About Summer Music & Movement 2020

We’re continuing fully online for summer 2020.

This summer, due to COVID-19, we will continue to offer our early childhood classes online with zoom.   We’ve been pleasantly surprised as to how well the online format is working.  If you would like to know more about what to expect please visit our Music Together Online school program page.

Health, Wellness & Learning through Play

Like all our early childhood classes, our online summer classes are designed to teach the way young children learn: through play.

  1. More About Summer Samplers

    During each online music class, your teacher will lead music activities for the whole family to sing, play, and jam along.  Your teacher will show you how to make everyday items like dish towels, pots, and stuffies into musical props. Even though your teacher is on the screen, each class has been designed as an active music-making experience for little ones and their grownups.

    Classes are appropriate for children under 5, but the entire family is welcome (and encouraged!) to participate in the musical fun.

    Pakachoag Summer Samplers provide a sampling of the School’s school-year Music Together program.  Children explore and develop pitch, through singing, and rhythm, through movement.  Parents serve as role models through their participation.  You do not need to have any particular skill set in order to participate!  Classes are designed to be fun and are based on a weekly curriculum that encourages music growth, exploration, and memory development through repetition of songs and activities.

    Unlike the school year program, we do not provide a song book, CD and learning guide for the shorter summer program.

  2. Ages

    All classes are for children aged birth through five years; an older class is also available upon request for children with and without special needs.

  3. Special Learners Class

    We offer a summer Special Learners Online class on Thursdays with Julie Holston.  Time TBA.

    This class is for children aged 6 to 10 with special learning needs.  Siblings of any age are welcome to attend with a special learner without any additional tuition.  Please email if interested.
