Music Together® - Sing Shalom 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.

Sing Shalom Fridays at 9:15 am 10-week sessions
For families with young children (birth - age 5). Each class includes songs from one of Music Together’s celebrated song collections.  Families will learn ways to interact musically with their children, while supporting their development, strengthening family relationships, and helping them connect with the Jewish music tradition. Sing Shalom teachers offer parents, grandparents, and caregivers, a unique window into Jewish culture, introduce Hebrew words, and share information about other community events happening locally.    

Music Together® - Wednesdays at 9:15 am, 10:15 am & 11:15 am 10-week sessions
45 minute classes teach a new song collection each semester geared to infants, toddlers & pre-schoolers. Music is learned through developmentally appropriate activities that support the unique learning styles. Classes include instruments, rhythm chants, movements and more.
