     MARACAS COLLECTION
     10-WEEK SPRING SESSION
     MUSIC TOGETHER ONLINE
     $160.00 per family
     APRIL 6-JUNE 10
 
 
 
We are now “safer at home”, but that doesn’t mean we can’t still make music together!
 
Join us for 10-weeks of virtual music making! Ms. Kat & Ms. Reene will visit your home through Zoom, a fantastic online meeting tool that allows all participants to see one another. Here's what's included:

 

Bi-weekly classes:

Because children need shorter bursts of screen time, our classes will meet bi-weekly for 25 minutes each (for a total of 50 minutes each week). These sessions will not be recorded and families will be able to see one another. At times, children/families will be able to submit ‘ideas from the group’ to make the time together interactive---for the rest of the time, you will be on mute and will just hear your teacher. We ask that a parent or caregiver be present to assist in the interactive nature of the class.

Sunday Stories & Songs:

In addition to your bi-weekly class, Ms. Kat and Ms. Reene will rotate hosting a pre-recorded 15-minute Stories & Songs session that will be uploaded on Sunday evenings for enrolled families. Parents do not need to participate in these classes and they will be available for you to replay at times convenient to you (similar to our YouTube/Facebook Group videos now).

Class Times:

Classes will begin on April 6 and run through June 11. As of now, we are moving from social distancing to “shelter in place” or as Tony Evers describes it here in Wisconsin, “safer at home”—this will likely remain true for most or all of this session. If we can begin to gather in person as a group, we will do so. Remember, we will meet 2x per week. Morning classes---no need to shower! Come in jammies---who cares! Honestly, these are not recorded and we just want to hang out together and sing. If we have room for families to drop into another session, I will let you know! 

Monday/Wednesday: 8:45-9:10 AM  (Kat)

Monday/Wednesday: 9:30-9:55 AM (Kat)

Tuesday at 5PM/Saturdays at 8:45 AM: Kat

Tuesday/Thursday: 8:45-9:10 AM (Reene)

Tuesday/Thursday: 9:30-9:55 AM (Reene)

INTRO TO OUR NEW FORMAT: during your scheduled class time next week (March 29-April 1), we will be holding online info sessions and a brief sing-along to get you comfortable and acquainted with the new online format before classes begin April 5. Ms. Reene and I will be available to answer questions, provide parent education, say hello to your children, and give you a sense of how our classes will be structured. People that try love it--it's fun to connect at home with other families...and the music comes right to you!

Maracas Songbook and CD

Ms. Kat will have the songbook and CD available for pick up at her home. There will be a bin outside her house (along with Clorox wipes) for whomever picks up to wipe the lid clean. If you prefer NOT to pick up your songbook/CD, Kat will email you the code for use on the app and Family music zone and save your items for an in-person meeting (when this is all over).

Dates for material pick up: will be sent upon enrollment (and by appointment as necessary, just text or call: 608-738-1609)

Pre-recorded material: If you haven’t checked out some of our pre-recorded sessions on the Facebook Group/YouTube (find us at Bebop & Bundles Families on FB), I recommend you do so. The children love it and it’s been so much fun to connect. I believe it will only be better LIVE! Those short, pre-recorded music sessions will slowly go away as we transition to MT Online. 

The $75 sibling fees from our spring session will be refunded/waived. One fee: $160.00

 

While it’s not ideal, these times call for us all to be flexible and creative. I understand that some of you may be under financial uncertainty or strain--please contact me if this is the case, as I do not want cost to prevent any families from participating.

 

As a personal side note, I have to tell you that my son, Eamon (4, and whom some of you know sits like a lump in his MT class) has been watching me record these mini music sessions over this last week and has not stopped singing. Truly, he has been singing the songs at home from the videos ALL.WEEK.LONG. It is one of the reasons that I decided to follow Music Together Worldwide's guidance and move our spring session online. 

 

A center in Modena, Italy has, of necessity, been conducting online classes since February, with great success. I believe MT centers across our country will be united in this way as well very soon. We are excited to bring the music right into your home! 

We hope we can continue to bring joy into your homes during these uncertain and stressful times.
