Our family music classes are on hiatus at this time, and we wish you all a safe and healthy season. Please join our Class Schedule Email List for updates about future class dates, schedules, and locations.

At Chickadee Music, most of our classes are Music Together Mixed Ages™ family music classes for babies, toddlers, and preschoolers with their parents or caregivers. Regular class sessions—Fall, Winter, and Spring—include eight or ten weekly, 45-minute classes with singing, movement, and instrument play. Summer sessions are between 6–8 weeks.

These musical activities are presented as informal, non-performance-oriented musical experiences that are developmentally appropriate for children of this age group (0–5 years) and easy for parents and caregivers, regardless of their own musical ability. The class models music-making as a group activity shared with others, and promotes a community approach that supports children’s music development. Our classes are inclusive, safe spaces for all families to explore music-making together. We encourage family participation—so crucial for a child’s learning—and do our best to keep you informed and supported each step of the way as your child’s music development unfolds.

Each semester you enroll in a class, you will receive a new illustrated songbook, CDs, newsletters, and a code giving you access to the Family Music Zone online.

We use a different song collection each semester on a three-year rotation, which means that your family can join us at any time during the year and fit right in without missing a beat! Your family will learn new songs and receive new materials each semester for four years if you choose to stay with us.
