What People Say

See what our parents and students have to say about our classes.

I don't think I've had the opportunity to tell you how thrilled I am to have found Music Together (but you probably could've guessed that I felt that way!). The program is so uniquely structured and the music is of such wonderful quality. I am also so appreciative of the musical/developmental insights that you offer, having a music ed. background myself. I tried a couple of Park District music programs with Caitlin because she's so musical and social and was very disappointed with those classes (lack of musical knowledge on the part of the instructors, cheesy music, no substantive pedagogical theory). I have bragged about your program (and you as a teacher!) to so many people! Caitlin loves your class and I'm thrilled with the results. Again, thank you so much for what you offer to parents and children through Music Together.

Lisa, just wanted to drop you a line to let you know how much we are enjoying Music Together again. At 2 ½ Megan always looks forward to class and talks about it afterward. However, it is Dana who seems to be so excited by music in all aspects, particularly this class. You have always said that a baby gets its first taste of music in the womb, and now I have no doubt that this is true. She gets so excited and animated when we play music, it is a joy to watch. At 7 months, she squeals with delight and bounces up and down when Chris plays the piano, or when we sing. I swear she was born with a rhythm that Chris and I lack. We are always listening to the old Music Together CDs at home and in the car, and she responds to our favorites in ways that lets us know she knows them too. You are such a fantastic teacher, and your love of music shines through in each and every class. Thank you!

I just wanted to let you know that this is the best parent/child class I've ever taken (and Libby is my 3rd kid so I've taken quite a few). You do a fantastic job! Thanks!!

She's now dancing all the time at home whenver she hears music even though her dancing is just bouncing up and down but it's so cute! She also just gets so excited when we turn the nursery rhymes we found on the on demand cable too and claps and dances to the singing and music but she gets to see the other kids dancing too which is fun. She loves when we dance around the house with her too and gets these huge smiles and her famous little kick of her legs and wave of her arms which she hasn't completely outgrown yet. This class has been awesome for her and helped in more ways than we could have imagined. You are an awesome teacher and thanks for showing Maura an environment that we wouldn't have without you.

thanks,

....And by the way this is the first time Ali (their dad) started coming to Music Together, and he is SO impressed with the class and the way you teach. He and I think that this program will have such a huge impact on Emery's and Pierson's lives, and I know it's important that we carry home (almost daily!) what we learn . So thank you for all that you do!

I hope you are enjoying your Christmas break. Matt and I just wanted to share a story with you. About 2 weeks ago when we were putting Aiden to bed we asked Maura if she wanted to sing him a bed time song. She loves to sing and often does but bits and pieces of words and phrases for various songs. So, imagine our surprise when she says yes and then proceeds to sing all the words to Itsy Bitsy Spider, then Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, then the ABC song all in a row like they were one big song. She sings the ABC song all the time but we had never heard her sing the other two; if you would have asked me if she could sing them I would have told you no because she didn't know the words. It was great to see it and I'm quite sure is 100% a result of her being in your class. Aiden was all smiles looking at her the whole time she was singing to him. She had a huge smile too, like she was the star of a show. It was a wonderful experience for all of us. We feel it is an incredible result from all the time and dedication that you have given to us in teaching her.

Thanks!

Thanks so much for your help, and for all you do! I'm an elementary band teacher and have been bringing Caroline to Music Together classes whenever we can fit it in since she was 6 or 7 months old. It's really exciting to watch her developing musically (especially gratifying to hear her developing a strong sense of pitch, since I know a lot of 5th/6th graders who still have a tough time with this!) and learning to LOVE MUSIC. I know this program has played a significant role. :)

Thanks again,
