$170 plus $20 per additional sibling Newborns under 8 months are included with a sibling
All classes are at the Creator Collaborative Studio:

Our spring session includes an incredible collection of songs that will truly become the soundtrack to your lives.  This spring we'll sing, dance, and "Skip to My Lou," engage in a little dramatic play with "Meow!" and create jazzy rounds with "Hey, Ho, Nobody Home," just to name a few of the 25 songs and chants in the Triangle Song Collection. We will have an absolute blast singing and dancing together for 8 weeks.  You'll have access to the songs to continue the learning at home, a super fun, illustrated songbook to add to your collection, a teacher dedicated to you and your child's first music education experience, and a community of music-making families that you'll come to know so well.

SPRING RHYTHM KIDS® CLASSES
8 week session

 

The Jaguar Rhythm is based on drumming patterns typically played in Bomba music from Puerto Rico, an interplay where the drummer attempts to follow the dancer's movements. We'll explore the interaction between drumming and movement ourselves with the song "Bailen niños." We'll sing, dance, and drum along to the lively patterns of "Ayiko, Ayiko," a welcome song from Southern Ghana. And with "Ala Dal’ona," we'll sing, move, and explore the unique 6-beat phrase of this Lebanese folk song. Best of all, we'll get to experience the joys of being a "Jaguar in the Jungle"! All 20 selections in this collection have been chosen and arranged specifically to support each student's music development.

Children ages 4-7 - parent/caregiver optional (you may stay OR drop off your child)

This Summer we'll use the Tree Frog Collection to jump into Summer together!!
Our Rhythm Kids Summer camps are 75 minutes of NON-STOP music learning through physical activities, singing, dancing, crafts, teamwork and MORE!  We use the trees, the breezes and the open space of nature to make our music every day.  Through music, we build confidence, strengthen social bonds with peers, and foster creative expression.  Children will be pushed out of their comfort zones to try new things with their voices and bodies.  We play to everyone's strengths with a variety of activities.  And of course - we do LOTS of drumming with our djembe drums!  The Tree Frog Collection features rhythm patterns sourced from traditional Japanese music - the kids will be bringing these ancient rhythms to life!

Parents may stay OR drop off for this camp.  Children must be checked in/out by an adult.


$130 plus $50 per additional sibling
Classes location is TBD but will likely be in the park just north of the Whitefish Bay Public Library on Marlborough and Birch.

Covid-19 Risk Mitigation Policies

COVID-19/Cold/Flu/Illness Mitigation Policies

Risk mitigation policies:
Music Together North Shore is proud to have safely continued classes throughout the entire pandemic.  Whether online, outdoors or indoors, our risk mitigation strategies have kept young children safe.  We follow a more cautious approach, with the understanding that post-partum emotions run high enough.  If joining a music class can help one new parent feel integrated with their community, then we want that parent out in the community with us.  Therefore, we as a community of music-makers, assume the responsibility of doing everything we can to keep each other's babies as safe as possible, removing as many "what if's" from a worried new parents' shoulders. 

Following these risk mitigation strategies does NOT eliminate your risk of contracting/spreading Covid-19 or other illness.  All families participating in classes assume the risk of contracting Covid-19 or other illness and do so according to their own will.

  • NOTE:  Ms. Kristen is fully vaccinated for flu and covid.  She also takes a covid test whenever a sniffle comes on.

  • Our number one mitigation measure:  Any family with members of their household who are ill agree to not participate in class that week.  Illness includes any fever over 99.0, vomiting or diarrhea, cough or sore throat.

  • Families with members of their household with stuffy noses, nagging mild cough, or other mild illness that are NOT covid or influenza are welcome to participate, but we ask that if possible, you wear a mask to class to contain the spread of germs, or stay in your "family area" without wandering too much in class.  

  • Families are encouraged to set up a blanket in class and stay in their general area.  If you're comfortable with your child wandering around the room, please make sure other families are OK with a visitor near their blanket.  For babies-only classes, social distancing is not possible.  

  • Masks are optional in all of our classes. If your family is passing a cold around, please mask up in class or keep to your own space.

  • A Medify-Air Hepa air filter is running throughout class in our large, airy studio, cycling through the space every 30 minutes.

  • Hand sanitizing stations will be available throughout class.

  • Make-Up classes are very limited, but most families CAN get all 8 classes in by utilizing our Make-Up Scheduler.    There are no refunds for missed classes.  The "Bonus Week" will allow for potential make-ups for families who missed classes.

  • In the case of an entire class cancellation for weather or Covid-related closures, the class may meet via Zoom and/or be scheduled for make-up week.

  • What is Ms. Kristen cleaning instruments with?  Simple Green D Pro - recommended for food preparation facilities and listed on the EPA website as tested for Covid-19.  Instruments will be sprayed and left for 3 minutes, dried and then wiped with microfiber/water

  • Participants assume all risks associated with gathering during a pandemic and willingly participate.
