Tuition

  • Autumn 2020 is an online 10 week program. The cost is $225.
  • Babies Workshops for babies 6 months and under: $150
  • 12 families registered per class. That number can change due to make-ups and families visiting to participate in the class as a demo.
  • In our attempt to interpret our program as something more meaningful than screentime, we strongly recommend that an adult accompany each viewer.
  • No refunds

Tuition includes

  • Weekly 30-minute Zoom classes taught by excellent, experienced, early-childhood music teachers
  • Access to a private Facebook page with daily LIVE mini-classes at 9:30am and lullaby moments at 7:00pm
  • Each family receives a beautifully illustrated songbook to inspire music-making beyond the class experience
  • Access to the Music Together® Family Music Zone which includes more ways to sing along and play along
  • A unique and diverse 25-song curriculum. Autumn, Winter and Spring collections repeat on a three year cycle. Because the Summer Song Collection has fewer songs, four additional songs will be added to the collection in order to supplement for our 10-week conversion. Summer Collections are compilations of Music Together favorites from the other collections. 
  • CD and Digital Download: Professionally recorded, colorful arrangements of all of the songs in the 10-week repertoire. For our Summer Online program, we will teach 4 additional songs not included in the songbook
  • Music and Your Child: A Guide for Parents and Caregivers – An informative and insightful parent education guidebook based on extensive and detailed research (given to first-time families).

Missing a class meeting and scheduling a Make-up

We have a very flexible program to allow families to make up classes when they have a sickness or conflict. Families can schedule a make-up for nearly any day of the week. We ask that families try to only schedule two make-ups per semester. If something comes up and you need a third, please write to request a third. To request a make-up please using the following process.

  • Mark the date that you'll be missing your class here
  • You can mark absences by logging in, clicking "My Account," and then "Schedule" in the upper menu. From there you can mark or unmark upcoming absences. 
  • Click on the make-up scheduler to see what's available.
  • All make-ups must be made in the same semester for the classes you are missing. Please do not request that any make-ups for missed classes be carried over into another semester. 
  • We have many classes scheduled at the same time and day at different locations. Please make sure you come to the correct location.

Rules of our Center

Food, Drinks, and Toys: Please put them away during class, preferably securely outside of the classroom.

No running.

Sick kids: If your child has had a fever (100 degrees or more) or vomiting within 24 hours of class, please keep him or her home. Please exercise common sense when it comes to communicable illness.

Phones and cameras: We try to create an environment where music is the focus. Please turn all phones off and put them away during class to prevent disruptions. Pictures may be taken in class during the final two weeks of the session.

Sing with us: Adult participation is vital. You are your child’s most important role model in class!

Let your child move freely: If a child is old enough to move independently, please resist the urge to move her arms for her, or force him to stay on your lap. Young children learn best when given the freedom to experience music in their own way.

Nannies and au pairs: They are role models for children, and their participation is of utmost importance. We want them to know how much we value them. Please discuss the importance of their role with your caregivers and help us communicate if there are language issues. And please share these rules with them.

Extra children: Older siblings are welcome free of charge on school holidays (all DCPS closure dates). But if you wish to bring an extra child to other classes, please ask your teacher. If the class size can accommodate another child, the cost will be $20.

Extra adults: Music-making should be a family experience. Additional adult friends and family members are always welcome in class.

Make-up classes: You may make up a missed class twice during the 10-week semester. Please schedule your make-up class on our website.

Switching classes: Sometimes friends have trouble being in the same class. You may switch to another class if this becomes a struggle you would like help with.

Inclement Weather: If I need to cancel a class I will post it on the homepage of this website, on my calendar page and also post on MotH. Since nearly everyone walks, I almost always have class. I will most likely attempt to hold class regardless of school closings for inclement weather. If the weather makes it too dangerous for you to attend please make the decision that is best for the safety of your family. If you have a scheduling conflict or a sickness during a particular week, please feel free to log in and visit the Make-Up link found on the Registration Page.
