Goshen College Music Center offers summer Music Together® classes in Goshen and Elkhart for young children

The Goshen College Community School of the Arts (CSA) is accepting registrations for Music Together® music and movement classes for young children from birth to age 5 and their families, to be held in June and July 2013. Classes will be held in Elkhart and Goshen.

Music Together® is a research-based method for developing basic music competence in children. It accomplishes this through singing and movement to songs and chants, drawing on a wide variety of cultures and styles. In Music Together®, children attend a weekly 45-minute class with a parent, grandparent or other caregiver, and receive a songbook and professional CD for home listening.

Classes in Goshen will be held starting June 4 at Waterford Crossing Senior Center. Classes will be offered Tuesdays and Fridays for six sessions between June 4-21. Class time is 10:30 a.m. and will be taught by a licensed Music Together instructor.

A second set of Goshen classes will be held starting July 8 at the Goshen College Music Center. These classes will be offered Mondays and Thursdays for six sessions between July 8- 25. Class times are 10 a.m., 5 p.m. or 6 p.m. and are taught by licensed Music Together instructor and Goshen resident Jenny Campagna.

Classes in Elkhart will be held starting June 10 at Prairie Street Mennonite Church. Classes will be offered Mondays and Thursdays for six sessions between June 10-July 1. Class times are 10 a.m. or 4:30 p.m. and are taught by licensed Music Together instructor and Elkhart resident Tracey Weirich.

Tuition is $100 for one child and includes all classes and materials. Additional siblings from birth to age 5 may join the class for only $20 each. Need-based scholarships are available to any family whose income qualifies them for free or reduced lunch in the Federal Free or Reduced Lunch program. The Goshen College Music Center is committed to making this program available to every family who would like to participate.
