About Music of Savannah

Music Together of Savannah is a preschool music studio for children aged 5 months to 5 years. Parents or caregivers attend 45 minute classes once a week for 11 week sessions. A collection of music comes along with your enrollment.

Each new session brings new music and there are 9 wonderful Music Together collections in all. A typical class has 10 children and 10 parents, but grandparents and caregivers are welcome. Both parents are also welcome to attend a class.

Class begins in a circle group. Miss Kathy plays the guitar. Class proceeds to playing eggs, sticks, drums. Out comes the parachute for extra fun. Class proceeds to a dance or two – all on your feet.

Back to the floor for the play along ( a large collection of child safe instruments comes out and Music Together of Savannah has a full group play-along and social time). More singing and cute chants after that; then out come the scarves.

At the end of class, lights are dimmed, out come Teddy’s for a loving lullaby, goodbye song, and then a visit if you can stay.

Children are encouraged to touch and play the guitar or ukulele (with supervision) after class.

Your children are NOT required to sit still in class. Music Together believes that children will express themselves in a group class in their OWN way. Some may sit with parent, some may go to the middle to participate.
