Fall Details

Fall Outdoor Classes
 
This fall Carmen will teach in-person classes at the front lawn of Convergence on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday morning at 10 am. Each class will be limited to 6 families, who will sit 6 feet apart from each other. Each family will stay in their self-contained "fishbowl" area. Temperatures will be taken with a non-contact thermometer before class and masks will be required for the adults during class and children over 2 when entering and leaving class. Instruments for class will be provided by MT Alexandria. Hand sanitizer and wipes will be available to use. In event of a weather cancellation, we will hold class instead on Zoom, no exceptions. There will be no in-person makeup classes or demo classes this session. Families who sign up for an outdoor class will also have access to all of our MTO offerings. Registered families will receive a full list of guidelines and instructions regarding outdoor class procedures.

 

Music Together® Online 

 

We are holding classes online for the Fall session, and hope you will join us in a time when we need music more than ever! Although we won’t be together in the classroom for Bongos, we look forward to helping you be enthusiastic musical models for your children at home. After all, you are their best teacher!

 

ONLINE CLASSES: This online session will run for 10 weeks and cost $175 per family, with no additional costs for siblings. Starting on September 14, we will hold LIVE 30-minute Zoom classes Monday through Saturday. We decided to use this platform, because it mimics the in-class environment most closely -- being able to see your child’s face and having them be able to see their friends too! Our schedule will be varied by day, but remain the same week to week. Unlike our in-person classes, you will not be limited to the one class you are registered for. In this new system, you can “attend” as many classes as you’d like per week.  We will also offer on demand content in our Bongos Facebook group and family portal, with musical crafts, lullaby time, dances and more! 

 

MATERIALS: Enrolled families will receive a Bongos collection book and CD and a code to unlock the collection on Family Music Zone. From there, you'll be able to download the songs from the collection and explore fun content created just for you. Families can also download the "Hello Everybody" app on the Apple or Google Play store and use their code to get the collection's music on a phone or tablet.
