Your class fee includes weekly 45-minute classes for your child (and YOU!), plus two copies of a CD with more than 30 fun songs and chants, a beautifully illustrated songbook with the complete sheet music for all songs, and a parent guide and DVD for new families with more information on the research behind the program.
Below is our schedule of upcoming classes. If you have a suggestion for a class day, time, or location, please let us know. We are happy to add a class day or time if we get enough interest.
Do you have a Moms group? We can add a class just for you! We need a minimum of 6 children enrolled. Email us for details.

This is the essential Music Together class, one that a child can attend from birth through age five, with nine song collections. This basic class follows the recommendations of child development researchers—grouping children of a variety of ages because this fosters natural, family-style learning. Younger children enjoy watching and imitating older ones; older children learn by leading younger ones; and adults are happy because the children in the family can go to class together. Each child participates at his or her own level in singing, moving, chanting, listening, watching, or exploring musical instruments. Any caregivers—parents, grandparents, nanny—can bring the children. The whole family is welcome for this important and fun family music experience.
Join seasoned teacher Annie Keeling Friedman for this one-semester Babies Class for families with infants from birth through eight months of age. In this class, the activities are specifically designed to teach you how to support music development in infancy and how to connect with your baby through music using methods such as "purposeful touch," "sound-layering," "dancing for baby," etc. And since our Babies Class uses the same song collections as our other classes, you will experience a seamless transition as your baby grows into our mixed-age, in-school, and "Big Kids" classes.
