Chagrin Falls Buzz-Worthy Businesses & City Notes

Music Together of the Chagrin Valley

An innovative music and movement program for newborns to children age 5 and their parents or caregivers, which is based on the belief that all children are inherently musical.

The classes are fun, spirited and developmentally appropriate. The children sing, dance and play freely because they know the songs from the recording and songbook that they take home. They explore instruments, create rhythm patterns and develop basic music competence in a fun-filled setting for 45 minutes a week in each 10-week family session. Contact Anne Murphy at 440-543-5025 or visit MusicTogether4Kids.com to join a class in Chagrin Falls/Bainbridge and Shaker Heights.
