Music Together, presented by Claudia Tulip, is a program for young children and the adults who love them. Children ages birth to five years experience the various stages of primary music development through singing, movement and instrument play. Strong child-parent focus enables each individual child's stage of development to flower within the larger community. Join us the first Tuesday of July and the first Friday of August and September from 10:00-11:00 am in the Youth Services Program Room for Music Together!
