Hello Islanders! I wanted to take a minute to say thank you to our community. I'm not sure I can even articulate my deep gratitude to all of the families over the last 13 years who have filled my classes.
Some of you may know that I'm moving out of state, and have hired a teacher to teach my classes here on Bainbridge. (I will be opening and teaching Music Together® classes in Montana while I attend graduate school, and will still be running Little Woodstock Music Together in both states.)
Anyway, I wanted to post here to thank you all for the incredible honor it has been to be part of your lives when your kiddos were little ones. I received so much joy from you all every week over the last 13 years. How many people are lucky enough to be able to say that?
Before I leave town, we are having a Little Woodstock "Family Reunion" at Battlepoint Park this Tuesday, July 25th between 12:00-2 ish. It would be so fun to see families who've been in classes over the years and reconnect with other families from the old days or the current days too! It's impromptu, folks are just bringing a picnic lunch and meeting by the playground.
Come by if you're able. Would love to see some of you before I go! And thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of the laughter, the community, and the support you've surrounded me with. I will take all of the beautiful memories along with me.
Thank you Bainbridge families. From the bottom of my heart. I miss you all already.
Classes are now open to Current Families (only) for registration in our winter semester.

If you would like to be on a list of interested families to add another class (if we still don't get many people off the waitlist and into classs next semester), please send an email and reference "New Class" in the subject line. Thank you!
Looking to join us for Spring semester? Classes are now posted to the website, and current families are pre-registering for their current spots from March 11th- March 18th.

If you would like to get on the waitlist, please send an email. It's helpful as I may be able to determine earlier if I need to add a class this semester!

New this fall: A Very Special Music Together Parent-Child Class located in Suquamish. This class is in collaboration with Kids In Concert (KIC) and their program to establish an El Sistema Model Youth Orchestra. The very youngest kids in the program will attend a Music Together class each week along with their very own, grown up "mentor" from the KIC Program. These children will attend the class with their grown up just as your children attend MT class with you. They will have the CD's, Songbooks and Family Materials at home to share with their families too. The goal of this very special Music Together class is not only to reach the youngest kids in the community with early childhood music, but also to help them along the way in achieving "readiness" as they grow older and join the KIC program to learn an instrument.
This class is only open to families who have taken at least 2 semesters with Little Woodstock Music Together. By attending this class each week with your own children, you are there as a simple model of participation, kindness, understanding, support, encouragement and fun, positive energy. Just come and be your awesome self each week and know that you are indirectly benefiting this class with your modeling and good energy. We need you! If you are interested in registering for this class, please contact me directly. (206) 595-3139.
