We limit / don’t allow screen time for our kids
We are very concerned about this as well! Making sure that we do not provide passive screen time for children was one of our motivating factors in figuring out how to do interactive virtual classes. The World Health Organization and American Academy of Pediatrics make a clear distinction between passive screen time and active screen time. (Click here to check it out.) For example, video chatting with grandparents does not fall under the category of passive screen time; instead it is considered quality time interacting with others. The Music Class’s virtual classes are an interactive time for you and your child, together with your regular teacher and classmates. Your teacher will still lead stand up songs, ask for substitutions ideas, and do individual tonal and rhythm patterns. Just like a regular class we expect grownups at home to fully participate! The Music Class’s virtual classes do not fall under the category of passive screen time. We definitely understand this is new for everyone and encourage you to try out your first virtual class to see what it’s like!

Can I invite Grandma/Grandpa?
Staying away from grandparents and adult family members keeps them safe, but it isn't very fun. Feel free to share the link for your child's Music Class At Home with them! We just ask that you make this available to adult family members only, and you ask them to join without video so they won't be distracting to your classmates. It's an easy way for family in different places to feel connected!
How should we dress for online yoga class?
Please wear clothes that are suitable for movement! We will be stretching, jumping, twirling, etc! Remember that everyone can see each other, so even though you might have a relaxed dress code at home and/or you might be potty-training, please make sure your family is dressed appropriately as if you were coming to the studio for class!
