Learning Music

Music together® Classes
at The Community Synagogue

Music Together is a delightful, joyous approach to music-making with your child. For infants, toddlers, preschoolers and the adults who love them, Music Together offers families an opportunity to sing, dance and play rhythm instruments in a relaxed, playful, non-performance-oriented setting.

It nourishes parents’ efforts to create a rich musical environment at home, regardless of their musical abilities. These 45-minute classes are specifically designed to accommodate the unique learning style of the very young while being highly engaging to their adult companions. All classes are mixed age and appropriate for children from birth through 5 years old. Tuition includes 2 CD’s and a beautifully illustrated songbook.
