Music Together Sing Shalom is a pilot program being developed in collaboration between The Jewish Education Project and local Music Together centers in NYC and Long Island. The weekly parent-child music classes are uniquely designed for Jewish families with young children using the internationally recognized Music Together early childhood music education program, enriched with songs from throughout the Jewish world. Each week, a community of families comes together to sing, dance, and play along in a class led by a trained Music Together teacher. The music includes multicultural traditional and original Music Together songs, supplemented with Jewish repertoire. You’ll learn lots of ways to interact musically with your child, supporting their development, strengthening family relationships, and helping them connect with the Jewish music tradition. And best of all, it’s fun for everyone! For families with children 0-5; siblings may attend together and infant siblings under 9 months attend free. Tuition includes:
- 10 weekly imaginative and engaging 45-minute classes
- Recordings and songbook to use at home
- Digital and printed resources
Parents enrolled in the pilot semester of Music Together Sing Shalom may be eligible to receive a $100 voucher for their participation in class evaluations and a focus group with other enrolled parents. Focus groups will take place in November or December 2017. Vouchers will be awarded after the fall 2017 semester ends.
