We know these times are hard and are effecting us all in different ways. We are learning how to do things different ways and figuring out how to be parents with all these changes and restrictions. Music Together Online brings a little musical fun and joy into your home every week, it’s an opportunity to sing and dance and create some valuable memories and bonding time with your child. Give it a try and bring the joy of music into your home! Our 10 week Winter session is starting Feb 2, 2021. We will have classes via Zoom on Tues and Wed mornings at 10am. We will also have 5 scheduled Pajama/Evening classes on Monday and Thursday evenings at 6:30pm throughout the session. Our sessions are recorded and posted for a limited time for registered families to be able to rewatch a favourite session or catch a session they missed.
With Music Together Online, the teacher you know and love from Music Together of the Chinook Wind will bring music class to your living room. Like all our classes, the program is designed to teach the way young children learn: through play! Your whole family will have a blast singing, dancing, and jamming along to Bongos songs during weekly live online/interactive classes. Digital family resources, including recordings and bonus activities through our award-winning Hello Everybody app, plus a hard-copy songbook, will inspire you to make music all day.
Fall’s Online Session will Start Oct 5.
Live online Classes through Zoom will be Every Tues and Wed Mornings at 9:30am. This semester we will be having 5 bonus Pajama classes on scheduled Evenings at 6:30pm!
With Music Together Online, music class comes to your living room! Every week for ten weeks, Music Together of the Chinook Wind’s teacher JoDana will lead your whole family in fun music activities using songs from the Maracas Song Collection. Plus, you’ll get a digital recording, songbook, and bonus activities so the musical fun can continue all week long! It’s the perfect way to deepen your little one’s music education from home.
Beginning April 20th, families enrolled for our Spring session will have access to:
- Two 20-minute interactive virtual classes via zoom. Zoom is an online video platform, and is more interactive than any other interface I’ve experienced so far. Instead of going to your class once a week, your class will come to you, via computer, tablet or phone 2 times a week (so if you can’t make one of the times you will be able to join in the other, or catch them both if you can!)
- Two weekly Facebook LIVE events via a private Facebook Group, “Maracas MT Chinook Wind Families”, you’ll be able to watch the live videos here anytime that suits your schedule after we’ve posted them.
- Downloadable family resources (colouring pages, musical games etc.)
- Access to videos from our very own Uncle Gerry (from the recordings), exclusively for enrolled families.
We at Music Together of the Chinook Wind are keeping abreast of the local conditions and are committed to the health and safety of your families and our community. Our current session is currently on pause, and we are looking at bumping our spring start date. We are watching this situation carefully, and plan to resume classes and start our spring session when we are confident it is the right time, and safe. Please stick with us, and rest assured we are doing our best to follow the current situation, and will keep you fully informed of our plans moving forward.
We are committed to supporting you in making more music at home now more than ever! We have plans in the making for some online musical play sessions, for currently enrolled families and families who are enrolled in our spring session watch for an invite to join our private facebook group.
Registration for spring will be opening in the coming week after we have finalized new details with our locations.
Music is a stress reducer and a powerful tool in your parenting toolbox. We are hoping we can all stay musically inspired if we are stuck at home. Keep singing and dancing and watch for our spring registration opening soon.

Come Sing, Dance, and Jam Along with us!
In this season’s Flute Song Collection, we’ll get out our instruments and play along to the jazzy new original “Blue St. Pat,” search the “Pawpaw Patch,” and climb aboard the “Train to the City.” And those are only three of the twenty-five songs you’ll learn, which include Music Together originals and traditional songs. In addition to your weekly classes, tuition includes a new songbook with beautiful colour illustrations for each song, a newsletter full of resources and music-making ideas, and online access to the music and bonus activities.
Music Together conducts Teacher Training workshops for those who are interested in becoming a Music Together teacher. These workshops are well-known and respected as a perfect introduction to the world of Early Childhood Music. These workshops also include three demonstration classes. Here’s where you come in.
As a family that is local to this workshop, I am pleased to extend this invitation to a FREE demonstration class that will take place in Cochrane during our upcoming workshop. There will be a group of teachers-in-training watching the class, who would love to ask you some questions about your experience with Music Together. These classes are a great opportunity to bring an older sibling or significant other to class, make-up a missed class, or just spend more time making music with your child!
Classes are on July 25, 26 and 27
Cochrane Alliance Church
902 Glenbow Dr. Cochrane, AB

Join us for the Tambourine Song Collection this Spring!
You’ll learn twenty-five Music Together songs and activities you can recreate at home. Your children will experience the contrast between galloping, slowing, sleeping, then jumping up with delight to gallop again in “See the Pony Galloping.” The whole class will treasure the opportunity to see one of the daddies’ best monkey impressions during “One Little Owl”. In addition to your weekly classes, your tuition includes materials for you to use at home and a family newsletter full of resources and music-making ideas, and online access to the curriculum through the Hello Everybody app.
The new edition of the Tambourine family songbook series is debuting this spring! Each song is brought to life through colorful and engaging illustrations by award-winning artist Jaime Kim and children’s book illustrator Gerald Kelley. The new book will inspire your family to play with music all week long. You’ll find it helpful to learn the lyrics, as a jumping-off point for creative storytelling, and to learn more about the songs you’re singing in class. Your child may enjoy snuggling with you and singing through the whole book at once—or opening to a page to tell you what song they want to sing!
This upcoming session, your little ones will love jumping and hiding in “John the Rabbit” and “Sneak and Peek.” You’ll all be mesmerized by the beautiful lullaby, “Arroró, mi niño” and enjoy the catchy rhythms of “Jim Jam Drummer.” In addition to ten weekly classes, tuition includes audio recordings to play at home and on the go, a colorful illustrated family songbook, and resources with bonus music-making ideas to try at home.
We will have classes on Monday mornings in the NW, Wednesday mornings in the SE and Friday mornings in Cochrane.
