Due to ongoing low enrollment and a change in teacher availability, we have had to make the difficult decision to cancel our Fall session. The impact of COVID-19 has caught up with us at last, and we can't sustain operations with online-only classes at this time. We are heartbroken to be in this position, and will miss our class families so much! We hope to return to online classes this winter, as long as we can guarantee enrollment and teacher availability. Please check back here or join our mailing list for updates. We'll be opening waiting lists in December for winter session classes starting in January. For more information about our current situation and ways to get onto our waiting list, please sign in and visit the Family Portal.
Our nine week Music Together® Online Spring Session starts April 21st. Sign up today for livestream classes, digital access to the Music Together Maracas song collection, access to activities and additional content only for registered families. Missed some classes? For this session only, we're welcoming families to sign up any time before May 22nd. Your tuition will be automatically pro-rated based on your start date.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Music Together, LLC has announced that all independent centers now offer online classes. We are so excited to bring the magic of our music program into your living room!
While Music Together Online classes do not replace the richness of our beloved in-class program, we are grateful that Music Together has thoughtfully adapted the program to allow flexibility during this crisis.
Stay tuned for more information about start dates, livestreaming platforms, and access to the new Spring music collection, Maracas.
In the meantime, log-in to your account here and check out the new Family Portal portion of our website! All families with accounts will be able to access a limited selection of resources. Actively enrolled families will be able to access online content, printable activities, and more. We look forward to singing together (virtually) with your family soon!

Summer is infull swing! We hope you're making music while you are out and about with your little ones this summer! Need some inspiration or some friends to sing with? Join us at our Summer Sing-Along at Elizabeth Park on August 1 and 22nd at 4:30pm. We'll set up a classroom under the big shade trees and sing our hearts out in the great outdoors. Invite a friend or two and bring a picnic blanket or towel. We'll piece them together to create one big surface for our singing circle. We'll bring the instruments and jam under the trees.

Greetings friends, we have some sad news to share regarding our spring session. We recently received word that the Bellingham Folk School will be closing at the end of April. This has been our home for the last 2 years, and we will miss hosting classes from this cozy space. We have not yet located a new home for Music Together by the Bay. Please email or message us if you know if any rental space available for $10-15 per class (1hr and 15 minutes with set-up and clean-up.) Due to this development, we will not be starting the Spring session in April as we usually do. Instead we will extend our current Winter session through next Saturday, April 14 for all classes, and host a special open house / singalong for all current, alumni, and prospective families on Saturday, April 21.
More details to follow soon....
Hello! Our Winter session will be starting in February. We hope you plan to join us! This semester, you’ll learn twenty-five songs and activities, including a rousing new rendition of the American folksong, “Alabama Gal”—great for dancing with a partner even when you’re not at a hoe-down! Our version of this traditional tune features banjo, harmonica, and cajon (a Peruvian box drum). The Bells collection also includes Music Together favorites like “Me, You, and We,” which is often one of the first songs little ones learn to sing, “Trot Old Joe,” and “The Bells of Westminster.” In addition to your weekly classes, your tuition includes materials for you to use at home, access to the online Family Music Zone, a family newsletter full of resources and music-making ideas, and a special musical PJ party to celebrate Sing With Your Child Month!
We're looking forward to a fun-filled fall singing and dancing and playing instruments together!
Demo classes are scheduled for Thursday, September 21st at 4:30 pm and Saturday, September 23rd at 9:30 am. Mark your calendars and invite a friend!
