Musical fun for the whole family

All children are musical. Music Together's classes are tons of fun and can help your child develop to his/her full musical potential. Children age birth through five and their parents/caregivers experience songs, instrument play, and movement activities in a relaxed, playful setting with no performance pressure. Participants also receive a songbook, parent guide booklet, semi-annual newsletter, and two professionally recorded CDs for more family fun at home.

Winter semester classes run for eight weeks, Jan. 14 through March 4. Each semester features a new collection of songs and activities. This winter we will boogie to the Drum Collection.

Registration for winter semester is now in progress. Save money and secure your family's spot in class by registering early. Scholarships are available for those who can't afford tuition. Want to see what a class is like? Call now to reserve your space in a free class. To register or get more information, call SuZan Pearce at (928) 638-2232.
