Class Descriptions

Music Together® Online

During these unprecedented times with the Covid-19 virus around we are unable to meet in person for our group Music Together classes. We are therefore meeting online this summer through two 23-minute video classes per week over a course of 8 weeks. These videos will be posted to our Social Sprouts private facebook page and through a google classroom if you are not on Facebook. Our Social Sprouts page gives our enrolled members a way to connect and interact with each other since we are mostly stuck in our homes. We will guide you through all of the Music Together songs in our new collection just as we would in a regular class. We will sing, dance, and play instruments that you have at home. In this online package there will be also be extra music activities as well in the Family Portal of the Family Music Zone at www.musictogether.com. We will provide you the songbook and cd from our newest collection so you can have it to enjoy at home. This session is a temporary set of classes so that your family can bring The Joy of Family Music® home during difficult times.

Basic Music Theory For Beginners

Our Online Basic Music Theory Course for Beginners will be 30 minutes long, once a week, over an 8 week period. It is open to grown-ups who never learned how to read or understand music, to Music Together graduates with parental assistance, and to anyone who wants to learn. We are still determining if Zoom, Google Meet, or pre-recorded classes will work best for this course. Once registered, you will receive an email with specific directions on how the class will be proceed. Participants will learn how to read notes in different clefs, write music, determine intervals, learn note values and rhythms, distinguish dynamics, learn key signatures, distinguish between melody and harmony, and apply these concepts to different instruments. Access to a piano keyboard of some sort is preferable but not necessary.
