    Class sizes vary from a minimum of 5 to a maximum of 12.
  10. Do parents stay in the class?
    Parents/caregivers remain and participate during the 30 and 45 minute Music Together® classes. Please provide childcare for your other children. Babies four months and younger may attend the Mixed Ages class free with their registered older sibling.
  11. What is Family Music Night?
    A music class designed for the whole family. Family Music Night is scheduled only at the end of the Fall & Spring sessions and will take place at the TCU Ballroom.
  12. What if my child cannot sit still for the duration of the class?
    It is fine if your child decides to move around during class. We do not expect children to sit still through the entire class. However, safety is very important; please do not allow your child to run in the classroom. When children wander from the circle, parents may take the activity over to them or gently bring them back to the circle.

Please feel free to call or e-mail with questions.
We will work closely with you to make your child's music education the finest available.
