Music Together® Online Classes Available from The Music Quilt
Families in the Midlands Can Now Join Interactive Music Classes from Home
Columbia, SC, 26 February 2021 The Music Quilt is now offering Music Together® Online classes for families with children ages birth through five. Parents with little ones in Columbia and beyond can now experience the high-quality music and movement curriculum taught by the Music Quilt from the safety and comfort of their homes. Visit themusicquilt.org for the schedule and to register.
According to The Music Quilt director, Elizabeth Stewart, “At this challenging time, we know that parents are looking for educational and fun activities for their children. Making music is something the whole family can enjoy doing together, and it naturally supports children’s development. Plus, music connects us like no other activity, and right now, we need that connection more than ever! With Music Together Online, families become part of a virtual music community. We sing, dance, and make music in our online classroom each week, and parents are inspired to extend the fun and learning throughout the week, supported by our family materials, bonus activities, and connections in our private family Facebook group.”
Like all Music Together classes, Music Together Online is designed to teach the way young children learn: through play. During each live online music class, teachers from The Music Quilt lead activities for the whole family to sing, dance, and jam along to and demonstrate how to make everyday items like dish towels, pots, and stuffies into musical props. Even though the teacher is on the screen, each class is an interactive music-making experience for young children and their grownups.
Enrolled families receive a songbook and a code to download the award-winning music through Music Together’s Hello Everybody app, plus an invitation to a private online community for The Music Quilt families. Classes are appropriate for children under 5, but the entire family is welcome (and encouraged!) to participate in the musical fun.
Registration for Music Together Online at the Music Quilt is now open, and new families are welcome to join at any time. Visit themusicquilt.org to learn more and register.
