Music Together® Class Tuition

Introducing Music Together® Online!

Music Together has been connecting families for over 30 years through live music-making, instrument play, dancing, singing, and creating a community in every classroom around the world. Since we have been forced to socially distance ourselves, it’s more important than ever to replace that social atmosphere with engagement at home. Let us bring The Joy of Family Music®® into your home, keeping the Together in Music Together. Please join us for a new and exciting way to experience your music class and Ms. Tanya with HalfSteps at Home and Music Together Online. 

Beginning April 13th, each week you'll get:

  • One 20 to 25-minute Zoom class with Ms. Tanya (Mixed Ages and Babies Only will be offered. See below for Canta y Baila Conmigo® info!)
  • One 15 to 20-minute ON DEMAND video to interact with at your convenience (similar to the Music Time videos)

Your tuition also includes:

  • Access to a private Facebook Group and password-protected portal page on the HalfSteps website, which will both offer additional videos, including parent education, musical crafts, lullabies, song covers, and more.
  • Printables and other downloadable family resources, including coloring pages, musical games, and more.
  • Maracas Song Collection materials (songbook, CD, download code) delivered directly to your door, if restrictions allow (otherwise materials will be delivered once the restrictions have been lifted).
  • Maracas Song Collection download code emailed upon Zoom class confirmation.
  • Access to your music through the award-winning Hello Everybody App

This package of online music experiences and resources create a comprehensive music-learning program for young children of the highest caliber: just as you would expect from Music Together. 

A note about screen time:

We know screen time isn’t generally recommended for this age group, but here’s the difference: YOU! When children stare at a screen and passively receive information, they don’t take it in the same way nor do they learn in the same way as when they have the active participation of a caregiver or parent. SO, just like in our classes, you’re still the most important part. Your teacher will be on the screen, but it is truly the interaction of the parent/caregiver with the child that is going to continue their music development! We will give you lots of fun activities and ideas to do at home! Also, please remember, children do not generally sit still! We don’t expect them to do so in class, so please don’t expect them to at home! You just keep making music with the teacher on the screen, follow along, and have faith your child is getting the usual ton of info and education from your involvement, even if they move about the room.

Also introducing Canta y Baila Conmigo Online

We will also be offering Canta y Baila Commigo Online! Tuition includes one weekly on-demand lesson video with either Ms. Tanya or Ms. Pamela teaching. It also includes exclusive access to the online family "playspace", which allows your family to stay active and connected while enjoying the Spring 2020 De colores collection at home together. We are calling this playspace the CyBC Family Playgound because there will be content for the whole family to enjoy!

The main feature of our Playground will be the bi-weekly Playdate modules, which will include a combination of the following:

  • Sing-along videos with program creator Maddie Welch
  • Messages and songs from your local CyBC teachers
  • Spanish lessons for grown-ups and older kids
  • Downloadable coloring and activity pages
  • Craft and project ideas related to our songs
  • Bonus interactive games and contests

New Playdate modules will be added to the Playground twice a week throughout the semester.

 

Activities and videos posted on the Playground are designed to accompany your Spring De colores songbook and audio recording. As part of your tuition, you will receive a songbook with CD and download code, which will allow you to stream your music. You will also receive a new 15-20 video from Ms. Tanya and/or Ms. Pamela each week, to be watched on demand.
