See what our families are saying about Music Together Online!
With Music Together Online, your favorite teachers from Music Together of Bay Ridge will bring music class into your home. We may not able to gather in the same room, but we're keeping the music and learning going! Like all our classes, the program is designed to teach in the way young children learn: through play and parental involvement! Your whole family will have a blast singing, dancing, and jamming along to Maracas songs during live interactive classses.
More passive screen time? NO! Active musical fun with adult participation!
It’s the perfect way to deepen your little one’s music education from home.
Your four-week renewable family subscription (no extra charge for siblings) includes:
-- One weekly 30-minute live interactive Zoom class with teacher of your choice and a limited class size

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.
We understand that there is legitimate concern about screen time for very young children, but here’s the difference: YOU!
With Music Together Online, the active participation of the parent or caregiver is key. This is a very different experience for the child than staring at a screen and passively receiving information or entertainment.
Just like in our in-person classes, YOU'RE still the most important part! Your teacher will be on the screen, but it is truly the interaction of YOU with the child that is going to continue their music development!
Just as in our in-person classes, we don't expect your child to sit still or "pay attention" to what's on the screen.
If the adults keep making music with the teacher on the screen, and have a good time, your child will soak in the experience in their own way, in their own time, and show you later what they have been taking in. We'll be giving you lots of fun activities, ideas, and songs to inspire musical play at home all day long.
