Music Together® - Mixed age

This is the essential Music Together class, one that a child can attend from birth through kindergarten -- and through all nine song collections. This basic class follows the recommendations of child development researchers -- grouping children of a variety of ages because this fosters natural, family-style learning. Younger children enjoy watching and imitating older ones, older children learn by leading younger ones, and adults are happy because the children in the family can go to class together. Each child participates at his or her own level in singing, moving, chanting, listening, watching, or exploring musical instruments. Any caregiver -- parents, grandparents, nanny -- can bring the children. The whole family is welcome for this important family music experience, and any caregiver - parents, nanny, grandparents- can bring the child(ren) to class. During the Fall, Winter and Spring trimesters, classes meet once a week for 9, 10 or 11 weeks. During the summer, classes meet once a week for 6 weeks. 

Rhythm Kids (4-8)

Our Rhythm Kids Online class is just the thing to keep your older child making music. Designed specifically for you and your 4-8 year olds, these active classes tap into how children this age are wired to learn, with music games, animal rhythm stories, and lots of stomping-flying-climbing fun.

In each weekly class, you and your child will drum, sing, move, and play to rhythms inspired by musical traditions around the world, from West African Gahu, to Japanese Taiko, to Brazilian Samba, to name a few. As they learn to think and create like a musician, they’ll also gain valuable skills they’ll take to the school classroom (and beyond!): confidence, focus, leadership, cognitive flexibility, and more.

Classes include:

  • immersion in the musical language of many cultures
  • playful music games with rules
  • deep exposure to complex, fun, and rockin' music
  • rich, creative experimentation and expression, improvisation, and innovation

During our 10-week semester, you'll be also able to join our Facebook live events and grandparents days.

Your child can use a drum, laundry basket, or box for class.  Once classes begin, you might like to purchase a Djembe Drum for your child. We recommend one of three styles offered through Mindy's Music.

Canta y Baila Conmigo®

Take a journey into Spanish language and its cultures through the magical world of music.

Canta y Baila Conmigo® is a unique curriculum with dual, complimentary goals of music education and language immersion. Designed for beginners and native speakers alike, Canta y Baila Conmigo creates a playful, interactive atmosphere where language learning is integrated naturally and organically in the musical experience.

Canta y Baila Conmigo is a unique program where young children and their adults experience another culture and language firsthand while exploring and developing musically in an age-appropriate manner.   

Families attend a 10-week semester of 30-minute classes via Zoom. They will receive a songbook and CD each semester to continue the singing, dancing and learning at home.


In addition to your weekly live class, families will also have access to a robust interactive online experience called Family Playground! There are 8 weeks of “Playdates” with Maddie leading the collection. One video will be released to you each week so families don’t move ahead too quickly.

The Canta y Baila Conmigo Family Playground includes:

  • Sing-along videos with Maddie

  • Downloadable coloring and activity pages

  • Craft activities related to the songs being sung

  • Video messages/songs from CyBC teachers around the country

  • Spanish lessons for parents and older kids
