Are you as antsy as we are to get back into the swing of things?
We know you have been waiting for information about spring classes!
While New York is on Pause, Not Just Art can now bring the joy of family music right into your homes. During unsettling times, children (and grownups!) need to feel the security of what is familiar and the positive power of music.
So we are VERY happy to be able to offer Music Together Online! Please watch this short message from the CEO of Music Together:
Music Together Online (MTO) provides the same high-quality music and movement curriculum Not Just Art has been proud to offer all these years.
As always, Music Together is about the connection of the parent/caregiver and child through the active music making process.
Like in our classes, the program is designed to teach the way young children learn: through play! Your whole family will have fun singing, dancing and jamming along to Maracas collection songs - now in pajamas, too!
What does Spring Session MTO look like?
Beginning April 13, families enrolled for the spring Music Together Online session will have access to:
- Six 20-minute pre-recorded online classes per week for a total of 10 weeks through a new closed Facebook page only for registered families.
We will post a new class with one of NJA's Music Together teachers each day Monday through Saturday, throughout the entire session! You can view them at any time throughout the week to suit your family's schedule. Music Together Online "on demand"!
If you are not on Facebook, we will provide an alternate online platform for you to access the videos.
- Maracas song collection music and materials. The digital download code can be used in the Hello Everybody! app, or on a computer in the Music Together "Family Music Zone". The songbook/cd will be mailed to your home.
- Fun daily extra videos and downloadable resources made or chosen by our teachers on the Maracas Facebook page: coloring pages, musical games, lullabies, story times, craft ideas, parent education moments, live dance parties, etc.
- Videos from Music Together's Uncle Gerry, exclusively for enrolled families.

What do I need to do to enroll in Music Together Online Spring?
At the moment registration will be via email. We hope to have online registration up in a few days.
To enroll, please reply to this email at your earliest convenience and include your and your child(ren)'s name.
Once we hear from you, you'll receive more detailed instructions on how to register and to join the private Maracas Facebook group and access all of the online offerings once the session begins.
We may not be able to share the same roof right now, but we can still be silly and playful together! We encourage you to think of this as a way to connect with your children, teachers and other families. We need each other. We need something for our little ones. We need music.
You are dear to us, and we and can't wait to connect with you!
Stay tuned for art offerings soon!
Stay Healthy. We miss you!
