Midcoast Music Together starts fall semester

Aug 29, 2014
Midcoast Music Together director and teacher Jess Day is pictured working with a mixed age class.

Midcoast Music Together’s fall session of classes will start Monday, Sept. 15, with classes for infants through age 5 and their families being offered in Rockland, Rockport and Belfast. In addition to the mixed aged classes, there will also be a special babies class for infants newborn to 8 months, as well as a grownup guitar class that teaches parents and caregivers the songs from the program’s song collection to play at home on guitar.

Based on the recognition that all children are musical, Music Together classes have been designed to engage children of all ages, making it easy to join in as a whole family with the musical activity continuing the learning at home and within the context of daily life. Fun and informal, these classes incorporate traditional, original and international songs, chants and finger rhymes, as well as various instruments and props.

Free demo classes are being offered in coming weeks Megan Rogers will lead a free mixed-age demo class Monday, Sept. 8, at 9:15 a.m. at Rockland Public Library; and Midcoast Music Together Director Jess Day will offer a free babies class Friday, Sept. 19, at 11:30 a.m. at the Picker Family Resource Center in Rockport.

The 10-week semester will offer classes at Rockland Public Library, the Picker Family Resource Center, Bay Chamber Music School in Rockport and Waterfall Arts in Belfast at various times of the day and week. For more details on class times and days available, and to register for the free demo classes, visit midcoastmusictogether.com or call Day at 593-6645.
