Join us for 10-weeks of Music Together classes. We are offering many ways for you to enjoy music with others: Outdoors + Online, Online Only, or in YOUR own backyard with your nano-pod.
Here's what's included for Fall 2020: (you can visit our classes page to learn more as well)
Outdoor + Online: 10 weeks: 6-weeks outdoor (45 min) + 4 weeks Online/Zoom (30 min)
From September 12-October 20 we will hold 45-minute classes outdoor in a yard/park in central La Crosse. Outdoor classes will be physically distanced with a maximum of 6 families. After 6 weeks of outdoor classes, we will meet for 4 weeks on Zoom. You will always have access to our pre-recorded 'on demand' classes throughout the term as well.
Online Only (MTO): 10 weeks: One weekly, 30-minute LIVE class via Zoom. Children have been enjoying seeing friends, submitting ideas to the group and singing, dancing, and playing how they want freely and safey at home. As one Mom recently said, "I am surprised at how well my 2.5 year old engaged in this format!" We do in our Zoom classes what we do in-person, encourage at-home music-making and will help your child grow in musicianship, confidence and spread joy!
Rhythm Kids Online: 10 weeks: One weekly, 45-minute LIVE class via Zoom. Children have been enjoying seeing friends, submitting ideas to the group and singing, dancing, and playing how they want freely and safey at home. As one Mom recently said, "It is so nice to have this class, the music, the connection with other children. I continue to be impressed with how much he learns in this format!". Children will play the djembe drum, sing, dance and jam to our semester collection containing music from around the world.
Your Backyard with your Nano-Pod: 10 weeks. Do you have a group of 4-6 families that you will be in a social POD with this fall? We will bring music class to your backyard! Time/Schedule TBD. The enrollment states 'Sundays' time TBD. Please include the name/address in the comments of who will be the host location of your backyard class. We will work together to schedule your class time. We will gather outdoors for as long as we can (6+ weeks), and then will move to online (approx 4 weeks).
Pre-recorded Fall Sing-Alongs: In addition to your LIVE weekly class, we record a 15-20 minute music class for you to watch 'on demand' that will be uploaded weekly for enrolled families. You can watch these on your time and repeatedly, they will remain up for the term.
Access to ALL Zoom Class Links: Need to miss a class? Want to attend another class? You will enroll in your once/weekly class, however you will have access to the ZOOM links of ALL our class times. Those of you that want to attend more than one class/week are able to do so--just drop in, no need to make an appointment. For consistency, we ask that you do attend your weekly/registered class. Other than that, you can enjoy attending the other classes times as you please.

What our Bebop & Bundles' MTO Families are saying:
Zoom Rhythm Kids Mom (5-9 years): It is so nice to have this class, the music time, and connection with kiddos his own age. I continue to be impressed with how much he learns in this format!
After (school) closed, I noticed he wasn't singing as much. He missed the music part of school. Your classes brought back his ongoing melody. He is now constantly singing. He loves the book and has it memorized. I was also amazed at how my 2.5 year old was able to connect with others via Zoom.
Thank you for making this all happen, it brings some normalcy to our crazy life!
We love love the content of the classes and so appreciate all your efforts to keep this going for us all!
The kids love seeing Ms. Reene and Ms. Kat!
Our daughter enjoyed the online classes. She definitely looks forward to it every week!
Thank you so much for providing hope and joy in dark times!
We so appreciate the safe, online format.
We hope we can continue to bring joy into your homes during these uncertain and stressful times.
