South Shore Conservatory, the region’s largest community school for the arts, announces open registration for a summer session of their popular Music Together® program. Classes begin May 31. The program serves babies, toddlers and preschool children, between the ages of zero to four, accompanied by a caregiver.
Music Together® classes encourage families to become musical together. Children and adults discover the transformative power of musical play through song, dance and instruments. The joyful Music Together environment not only provides the gift of music, but also creates connections that can last a lifetime. Studies have shown that children who participate in music early in life often excel in math and reading later in life.
Classes are offered at South Shore Conservatory’s campuses located at the Ellison Center for the Arts, 64 St. George Street, Duxbury, and at One Conservatory Drive, Hingham. Satellite classes are offered at the South Shore Community Center, 3 North Main Street, Cohasset.
Music Together students registered for the summer session at any location may also attend SSC’s five Wacky Wednesdays family concerts in the Jane Carr Amphitheater, Hingham, for free. Concerts include Karen K and the Jitterbugs on June 29, Keith Munslow on July 6, Little Groove on July 13, Vanessa Trien and the Jumping Monkeys on July 20 and Zak Morgan on July 27. The 2016 Wacky Wednesdays family concert series is sponsored by the Harold and Avis Goldstein Trust.
