According to SSC Music Together Director Karen Peterson, current families are raving about the experience.  The King family said, “Music Together Online is so great! Our three and one-year-old are just as captivated by it as when the classes were in person! We love the music, and getting to see Karen and our friends each week! We still get to sing and dance with all our friends, and you get a great CD and music book! Our kids have learned so much from Music Together! We LOVE Music Together Online, and we recommend it to all our friends!”
