in the fun with their child or if their child is ready to drop off their child for the duration of class.
