How do outdoor classes work?*
A maximum of 9 families per class will bring their own blankets and instruments/props each week (more on that below) to have a 40-minute Music Together class!
The blankets will be 9 feet apart, to sing safely without masks. The teacher will mark the circle so everyone knows where to put their blankets down. We do expect that adults will actively make sure they and their children maintain proper safe distance when off the family blanket.
Families will bring their own instruments to class:
For Mixed Age or Rhythm Kids: We're offering an inexpensive "Family Kit" of either new ($15) or gently used ($10) instruments plus dancing scarves that you can choose to purchase at checkout when you register.
You could bring whatever you have at home instead, or in addition to the above. We have many suggestions of home items that can be substituted for "real" instruments, or you can make your own.
The Family Kit is intended to be for one adult and one child, since it's very important for adults to have instruments/props as well as their child. If you have two children, it's possible to purchase an additional half-set (one of each item).
For Rhythm Kids only: children will need to bring a drum to class, as well as other small percussion instruments. Each week, we'll let you know by email what to bring besides your drum. Look at the Rhythm Kids page (where the blue drum is) for suggestions of where/how to get a drum.
What to bring: Besides instruments/props and a blanket, we recommend bringing a portable potty, sunscreen, a sun hat, sunglasses, drinking water, and possibly even a sunshade (ex: umbrella, etc) since we may not always have shade on every part of the music circle.
*Complete information on how classes will work is in the policies and procedures document below.
Each Family Kit Contains:
2 pairs of
Two pairs of
(scarf and shaker colors will vary)
NOTICE: We now only have gently used instrument kits available at this time for fall.
A gently-used family kit is available for purchase for $10 at registration checkout. It is for one adult and one child. You can also purchase a half-kit for an additional child.
Requirement for Outdoor Classes: At checkout, 'Music Together Outdoors' families will be required to agree to our Policies and Procedures and a Liability Waiver, in order to attend outdoor class.
Please NOTE: You are responsible for ensuring that any adult who brings your child has read and understood the policies, procedures, and waiver prior to attending the class! Star Tom will not have time to instruct an adult who has not been fully informed of these agreements. To read them now, please click below:
