City Kids Music

City Kids Music City Kids Music is an early childhood music program offering Music Together classes to the Washington Heights/Inwood/East Village community since 1997.
(1)

Music Togetherยฎ began in 1987 as an educational project of the Center for Music and Young Childrenยจ of Princeton, NJ. The program, which is designed for children birth (yes, birth!) to four years, is based on the premise that all children are musical and have the same innate ability to learn music as language. At Music Together we believe that music ability is as much a basic life skill as walking and talking and that all children can learn to sing in tune, keep a beat, and participate with pleasure and confidence in the music of their culture. We nurture the child's natural enthusiasm for music and movement as we sing, dance, chant, and play instruments in an informal setting that will enrich their musical environment and guide them towards a lifetime of music making enjoyment. City Kids Music has been a part of the Washington Heights/Inwood/East Village community since 1997. We are extremely grateful to be in such thriving neighborhoods with so many families that are enthusiastic about music, family and fun!

Hello, Everybody,

We are living in very weird times and due to the current health situations, City Kids Music will have Zoom class for the Fall Session. Trial Classes for Old and New Families.

Since many people are hesitant to try the Zoom format, I invite you all to take a trial class before committing. We have trial classes on the following dates and times:

Wednesday, August 19th at 1:30pm
Monday, August 24th at 11:30
Monday, August 24th at 1:30
Monday, August 31st โ€“ 10am and 11:30
Just email [email protected] to RSVP for a Trial class.

Fall Details:

The Fall session runs through September 7th - December 7th (No Class Thanksgiving Week).
Classes will be held on Zoom.

This Fall we offer unlimited bonus zoom classes for all enrolled families -- Mix and match classes to fit your schedule! And enjoy free extra classes on us! See how many classes you can enjoy in the Fall. Repetition is wonderful for children this age and seeing the class multiple times a week will reinforce the lessons.

You will receive your illustrated songbook and CD shipped directly to your home, along with your digital download code.

Since I am not paying rent for classes, lower tuition is available. Tuition for the Fall Session will be $250. There are no sibling rates for Zoom classes.

If you are unemployed due to the pandemic and are suffering economic hardship, reach out to me privately for scholarship opportunities.

Best wishes for a safe and enjoyable rest of the summer season! Let's all do our best to keep everyone healthy, so we can meet again in person soon!

This class is designed for ages 5-8 years of age. Each week we study a different famous artist. Children will receive a brief history of the style and life of the artist. Now that the children have a true connection to the artist, it is time to introduce the techniques which made the art revolutionary. After learning the inspiration and techniques of each Master, the children are ready for the real fun. Young artist will create their own Masterpieces in the style of the artist that we are studying that week! The class is appropriate for 5 โ€“ 8 years of age. The cost for the session is $240. (No sibling fees for zoom classes, if you have multiple children).

and
Wednesdays at 4pm - September 9th โ€“ December 2nd โ€“ No class on November 25th for Thanksgiving Week

We will be offering the opportunity to take a trial class to see what the art classes are like.

Washington Heights families, I have decided to do a short six week Zoom Music Together class for the summer. I feel like this will be the norm until January and I want to set the pace for the Fall. All information is on www.citykidsmusic.com.
Also, if any families are interested, I would like to do a six week art class, too. I would give you a list of materials you would need and we would do a social distance class. PM me if you are interested. Stay safe, healthy and wear a mask :)

Hello, Everybody,

I just wanted to let you know that our Fall registration is open. Our classes start on September 9th and will feature our Flute Collection. I also have some exciting announcements. Brianna Brett has agreed to join our staff for the Fall session. She was a former Music Together mom who has a background in Musical Theatre. Brianna loved the program so much, she took the certification training. She subbed for me when I had strep and she got rave reviews from all my classes. Also, Kathleen Kilbane will be teaching a Canta y Baila Conmigo Class. Music Together has worked in conjunction with this popular Spanish program and we can now bring it to Washington Heights.

Canta y Baila Conmigoยฎ is an innovative music and movement curriculum in Spanish for children 0-5 and their caregivers. It has the support materials and similar class structure to Music Together, but with Spanish music and Spanish interaction. For people who are new to Spanish or old timers, this family class promotes cognitive, language, motor, and social skills.

I will also be bringing back the Infantโ€™s Only class in the Fall. Music Together offers a Babies Class for families with infants from birth through eight months of age. In this class, the activities are specifically designed to teach you how to support music development in infancy and how to connect with your baby through music using methods such as "purposeful touch," "sound-layering," "dancing for baby," etc. It is also an excellent opportunity for new parents to meet other new parents.

Our Fall Session is our longest session (12 weeks). Tuition is $350 for the Fall session, $175 for a second sibling and children 8 months and under come at no charge with a paid sibling. If you register by September 1st and pay with a check, you will receive $20 off tuition price.

We are having a free demonstration on September 7th at 10am at the Hebrew Tabernacle which will feature both Music Together and Canta y Baila Conmigo music. To join us for this demo, please RSVP at [email protected]

Please let me know what questions you have and I hope you can join us for the Fall. Enjoy the rest of the summer and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
