Multi-age Parent-Child Classes
45-minute classes include songs, rhythmic rhymes, movement, and instrument play for your young children (birth through age 5) and you. Siblings may attend the same class! Activities are presented as informal, non-performance-oriented musical experiences -- developmentally appropriate for children and easy for parents and caregivers, regardless of their own musical ability. Songbook and 2 CDs are included, a different collection every semester! Fall, winter, and spring semesters meet for ten weeks, summer for six. Demonstration classes are free! Scroll down for full schedule.
Music Together Big Kids® Classes - no Big Kids™ class in summer, but will be back in the Fall!
Music Together Big Kids™ is a 60-minute class for 5-,
6-, and 7-year-olds. The program blends the elements of Music Together®
that parents and children love with new activities, skills, and
challenges that are developmentally appropriate for this age group.
Big Kids classes lay the foundation for Basic Music
Literacy, complementing music instruction in school or instrument
lessons, and leading to a lifetime of joyful music-making. The
curriculum includes solfège, solos and ensembles, folk dances, harmony
singing, vocal development, and drumming. In a safe, fun environment,
your child can experiment with new activities like conducting and
improvisation, story songs, and game songs.
Parents may, but are not required to attend the whole class with the child, and are expected to attend the last few minutes of each class for the lullaby and the goodbye song. Each
family receives a Big Kids songbook, CD, solfège cards, and HomePlay
activities, so that the entire family can continue the fun and learning
at home and parents can stay connected with what the child is learning
in class. (Insurance requires that at least one adult other than the teacher be present at each class. This will be worked out with the families of the enrolled children.)
Inter-generational Classes No Intergenerational classes offered at this time.Same as Multi-age Parent-Child Classes, but held at a Senior living facility, and we invite the Elders to join us in making and enjoying the music. Children and Elders interact, and can become like surrogate grandparents/grandchildren to each other.The Elders are a wonderful source of musical knowledge, talent, and nurturing, and love to have visits from little ones - smiles all around!
Tuesday and Saturday classes meet at First Baptist Church, 1330 Kasold, Lawrence, KS, in the music room.
Wednesday and Thursday classes meet at Oread Friends Meeting Hall, 1146 Oregon St., Lawrence, KS.
Daytime, evening, and weekend classes are available. Scroll down for schedule details. If the class you want is full, please sign up on the waiting list and/or let us know - a spot may open up or additional class sections may be added if demand is there!

A note to parents:
Our classes are geared towards providing a musical immersion experience for your children. Just like language learning, musical learning happens best in a full-immersion approach. To this end, we ask that you refrain as much as possible from talking in class, either with your spouse, other parents, or with your children. If you must communicate with your child or another adult, please try to do it non-verbally, or as a last resort, in a singing voice. Your children are especially attuned to your speaking voice (you may not think they are listening to you, but they are!!) and are easily distracted by it. And remember: Children learn more from what you do than what you say. Be a model of attentive music making.

Class size: Minimum class size is 6, maximum is 12 enrolled children. In the case of low enrollment, a class may be canceled, and enrolled families asked to switch to their second choice. If a switch is impossible, tuition will be refunded. For Big Kids, minimum is 5, maximum is 8.

If you cancel your registration 7 days or less prior to start of class, your tuition fee, minus a cancellation fee of $30, will be refunded. If you must drop after the first class meeting, a tuition refund will be issued, minus a cancellation fee of $50. After the second class meeting, no refunds will be given. The registration fee ($10.00) is non-refundable. In the case of a class being canceled by the Meadowlark Music Together director, full refunds will be given if the enrolled family is unable to attend a different class.
Snow days: If Lawrence schools are closed because of weather, morning Music Together classes will also be closed. Closure will be posted on the website by 8 am.
