We love music class!! We did so much research before having our daughter: how to socialize her, best ways to build language, how to incorporate music and rhythm into her daily activities, how much screen time is appropriate and at what age. We found Music Together and absolutely loved in person classes and then a pandemic hit. No more socializing and no more face to face classes, everything is virtual. Throw out all the research we did, we decided to give it a try; what’s 30-45 minutes of screen time a week, anyways?
It turns out our, now 15 month old, daughter absolutely loves music class, and so do her parents! The freedom to let her explore her environment, music instruments, and toys while we model and engage her following Ms. Linda’s cues and directions makes it such an incredible experience. One that we can use all week long! Our daughter’s communicative intent and imitation skills are increasing by leaps and bounds, she gets a huge smile anytime her Music Together songs come on or she hears the live session start and all her friends talking and starts to dance. It’s been great to work on her imitation skills and beginning imaginative play!
The entire Music Together Sing and Groove team is so welcoming, knowledgeable, and accommodating! We feel like part of the family already, as we join Ms. Linda in her virtual classroom each week! While nothing compares to face to face socialization, Ms. Linda makes sure we (parents) have time each week to learn from her, connect with each other, and even makes time for questions and fun connections for all at the end of each session. THANK YOU MTO Sing and Groove!
What a surprise it is to see my 15 month old connect to MusicTogether online classes. He roams his room while we attend the weekly classes wondering if he listens. One day during class he stopped what he was doing to dance and clap to a song he loved. It’s so neat to see him enjoy music and the classes. We’ve even played the music on a road trip to calm him. It was amazing to see him quiet down when he recognized the songs. We’ve marveled at this experience.
I just wanted to say how much my kids enjoyed the Spring Zoom Music Together Class. I am sure it was challenging to pivot your platform so quickly in such an uncertain time but I thought you did a great job to make an engaging class! The live class and recorded videos were a highlight of their week and my 2.5 year old was often asking for "more music". He even started singing the riding in the car song from over the winter this week which I had never heard him sing spontaneously on his own before. Thank you so much for all your hard work and we can't wait for the summer classes to start!
My daughter truly loves music and I think Music Together has been a huge part of that. We really appreciate everything you do to form special connections with the kids. We have been a long time Music Together family, and this year with Music Together Online, it has really helped keep very fun and constructive continuity in our lives. All the teachers and Music Together Sing and Groove have truly gone above and beyond to create not just engaging virtual content during the weekly classes, but have been so creative in adding extra materials through the week and additional ways to connect with the children. Our kids frequently burst out in song from collections new and old, and it's clearly left an indelible mark on their music development.
Thank you for all the effort and energy you put into the virtual events. Both my children have really improved over the past year.
This class has been a rock for my son during this challenging time. He gets truly excited about the class each week and loves just being there and doing musical stuff (sometimes singing, sometimes tapping, occasionally demanding MORE RAISINS from me). From when he started the class as an infant to now, it’s been really powerful to watch my son learn to do all these different musical skills.
