Family Music Makers (at Home) Plan

UPDATE - Music Together® is temporarily bringing the music classes you love into your home via multiple online platforms.

Put on your super-parent cape and let's make Music Together. We believe you are the most important role model for your child(ren) and as such we love to inspire you to make music with your family. Our online classes, tutorials, activity ideas and support will give you the tools you need!

Here’s how our Family Music Makers (at Home) Plan works:

Register as usual online, though your class time is now flexible, and you may attend any of the days / times you like

Receive access to private YouTube videos and tutorials from Cheryl and other Music Together Vivo teachers

Enjoy a 30-minute Zoom class each week beginning March 27

Receive 'Maracas' code and online book. Hard copies of 'Maracas' materials may be 'zero contact' delivered, picked up, or mailed as long as we are able

Join 'Music Together Vivo Family and Friends' private Facebook group for live videos and enrolled / alum only community

Receive a personalized Hello Everybody video for your family by Cheryl

Price is now per family, siblings of any age are included in the family price

Contact Cheryl, 703-244-3096 with any questions​​​​​.

In-person classes will resume as soon as it is safe to do so, most likely outdoors first and then in our listed locations. 

The Family Music Makers (at Home) Plan follows the same monthly structure as the Family Music Makers Plan, except that the tuition is now per family rather than per child.

  • Register online for your favorite class time as usual. This will become your ‘home’ class, the one you primarily attend. It is yours until you tell us you want to cancel, freeze, or transfer.
  • When you register for the first time, the total charged will include your first and final months plus a $30 membership fee. All other months will be billed at the flat monthly rate, no add-ons.
  • Billing is automatic after your first enrollment with our new system.
  • Current Music Together Vivo families, your membership fee is waived! Your first registration will simply be 2 months of tuition as above.
  • Enjoy make-up classes that never expire using the make-up scheduler online.
  • To cancel your Family Music Makers Plan, notify Cheryl by the 28th of the month prior to your last class date. For example, if you notify Cheryl on October 28 that you are moving and need to cancel, your card will not be charged for the month of November. Your last class date would then be November 30. November tuition, your last month, would have been pre-paid with your first month’s registration fees. If you notify Cheryl on November 2, November tuition would be charged and your last class date would be December 31. 
  • To freeze your membership, let us know by the 28th of the month prior to your freeze. Each family may freeze membership once per year. To un-freeze, just let us know and you can start back anytime, though your class time is no longer guaranteed after a freeze.
  • How is a freeze different than a cancellation? When you freeze your membership, we assume you are coming back in a month or 2, so we make sure to save your Songbook, App code, and CD for you. You may still attend one bonus event per month while on a freeze.
  • To transfer to a different day or class (ie, a 4 year old wants to move into Rhythm Kids) simply text or email Cheryl.
  • Celebrate the seasons with special Music Together Vivo events 
  • Easy to join mid-month, our registration system will now prorate automatically.
  • Bonus classes - World Music Night, Family Jams, YogaDance, NatureSong Outdoor Adventures, Lantern Walk, and Musical Hikes - are now included with your Family Music Makers Plan. POSTPONED until we are safe to meet in person.

How is tuition charged? When you first register for the Family Music Makers (at Home) Plan, you will be charged for your first month and the final month plus a one-time $30 membership fee. For example, a family with one 18 month old registering for the first time would be charged 96 + 96 + 30 = $222 to become a member and secure their 'home' class space. At the beginning of the following month, their card will be charged for $96 only, repeating until the family notifies us. Previously enrolled Music Together Vivo families are already members and will not be charged a membership fee.

To freeze your membership, let us know by the 28th of the month prior to your freeze. Each family may freeze membership once per year. To un-freeze, just let us know and you can start back anytime, though your class time is no longer guaranteed after a freeze. To cancel your membership, notify us by the 28th of the month prior to your last class date - ie, notify by September 28 to attend your last class on October 31.

Classes are ongoing beginning March 2020

Off weeks - enjoy pre-recorded videos and review old favorites on Cheryl's FB & YouTube

April 6 - 13 (Easter / Spring Break)

May 23 - 25 (Memorial Day Weekend)

June 28 - July 5 (July 4 week)

August 9 - 15 (Summer Break)

September 4 - 7 (Labor Day Weekend)

October 11 - 15 (Autumn Break)

November 23 - 29 (Thanksgiving Week)

December 21 - January 3 (Winter Holidays)

Over the course of a year, this actually gives us MORE weeks together than we received with the session model, even considering ‘Saturday only’ classes. The per-class rate is now lower for families with one child and significantly lower for families with multiple children than with the session model.
