Music Together Registration
The Auburn music school began registration on Dec. 3 for its winter session of Music Together classes, which start Monday, Jan. 7.
The school will have weekly 45-minute classes for newborns to 5-year-olds accompanied by a parent, grandparent or caregiver. More than 15 classes will be offered, Monday through Saturday mornings and on Thursday afternoons.
A Music Together class is a “community of families sharing songs, instrument play, rhythm chants and movement activities in a relaxed, playful, non-performance-oriented setting. Infants, toddlers, and preschoolers participate at their own levels in family-style classes of mixed ages.”
In addition, a new program this winter is “Music Together for Special Learners” for ages 5 to 10 (with and without special needs) on Mondays from 4 to 4:45 p.m.
Limited financial aid is available. For more information or to register, call 508-791-8159 or visit www.pakmusic.org.
