Music Together of Decatur Online Zoom Classes!

Through our highly interactive online Zoom classes, your Music Together of Decatur teacher will bring the music and activities that you know and love right into your home. Along with online classes where you can see your friends' faces, enrolled families will receive a CD full of all the music we'll be singing and dancing to in class, a digital download code so you and other caregivers can access the music from any device, a delightfully illustrated songbook to snuggle up with at home, and additional activities to enjoy at home.

What to Expect:

Just as in a regular Music Together of Decatur class . . . your class will be limited in size to allow everyone the oppportunity to really connect and build community. To this end, your class will begin with 15 minutes of open time before your teacher begins the Hello song. During this time, you'll be able to catch up with friends (old and new), chat with your teacher, and settle in to this new interactive experience.

Just as in a regular Music Together of Decatur class . . . grownups will actively participate with their children. Our online classes are not designed to be watched by your child alone. You might be surprised to hear that you are your child's most important music teacher right now-- and it doesn't matter whether or not you consider yourself musical. Young children develop dispositions for certain behaviors-- including learning to love making music-- by observing and imitating their loved ones. Simply by participating enthusiastically during class and playing musically throughout the week, you'll give your child everything she needs to become a life-long music maker.

Just as in a regular Music Together of Decatur class . . . children's responses will depend on their most dominant learning style and temperament as well as their age and developmental level. Some might follow the teacher right away, others will stay close to Mom or Dad, observing or listening. Some might crawl or toddle around, others will be stimulated by the music and respond more actively, running, jumping, or dancing. All are perfectly natural responses to the new, musically rich environment. Try to stick with it-- even if you find yourself tapping your lap alone in front of the TV. The best thing you can do is model for them by singing and dancing along with us.

Music Together of Decatur Online is a wonderful way to set aside some structured time to play with your little one and observe, week by week, how she is demonstrating new skills on her way to becoming a musician, or astronaut, or epidemiologist! Besides, it is scientifically proven that singing-- especially singing with others-- can reduce your stress levels, and we all need that almost as much as we need toilet paper now!

NO SHOWERS NECESSARY! You are welcome to attend in your jammies. Life is messy. It's okay for you to be messy, too!
